Things are looking brighter here. The sun is stronger, the shadows longer. My indoor plants are taking notice. My rosemary is doing unbelievably well this year. Both types are blooming (usually just the creeping blooms).
Amaryllis Evergreen is growing. It has a big, beautiful bud that I can’t wait to see unfold. It looks green as promised. There are more leaves peeking from the bulb. I may even get a second stalk.
For those of you who do not regularly read my blog, I have been struggling with where to place my orchids since we moved into our NY house. They were extremely happy in their spot in our Maine house. Here, not so much. Many have dwindled into smaller and smaller plants and I haven’t had one bloom in four or five years. I moved them once again into my office/studio and invested in some large bell jars to hold warmth and humidity. (See previous post Project: Indoor Garden Shelf) I am happy to report it is working! I finally have a spike on my moth orchid (it is to the left tucked under the leaf). Hopefully my other orchids will positively respond, too.
This is what the flower will look like from a previous picture of this orchid blooming in Maine.
There may be a few buds outdoors in the garden but for now they are buried in snow. What is blooming for you? Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day is hosted by Carol at May Dreams Gardens on the 15th of each month. Share the love, share your blooms!
