Garden Bloggers Bloom Day ~ November 2012
Heaps of snow, outdoors & Plumeria Buds, indoors. I'm coming up empty on this Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day.
The outdoor gardens are buried under a chilly drift of snow. Indoors, the house is filled with Coming Attractions...
Orchid BudBuds, buds and more buds...
Been waiting around all afternoon for this little lady to open up ~ desperately wanted to show off one new goodie. I suppose she'll do so tomorrow, when it's too late to claim her as a bloom day bloom.
Apologies for so many lame photos.
I'm just wandering around the house documenting what's happening. So many buds on this Orchid, she's drooping under the weight. When she does get around to flowering, it should be spectacular.
Someday soon, we'll be enjoying Calla Lilies and Amaryllis, but not on this bloom day...
What do you think about that Spanish colonial cross thingy in the background? I can't decide if it's cool. Or, tacky. It doesn't fit into the decor of this house at all. It's just a little reminder for me that I should be moving south to New Mexico, where I'd most likely be weeding an outdoor garden today.
I'm conducting an odd experiment with Hen and Chicks indoors. IF this wretched little thing survives, (and that's a very big if) she could become an extra special Christmas present...
I do have some ecstatic bloomers in my lair ~ aka the office...
A couple of little cuties in the kitchen...
Pay a visit to Carol at May Dreams Gardens to meet other gardeners in kinder climates. And, Happy Bloom Day, Everyone!
