Bloom Day in the Greenhouse

It isn't as interesting in there as I wish it were. The cat who had a nice little wicker shelf on which to lie moved over to the middle of a shelf of Christmas Cacti where he has a better view of the outdoors when the door is open.

This one Christmas Cactus decided to bloom late. The season lasted for a really long time from Thanksgiving to Valentine's. It's time to move the Easter/Mother's day Cactus collection to a better spot so they can get ready for their show.

 Hyacinths have bloomed in strange ways. I don't know why I expected that Gypsy Queen would bloom with earlier ones just because I bought them in a 'collection.'

Make a note to always buy them all of a color and pot up single pots when buying a mix. Single pots make a fun little gift and so do pots of 3 or 4 of a color. Mixed pots last a long time but you have that green stem left after you cut off the florets of the earliest bloomers.



Shrimp Plants: a chance cutting from a little broken piece and a volunteer over in the corner.

Pelargoniums are on next year's list.
Kalanchoes not so much.

A last peek through the door.

Happy Bloom Day. What IS Bloom Day?

Two of my Thanksgiving cactus are getting ready to rebloom. It's been an outstanding year; not sure why.

The hyacinths are so beautiful, if only they will thrive in hot climes. My sister once brought me a few bulbs from NZ, unfortunately they died after emergence. So sad.

Everything looks like so good. Nice to see blooms in the midst of winter.

Wow, that pelargonium has done you proud. Like the Energizer Bunny it just keeps going and going! Your hyacinths are beautiful. I just brought the first couple of pots into the greenhouse from outside.
