I hope everyone in the states are enjoying their
Thanksgiving and for those who do not celebrate Thanksgiving or are well past Canada Day are having a wonderful weekend too. Everyone is caught up
on family and friends and stuffed like so many turkeys
and the guilt is just now sinking in, “Get Over It Already!”
This weekend is also filled with football and Ohio State is
playing against rival Michigan State Saturday so I have to throw out a …
We are running the gambit in weather extremes
the last few days with all of them including the wet
varieties; rain, sleet, and snow flurries.
So it is going to be blooms that are happening indoors now.
The poor Christmas Cactus is blooming and I am
wondering how since it was so neglected this summer.
It was left to drown and parch off and on all summer.
Blown over a few times and attacked by Meow and still
it is blooming.
New potting soil is what it will get after it has finished blooming. I wonder if die from the shock if I give it some tender care? LOL!
This African Violet is also starting to bloom again.
Some sad news to report ,or gardening failures, is
that both of the Streptocrapus plants, Roulette Red and
Inkblot died this summer. I have the worst luck keeping
indoors plants growing but it was my own fault where they are concerned. We put on a water softener and
I think the salt got to them before I thought about the
consequences it would have on the plants.
The violets were salvaged by changing out the soil and
are starting to recover again.
Now if I can keep from doing them anymore damage.
The Amaryllis bulbs are out of the dark basement
and into the light and are starting to grow. I am hoping
they will bloom again for me. They were a blessing
last winter when I was hungry to see colorful blooms.
The yellow miniature roses have had a set back since
they were brought indoors. It lost almost all of its leaves
but is now starting to recover.
I see additions to the indoor plants again this winter
as my cabin fever and want for color increases.
What are you growing indoors this winter?
