Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Yearning For the Great Outdoors

My Abutilon, which has spent the winter inside in my only south-facing window, along with all my other succulent pots and dishes, has started flowering again.

Abutilon flowers getting friendly with a close-by Aloe.

It looks like it is yearning to be outdoors.

Me too.


  1. Such pretty flowers..reminds me of crepe paper.
    I'll be so glad when we get a long break from this gloomy weather..ugh.

    Have a happy weekend. xo

  2. I love the flowers and the foliage on that one!! I don't blame it for yearning to b outside, I think we all are. :-)


  3. How wonderful! Looks like you've kept it very happy. I moved my Abutilon the other day, it was hidden behind the huge (didn't die back) melianthus...I also discovered it has flower buds, yay!

  4. Looks beautiful. That's one houseplant I've never tried.

  5. I don't have abutilon but have decided this is the year!!!! Thanks for pushing me over the abutilon edge!!!!


Gardening is a solitary activity. But blogging about it is a social phenomenon! I don't make money from my blog by advertising, or use it to drive customers to a business. If you liked my post, or my writing or photography, or even just one picture or turn of phrase, I'd love to hear from you. That's how I get paid.
