Garden Bloggers Bloom Day -- December 2016

Right now, after our recent series of hard frosts and light snow, there is nothing flowering out in the garden on Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. Fortunately, there is a scant handful of flowers inside the greenhouse.

Echeveria 'Black Prince'

Old Lady Cactus Mammillaria hahniana
Technically not open yet, Begonia fuchsioides is about to flower, so I'm including it -- after all, who knows what will be going on in January?

Pelargonium sidoides hasn't stopped since I brought it into the greenhouse, but the finish line is near, I think

I repotted Iochroma 'Ashcott Red' when I brought it into the greenhouse, and it flushed out a new set of leaves and lots of flowers

Aloe 'Grassy Lassie' puts out a tiny flower, not open yet, but such an intense orange I had to share it

  1. Thank goodness for things blooming in the greenhouse and thank you for influencing me to get one of my own! Because we're lower and closer to the water, there are still a few things in bloom outside but this week may put an end to that.

  2. Greenhouses are wonderful things. You have quite a lot blooming in yours! I think I only have a couple plants blooming in mine. I still have blooms outside, though. We'll see what's left, if anything, after this week.

  3. Oh that Pelargonium sidoides!!! Don't you have a few Arctostaphylos Alison? Are none of them blooming?

  4. I don't think I have any blooms today. I love that cactus photo.

  5. Your greenhouse was an excellent investment! I envy you the Pelargonium sidoides - I've yet to have any success with that plant.

  6. I was surprised to see your flowers, then read that you have a greenhouse! Lovely, especially the color of your pelargonium. I was born in Seattle and am a transplant to Brazil, where it's spring and flowers are everywhere... feel free to check out my Bloom Day post. www.courtneyhelena.com

  7. Greenhouses really get us through the winter! I miss mine, but know I will build another one some day. Thanks for sharing your bounty!

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.
