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

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
