I know the focus this time of year is usually on outdoor blooms but I just have to share the "bounty" going on in my greenhouse bathroom right now. It just wouldn't be right to keep it to myself. First the $6.00 clearance Phalaenopsis Orchid (bought two years ago) opened it's first bud today on the new bloom stalk:
A closer look because you knew I couldn't resist:
Two slipper orchids remain in bloom ~ the one my brother sent me from Hawaii and 'Pine Knot' that I recently shared with you:
They look striking paired together, don't they?
Something else blooming profusely is Streptocarpus 'Black Panther:'
What a great little houseplant. It must thrive on neglect because I pay it almost no attention and yet it rewards me with a bevy of blooms. What's not to love about that scenario?
Last but not least, an African violet (name unknown) picked up on a whim at Lowes:
I bet you can guess why it ended up in my cart?!!
Tomorrow the amaryllis are being moved outdoors for the summer. I haven't told them yet, but I'm sure they'll be excited! :-) While I'm out there, I'll be sure and photograph the garden. It seems like it's been a while.
