I want a bathrobe that looks like those African violet blooms -- they seem so frilly and luxurious!


Bud check! I love that. I wonder if you'd mind if I borrowed it and took a stroll outside. I noticed a few buds on one of my Vibernums. Granted I'm in Zone 8. I love your inside buds. What promise they hold. Great post!


Note to self: Need a greenhouse in next place we live.

Kathleen, I just love seeing new life bloom this time of year. Thank you for sharing.


I will have to look at my Clivia now!! How fun.
Your violet is the sweetest shade of pink. Love it.


Kathleen - my African violets are going nuts and just blooming their heads off after a brief dormancy for the past few months.

My amaryllis are showing good signs of having a nice blooming season.

Keep up the good work - I really enjoy your pix - since we are zone neighbors here in Colorado.


O.K. Kathleen you inspired me to grow some winter bulbs this season. Today I purchased paperwhites and an amaryllis. I would still like to find the 'Novella' amaryllis, but had no luck today in two garden centers. I'll keep looking. I am like you, any blooming plants in the winter bring me so much joy!


Kathleen, I just viewed your amaryllis beautiful! You have a GREEN thumb for sure! I love the 'Fairytale' and 'Elvas' varieties! They remind me of candycane stripes. Where were you able to locate those particular varieties. I have only been able to find the more common 'Red Lion' and 'Apple Blossom' varieties.


You have a smorgasboard of blooms to look forward to this month Kathleen. :)
