What's Blooming





   What is blooming this week?

From my yard, one of my potted plants-
Streptocarpus a.k.a. Ladyslippers featured with
 sweet potato vine in dark magenta.

My neighbor introduced me to this streptocarpus and she was able to bring it in over winter and re-bloom this summer. I am hoping to do the same.

Anything blooming in your area this week?




until next time ...

  13. Pretty flowers! I like geraniums because they're easy to grow and hard to kill. Not too hot and dry this year, so most flowers are doing well.
