Garden Bloggers Bloom Day - January 2014

This winter has been such a harsh winter so far. Nothing was predictible about this since no one warned us about a Polar Vortex taking over our area for a week or so. Happily inside the weather is not so bad.
There is an orchid in bloom. Please disregard the cobwebs. I do.
There is also a begonia blooming it's little head off.  Don't you love winter sun? 
If you need a shot of blooming photos head over to Carol's blog and have a peek at blooms from around the world. It is summer someplace. 
Happy Garden Bloggers Bloom day.

  1. I failed this Bloom Day, but I love trolling around and vicariously enjoying indoor - and outdoor - blooms.

  2. What a pretty orchid! Maybe that is what I need to perk me up--nothing is blooming here, not even the amaryllis, which I potted up late. I think I may have to go plant shopping--it could be a long winter.

    Hope all is well with you, Lisa.

  4. Lovely Orchid, beautiful color. I have one with buds, which I feel is a real accomplishment. Everybody should have one for the winter doldrums. Happy Bloom Day.

  14. You asked about our drought. Yes, the worst in history they say.
    As to the cob webs I see that as a lovely home for the lucky spider who wove that web. Stay warm.
    We are at 70 degrees not normal for January here.

  15. I love those begonia blooms - they are such an amazing contrast to the foliage on that one. I’m particularly fond of all the spotted ones - the angel wings. Stay warm!

  16. You and I are kindred spirits because I never see cobwebs-or dust for that matter. What a pretty begonia! A spot of sun for sure. Stay warm!
