This Garden Bloggers Bloom Day finds me trussed up like a Christmas goose in front of the fireplace. I sit here with great anticipation. No, not about Santa's arrival but about the blooms and buds that the indoor garden is giving me this time of year.
Not that there is much going on outside in my zone 6 garden that is frozen over but inside. A few of the plants that I brought inside this fall are giving me some buds and blooms.
The limey begonia is starting to put up some buds that will soon turn into the sweet little polka dotted blooms I like so much.
You can see here that one is about to open as other buds are peeking up through the leaves.
My most famous performer in December is this Orchid that begins blooming almost as soon as I bring it inside. It is so thankful to be inside it sends up some blooms to thank me for bringing it in. These blooms normally last through winter and I am indeed thankful for them.
Yes, I know this isn't exactly a bloom is it?? It is a small lemon on my little Lemon tree. I just had to throw it in for a little excitement. It is another thing I am looking forward to with great anticipation.
When you get a little down time and need some quiet lovely blooms to soothe your busy nerves of the season, pop over to Carol's blog for more blooms of the month.
