The Lonicera Sempervirens has two clumps of these bud/blooms on it. As you can see it is in protest though. The leaves have turned yellow and the blooms will soon freeze off for the winter.
Inside this is the first winter in some time that I haven't a Orchid bloom to share. The orchids have plenty of buds. Maybe next month.
There is one air plant that has a bloom or two. They are so intriguing. This one looks sort of like an octopus when it isn't blooming but the pretty purple buds open with the flower. You can almost see the pollen. You can see at least 2 spent flowers on it and one yet to come.
This time of year wouldn't be the same without an amaryllis in bud or bloom. This one is named Minerva. It is the most odd acting amaryllis I have ever had. The blooms aren't lasting very long. They are sure pretty while they do last. It has had 5 blooms so far and still has a bud. I can't complain...can I? I do wish they would last longer.
Here where we have so much frost and cold tho it is nice to have a few blooms to warm us.
Do you have any blooms this winter? Please do share with everyone over at Carol's blog who hosts the Bloom Day on the 15th of every month here. When you go there you can also see what is blooming all over the world.
