Winter Blooming Flowers 12-18-2013

I can’t believe I wrote Winter & Blooming Flowers in the same sentence…. I am technically correct, but of course we’re talking about indoor plants, or more specifically, tropical plants. I just can’t help myself when I go to the Home Depot Plant Adoption Center & the ‘lil guys are staring up at me with their pink, red, purple or white eyes. I am a hopeless fool for the plant that hasn’t bloomed yet, but has plenty of buds, that gets passed over by the other potential plant parents. These people miss the full potential this budded beauty will become and the fact it will bloom for so much longer than the ones already flaunting their flowers.

  1. It’s funny – we call the “Thanksgiving Cactus” the Christmas Cactus over here in Europe. Maybe because we don’t have Thanksgiving?!! Lovely pix. Enjoyed (as always) your post.

    • Ha! Yes, it’s funny how the common names of plants change with locality. I usually use the Latin name, as that is universal, but then if you’re not a plant geek, I might as well be speaking alien!! Thank you for the compliment & have a wonderful Christmas & New Year!!!

  2. Beautiful. My Christmas cactus is blooming, too! And I brought in a plant pot that had chives and they think it’s spring. They are coming up and I throw them in soup. Yum!
