Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day – November 2008.

The pickin’s are slim this month. In fact, I was surprised that I was able to find anything blooming in the garden at all. I’ve got to thank Carol of May Dreams Gardens  for the motivation to look.

pb130518 A few blossoms on my obediant plant. 

pb130521 One last mum plant is still going strong.

The pansies, now planted, should hopefully bloom whenever we get a little sun throughout the whole winter

    Thanks for the compliments. The nice thing about having such an old cactus – no pampering is needed. It gets a lot of bright, indirect light and gets watered once a week.

    I like your flowers, especially the pansies and Christmas cactus.
