There's a scarcity of blooms, but an abundance of snow in our neck of the woods on this December Bloom Day, due to another snow storm last Friday. It socked us with about 8 inches of new snow. We were lucky enough to avoid the ice storms and power loss that many in the Northeast experienced.
The only plant putting on a show at the moment is this pretty Christmas Cactus (Zygo Cactus).
I love the way the buds are a purplish pink but the flowers turn out to be more of a reddish shade.
The Azalea that was looking so pretty in the fall, dressed in a deep shade of burgundy, is now wearing snowy white.
....and the Crab Apple (Malus).
My dear husband set up a place in the cellar, with fluorescent lights overhead, to overwinter some of my plants, so we have quite a nice little indoor garden downstairs.
A few of the Ivy Geraniums are down there (This is Taj Mahal)...
...but most are in two spare bedrooms upstairs. Some of them are blessing us with a few blooms at the moment.
If I look closely I can also find a few blooms on the following plants:
ColumniaWax begonias - 3 varieties
Reiger Begonia - just beginning to bloom
Angel Wing Begonia
Baby Wing Begonia
Diamond Frost Euphorbia
To see what's blooming all around the world, visit Carol of May Dreams Gardens.
Happy Bloom Day everyone!
