    progress and ... iffiness.

    Indoor Counter garden , Pleiospilos nelii , and Lithops - BUTTS!
    My Pleiospilos nelii is budding! It has a wee flower bud coming up. I can’t wait to see the little orange flower show up. As well, one of my lithops has new leaves showing! I was hoping it would flower like the other one has, but it appears they aren’t exactly in sync. The other littl...

    Lithops - BUTTS!
    Totally was not expecting this but one of my recently purchased lithops plants is about to flower! I’m interested to see if the other plants in the pot flower or not.

    flowering

    bush pickles Blooming
    I’ve got clusters of buds and a few early males showing up. At least I think they’re males. I don’t see any ova underneath the flower, but it might not have grown yet.

    Yes, even the 12 inches we got up near Tom’s house, which made the drive from Grantham to Farnsfield an absolute nightmare (a lot of skidding and car-pushing), had completely disappeared thanks to the surprisingly warm Sunday and Monday. However, now it’s horrid and windy and rainy an...

    Still Plodding On

    Hippeastrum 'Red Lion' Budding, Hippeastrum 'Apple Blossom' Budding, and Clivia miniata Budding
    But happier now. Some time has elapsed, and now I have less time to wait before I can move in with Tom. It’s still so frustrating, but… believable now. At the last moment my mother sent me her address and I am still able to rent a room there, which is a relief. At the moment I’m...

    Amaryllis Budding and Home garden
    Another of my Amaryllis bulbs is now showing another bud, too! We had been away for two weeks in Spain,where the weather was little different from here in the UK! It may have been a little warmer but we also had a lot of rain & some very cold days as well! When we got back I found another bul...

    Amaryllis Budding and Home garden
    I have 2 more Amaryllis budding which will flower during October! One is in the living room, in a window that faces more or less East, the other is on the kitchen windowsill. The first of the two is the most advanced as the bud is now about 30cm/1ft tall. The one in the kitchen windowsill is only...

    (And I think this one will bring me up to date!) I’ve done a bit of violet work over the past three days, and I will combine them all in this journal. I’ve been working out trades for next month when the weather cools down with several friends in my on-line Violet group. It’s a ...

    A cold and rainy day outside – perfect for updating the violet inventory inside. Some new blooms, some buds waiting to bloom, some new sprouts. We had one very cool night and I forgot and left the windows open. Most of the flowers on the violets in the south window ended up drying and shriv...

    These are flowers that have bloomed over the past week. Pics to document the milestones. AND… it seems like overnight, my Valerian in the BBB is about 6 feet tall and blooming. Smells wonderful! I went to two of the local nurseries that I frequent to pick up some annuals for pots and window...

    It was raining this morning, though it was supposed to clear by afternoon. I took some time to do some violet work. All the babies needed to be watered and all the leaves needed to be checked to be sure the potting mix was moist and none of the leaves were starting to rot. I continued with the re...

    I’m very excited! Besides all the Violets that are now blooming, there are also several Violets that are budding, many for the very first time. I can’t wait to see what some of these first-timers look like in person. Blooming right now: Ballet Snowcone 1, 2 & 4; Rhapsodie Rebecca;...
