If you are new to blogging, you may not know that Carol, of May Dreams Gardens hosts this once a month event. Click on her blog name to see a list of people showing what's alive this time of year, and those in warmer places than where I am may actually have some blooms.
(Added at 5:30 p.m. CST- If you continue to scroll down, you'll see a tour of my yard from Saturday, when the high was in the upper fifties. Today's high was less than 10 degrees fahrenheit, and right now, it is 4 degrees. Brr!)
I have African violets blooming, in spite of the fact that it's quite cold in the garden window, and some of the leaves are not looking good.
The rosemarys are alive still!
The chives are getting spindly. The scented geranium needs dead leaves pulled off. Another rosemary is on the right, I think, Arp.
The Goodwin Creek lavender has a couple blooms.
I am having to take my bay out of the window to water the African violets. I think I need to cut back the tall angel wing begonia in the back, as it's starting to look spindly.
It has new growth, though.
Larry takes care of the watering of plants in the computer room. He bought this rabbit's foot fern from our downtown farmers' market a couple summers ago. He takes it down to the shower in the basement to water it, aiming for once a week.
This assortment of plants should survive the winter, but some are starting to get spindly. (This will be the 3rd or 4th winter for these plants. The plant on the right is oxalis.)
I didn't show all the plants in the house, as some of them are also shown on my posts on collections.
