Here in Nebraska, zone 5b, we are experiencing single digit temps, so I will not be posting pics from outside this month. To make it quicker to add the pics to the blog, I put them in the order they were in my document file, which means they are in alphabetical order, and so, we will go back and forth between 3 different rooms.
For today's GBBD, this angel wing begonia is growing, but not blooming.
The bay plant is producing large leaves, probably because the plant is inside. It is kept in the shade in summer, though.
The hens and chicks are holding on, hoping for summer to get here soon.
The Holiday Cactus Pink Naomi, purchased after Christmas for $2.00 looks like it may bloom.
Here you see the whole plant, which I was pleased to find, as looking at so many on the December GBBD posts caused me to want one.
The mother of thousands is having lots of babies on the edges of its leaves, some of which have dropped and are growing, but on the spindly side. They will do better when it's warm enough for them to be outside in the sun.
The kitchen plant over the sink needs some dead material removed, but is doing better than when bought at an estate sale. I don't know what it is, but it reminds me of wandering Jew.
Our daughter is a floral designer, and she brought this poinsettia to us Christmas Eve, glitter and all. I have kept it alive so far.
Larry's rabbit tail fern seems quite happy. He takes it to the downstairs shower about once a week to water it. The window faces south.
The rosemary is still blooming, bless its heart!
The spider plants are not blooming, but have lots of babies. (I didn't take pics of all of them, but we have several.)
Some of the plants are stressed, but others are doing quite well. I hope they all hold on until spring! For more blooms, visit Carol at May Dreams Gardens, the originator of GBBD.
I am also putting in links to a series of posts on amsonias in my yard, where you will see flowers from other seasons. The first, was about a love that began in an alley. The second was about Amsonia hubrichtii. Next was the one that was not my true love, and the fourth was the final installment, one of my favorite plants.
