Katarina, at Roses and Stuff hosts Blooming Friday, and today has started her season of showing indoor blooms, but has also asked us what we are feasting our eyes on. I have so much blooming later than I can recall, that I thought I'd go ahead and post photos of them, even though most of them were blooming for other posts. I am not going to label all of the plants, because our grandson is spending the night, and I have stayed up too late as he sleeps beside me, and if he wakes up early, I need to be ready to get up.
The first several photos were taken Wednesday, and the rest, Thursday during a break from cooking, while I was giving Heidi a chance to run around before being left.
The star of the show has to be the sweet pea from Botanical Seeds. I've said the name of it before, but can't think of it now. There are several colors, and they have been blooming, I think since late spring. I almost pulled them when the hot weather stressed them, but didn't, because they were still blooming.
I forgot which kind of lavender:
I am no longer a strawflower "snob" who tells people they should be pulling the blooms off to dry before they get to this stage. I have really enjoyed the several colors I have, and the statice as well.
Jupiter's Beard blooms most of the summer, and is still producing.
These stocks have been awesome, too, blooming since late spring.
This was the first year I had reblooming irises. This one is determined to finish, but the cold night temps are causing it problems.
I do have a couple new blooms inside on African violet plants that almost died a few weeks ago, when they got too dry. Now that I'm doing a better job watering, they are starting to bloom again.
Have a great weekend! Tootsie, from Tootsie Time is taking a break this week from Fertilizer Friday for the U.S. bloggers who celebrate Thanksgiving. I did a pretty good job of not overeating, but ate my chocolate when I sat down to put this post together, so I've consumed plenty today.
