It got down to -13 degrees F. last night, the lowest since a day in January of 2007, when it got down to -15. Since we had a third day off of work due to the weather, I spent some time pulling dead or dying leaves off of plants and rearranging to find spots for some that were still on the floor. I enjoyed deadheading my holiday cactus. I was gardening indoors! I noticed that there are still lots of buds forming. I have been seeing some pretty holiday cacti on blogs, and hope to find some more, now that this one is doing well. It may require more rearranging, though.
There were buds forming next to some of the spent blooms.
A few of the blooms are still in their prime.
This was taken after the deadheading, but before the rearranging. I moved the angel wing begonias to a spot that gets less light to make room for the agapanthus I am hoping will bloom next year. This is my first time to grow one.
Katarina, of Roses and Stuff, who lives in Sweden, where it is Friday, got to go to the Nobel banquet 12 years ago, and is remembering that and featuring some exotic blooms for Blooming Friday. Check her blog for more Blooming Friday links. Tootsie, of Tootsie Time hasn't put up her Fertilizer Friday post yet, because it's Thursday in the United States. Check her blog out for more posts Friday U.S. time.
I have a few more plants blooming, but plan to post them in a week for GBBD. Have a great weekend!
