'Naomi' is finished blooming. The other holiday cacti in the smaller pots have had a few blooms, but also have some nubs that haven't yet.
I thought of going out into the cold to take photos of seedheads, but I've already shown some lately. It occurred to me that I have flowers in some form in every room of the house I go into, so I went around and took lots of photos, most of which did not turn out decently. I have been working on organizing and getting rid of clutter in a room upstairs, so these photos include dust. Don't look too closely if you are faint of heart.
Entry Way at the Back Door:
KJ's Toy Room/Computer Room:
(That's a phone book on the bottom of the pile that says something about a law office. We are not using the services of any lawyers.)
Stairway to Second Floor:
Base of Steps:
(The only reason I have this Roseville vase is because it had been broken and repaired. Otherwise, I wouldn't have been able to afford it.)
The Room I'm trying to Clean:
I grew all of the flowers and dried them except for the next ones, which are part of a wreath type thing I made in a class a number of years ago. It's down, because I need to sort through and get rid of most of the flowers in. I normally only keep dried flowers around 2 or 3 years, sometimes fewer.
I came across this photo of a young me from over 15 years ago, at our previous home. Even though the peas are loaded, they still have some blooms on them. I need to get some rabbit fencing so I can have a crop like this again.
I am excited to think that in a month, it will be the middle of February, and I may be able to get started planting my early crops. I've already told some of you that I've decided to enjoy seeing your springs unfold, and not feel sorry for myself while I wait for my turn. I look forward to seeing what you have blooming.
The days are getting longer. Yeah!
