GBBD November 15, 2013
Flowers rejoice when night is done,
Lift their heads to greet the sun;
Sweetest looks and odours raise,
In a silent hymn of praise.
HENRY VAN DYKE, "Matins"
There really isn't much left outside so today, if you don't mind, I'm going to take you indoors.
These plants come inside for the winter and look lovely in "my" room. The room is tiny but it has everything I need....a couch and coffee table, small tv, and a place in the windows for the plants. I have my quiet time here, talk on the phone and get to read and watch tv shows that Andy can't quite tolerate. The windows face South.
The Cactus have a mind of their own. They bloom as soon as I bring them inside. Lovely color in a world becoming dormant.....
Margie, my neighbor who moved, gifted me with this Begonia. It's a cutting from a plant that originally belonged to her grandmother.
My other Christmas Cactus. It's actually a lot redder than the camera captured. Many Thanks to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for sponsoring GBBD. Pay her a visit. http://www.maydreamsgardens.com/
Today I'm grateful for my little house and all the earthly treasures God has provided. Happy Gardening, Flower Freak
