Garden Bloggers Bloom Day


I've been meaning to participate in Garden Bloggers Bloom Day for quite a while, but I always seem to forget. I'm hoping to make it a monthly habit this year. (To participate, not to forget.) My blooms are inside- an Amaryllis and my African Violet.

That's one of the most beautiful Amaryllis flowers I've ever seen Sarah - Happy Blooming Day!

I noticed the Memorial Day countdown - is that your usual last frost day?

Welcome to Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. I look forward to seeing more of your garden each month, as you continue to show us what is blooming in your garden.

Well Sarah, you made it this time! Love that amaryllis of yours, it's very pretty. Wish I could have african violets but my Vita (cat) destroys them all.

Happy blooms day!

frances- thanks for stopping by!
annie- our last frost date is a couple weeks earlier, but we always have a few late frosts. My family has planted on Memorial Day Weekend for as long as I can remember.
carol- thanks for stopping by, and I hope I remember to keep participating :)
yolanda- I like the amaryllis too. It's prettier than I expected. I'm sorry you can't grow African Violets - I've had a lot of trouble keeping them alive. This one is doing pretty good, though.

Hi Sarah,

Your Amaryllis is quite a beauty. I haven't seen one with so many blooms. Your African violet is really thriving.

Happy GBBD to you! Have a good weekend!

Sarah said...

kate- I've never seen one with so many blooms either. I think there are 4 now, and a fifth bud.
Thanks for stopping by!

Your amaryllis flowers are amazing. I love the African violet, too - they're one of my favorite indoor plants.

Happy (belated) Bloom Day!

Christa-I like African Violets too. I've always had trouble keeping them alive, though. This one may be approaching a record. :)
