Houseplant Bloggers Bloom Day

We still have nearly two feet of snow on the ground here on the Edge.  So once again I bring you Houseplant Bloggers Bloom Day.  I'm hoping that some of the crocus I planted in my hell strip will be ready for photographing for next month's Garden Blogger Bloom Day.

What do you think my odd are?

I still have four nice cyclamen in full bloom (most of them are in my office at work).

My rose begonia did not do as well this year as last.  This is the only one I still have and it's clearly infested with something.

At least I have this spectacular Anthuirum (Anthruium cheapus)

Almost....  (Citus X meyeri, Meyer's lemon)

My forced bulbs are not producing much of a show yet.  I did start them late but even so!  This hyacinth is the only one that has produced any blooms and they aren't very impressive.  They did produce a nice fragrance, which is really appreciated since I haven't been able to open the windows for months.

Thanks to Carol at May Dreams for this meme.


  1. You do have the snow! Lucky your pretty blooms are snug inside. Here, snow too. Happy GBBD.

  2. Great to read your comments from snowy MA. I am in snow-covered Pennsylvania, but managed to find some flowers because it went up to 60 degrees yesterday!!! Happy GBBD, Carolyn

  3. I have been surprised that your part of the state has gotten at least as much snow and ice as we have up in the western hills. You've managed a great blooming array, even so.

  4. All I can think of is how much mud will be leftover when the snow melt. We have quite a bit in Indiana too, but maybe blooms next month? You seem to have better luck with houseplants than I do...though I give it my best shot! haha!

  5. We'll take blooms wherever we can get them in February! Yours are lovely.

  6. That's a LOT of snow! I like your little bird statue.

  7. Having any winter blooms is a plus. Your snow has sure been worse than mine. Enjoyed the photos.
