This blog is about gardening and nature, two subjects that are inherently intertwined. I live outside of Boston (on the edge of an urban area) and near the ocean (on the edge of the land) and my property abuts a city owned natural area (on the edge of nature) what better name?

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.
