Bloom Day February 2010...

Thank you to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for hosting Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day! Here's what's blooming for me right now.

If anyone recognizes this plant, PLEASE leave me a comment and let me know what it is! A friend gave me this plant about 7 years ago when I lived in California. Right now the leaves and stems are rather elongated from the lack of sunlight in the house and it desperately needs to be divided, but it still blooms for me. I have no idea what it is, but I would LOVE to know!

This little corner holds most of what is blooming or colorful in my house at the moment. Of course, the poinsettias are always bright. I also have rooted coleus cuttings that are vibrant.



My peace lily just started blooming again.


{Spathiphyllum}

The last bloom of the indoor 'Tête-à-tête' daffodils.


{Narcissus 'Tête-à-tête'}

The African Violet plants (3 in one pot) that my sister-in-law gave me have some flowers: white with hints of lilac.


{Saintpaulia}

And blue with white edges.

On my table resides the most recent addition to my collection: a charming fairy primrose.


{Primula malacoides}

Outside, I am still waiting for my daphnes to bloom. I think they will open any day now and then I will have their wonderful fragrance. Yum!


{Daphne odora}

And, of course, some of the daffodils are almost starting to show their color!


{Narcissus}

Have a beautiful day!

I hope you get an answer to your mystery plant. The African Violets and primulas are lovely.

Happy Bloom Day

Nice that you're not letting the outside cold deter you. You've got a pretty thriving bit of the tropics going on indoors.

I know your mystery plant--I've seen it around in people's houseplant collections, and maybe even in a shady spot outdoors here--but sorry! it's not one of the plants I know the name of! I hope someone with a better memory can help you.

Very much enjoyed your colorful pics. This is my first time to participate in the GBBD but not the last. I'm glad it helped me find your blog. I will be following yours definitely.

If I had to guess, I would say your mystery plant is some type of aloe, but I'm afraid I don't know for certain. Everything looks lovely! Happy GBBD!

durn! I have that plant and I'm from California. It survives outdoors, although the leaves frizzle...And, I can't remember the name. I'm thinking toad something, spider something...If it comes to me, I'll come back and let you know!

I wish I could find just one green sprout in my garden, but nothing so far. Love you indoor plantings!
