    Gardening 2017

    It's finally spring, and my hibernating plants have emerged from the basement.
    This is my pride and joy, Clivia miniata. This plant is approximately 20 years old, and it is getting prettier every year:

    The other one that is a favorite of mine, is the pitcher plant. It is carnivorous, and it stays outside year round. This one I had also for a very long time, about 15 years:

    Very pretty, both!

    Just spoke to Lady's Human - no garden there yet - still a mud patch!

    Those are great photos, I've not heard of either of those plants. But then, I don't do much with house plants or with plants we have to 'lift' in Autumn and keep inside for the Winter.

    So nice to see things in BLOOM!

    They're so pretty! I love the Clivia, used to have one myself years ago. The other one I'm not sure I know.

    The trees outside my windows are coming along well, all the buds are big and the leaves are about to appear. Wish they would stay like this a bit longer.

    The pitcher plant is actually hardy here in North Carolina. Even though it is in a pot, it handles even -15F well, so it stays put on my deck year round.
