Welcome to What's Blooming Now, join other blogs from around the world on Carol's blog, May Dream Gardens, for GBBD. I actually found a couple of flowers blooming outdoors. I've been waiting years for my 2 Camellia sasanqua varieties to bloom in the winter like they are supposed to. I'm still waiting on Yuletide, but there were a couple of blooms on Apple Blossom, which I didn't catch until this one was overblown-
Down in Portland near the river and up in Seattle near the Sound, roses can practically bloom all winter, but here not so much, but a blossom is still lingering on my personal Queen of the Roses, Zephirine Drouhin.
But the flowers that are the cheeriest now are indoors. My favorite little geranium was divided into 3 little plants that have bloomed nearly continually, here is the current one blooming for the second time under lights at night-
And charmingly in the daytime under natural light, a delight while I'm washing dishes-
And again, looking ethereal-
My Christmas cactus was a little early, I like the color of the flowers, a little closer to red than my even earlier one.
Finally, I was gifted with the ubiquitous flower of the season, but admittedly a nice red-
I hope you have some flowers cheering up your winter. Happy Holidays!
