Amaryllis with seeds

My windowsill Minerva amaryllis bloomed earlier. Now a second bloom is happening, and the first bloom actually set seed! Below is a view of the dark brown seed and a second, unripe pod behind it.

Drumstick flower

I love these little yellow balls, craspedia globosa or drumstick flower. The Northwest Flower & Garden #NWFGS show never ceases to delight.

Adorable small yellow ball flowers. You can grow them from seed!

Haemanthus albiflos

I call this the Dr. Seuss plant because it looks so wacky. Checking google images, I see it is sometimes called paintbrush lily. The flower is about 1.5 or 2 inches. It is a bulb related to amaryllis. Notice the tiny leaves in the dirt. Last year it set a few seeds, and I got one to grow!

A year of memories

I have posted about this Memory Jar before, but here it is again. A wonderful idea for your 2019 New Year!

Starting January 1, write good things that happen to you on little pieces of paper.

• Surprise gifts
• Accomplished goals
• The beauty of nature
• “LOL” moments
• Memories worth saving
• Daily blessings

Then on Dec. 31, open the jar and read all the amazing things that happened to you this year.

Create a memory jar for the year. So fun to read at the end of the year!

Poinsettias aren’t the only kind of Christmas flower. Behold the red hibiscus, as big as your hand.

Bougainvillea indoors

I have a standard bougainvillea plant (a little tree) that lives on my patio in the summer and indoors with the houseplants when it gets cold. It loves the warm indoors temps, the big sunny south-facing window, and the extra plant food. Flowers!

Teensy orchids

I know I’ve been using such technical plant names, but I can never remember the real names. Anyway, this stalk that looks like fountain grass is really little bitty orchids! So saith the Volunteer Park Conservatory, and they should know.

Fancy mum leaves

“Fancy” is not a very technical description, but I’ve never seen chrysanthemum leaves with a white border like this. Pretty showy!
