It's Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day... and while there's nothing yet worth showing out in the garden, I have quite a few things that are still in bloom in the house: The passalong abutilon from Kylee, abutilon megapotanicum and dragonwing begonia (both in "dormancy"--ha!) in the attic, and some nameless rescued orchids with tiny red flowers. The peace lily and the jewel orchid are still going strong, too.
An embarrassment of flowering riches, really, for Cleveland in March. And yet I'm most excited about two newly discovered buds. The amaryllis that I blogged out in my previous post, and this:
That soon-to-be beauty is a bud on my Paphiopedilum Canticle x Macabre Pie--last shown here, in February's foliage follow-up, with its dead previous bloom stalk still intact. I picked it up this fall on clearance, as the last flower on the previous stalk was fading, so I never expected rebloom so soon. I can't wait to see it!
For a proper showing of actual spring beauties across the northern hemisphere--and maybe even some "fall" jewels from our friends south of the equator--visit Carol's March GBBD Roundup post at May Dreams Gardens.
