Roses 'Confetti' and Mandarin Orange Sunblaze were blooming , but I cut them
all for my Christmas table. Pruning has started, bare roots are in stores.
Weather is cloudy, cold, waiting for a rain, which we need.
Happy Winter, we have about 1 minute more of daylight.

Well, I'd expect that from someone named "Randy."
What? No Grandma's bloomers?
Currently blooming: Christmas Cactus, variegated Mother-In-Law tongue,
African violets, Crown-of-Thorns, and my coleus cuttings

Fall was longer and wetter than normal around here and I had Blue Egnima
blooming past Thanksgiving and into December! There were some forsythia's
that were popping a few stray kernels of buttery yellow to tease those of us
who still appreciate it's overstated beauty. And thankfully, only the
muscari and Dutch iris threw it's fall foliage.
The only thing that is blooming right now is my Crown of Thorns Euphorbia's
(I have a red flowered one, a purple, and a cream flowered variety).
The seemingly empty pot of soil that houses the now slumbering Blood lilies
will waken soon enough when I start to water them more. Right now they get
spare moisture to keep them sleeping for two more months.
The "Cherokee Pipe" houseplant I've had for over a decade now and falsely
called pipe plant, is actually commonly called Basket plant and is in fact
Callisia fragrans! It's making bloom spikes at the moment. I have a sedum
that started blooming a few weeks ago that has little creamy bells on
twisted stems hanging in the south window of the crowded den where I house
some of the cacti and succulents to suffer horribly in my over dry, warm
house in winter. (Next year I have to make a spot in the cold tool room with
a grow light so they'll be cold but not freeze and go dormant so they'll
bloom for me come true spring!)
Thanks for sharing your annual bloomer's!
