Blooming Tuesday


I love spring time in my garden. There are two plants that only bloom for me in the spring and I look forward to them every year. They are my Orchids and my Pink Amaryllis.
I have a pink Amaryllis plant that is blooming right now that has 12 flowers on it. I planted one bulb 3 years ago, it was a gift to me for my birthday from a friend.
They have the prettiest blooms on them. I planted this one under one of my rose bushes. My Rottweiler dog Buck smashed my last one, so I planted this one somewhere he won't lay!

My Cymbidium Orchids are also blooming. I keep them in pots in my patio outside my bedroom. They will last for weeks cut in a vase as long as you change the water frequently.

Oh Annie, It has been too long since I've visited your amazing blog. Those blue hydrangeas caught my eye- they are amaazing! Do you add the ammonium at any time? MY little hydrangea is just setting buds..is it too late? They were an amazing pink last year but I would love to see the blue this year. Happy Blooming Tuesday!
