Fun With Flowers
Today was a dreary rainy day and we're having a nasty round with a stomach bug going through the family. Not Fun! To cheer me up and brighten my day I decided to play around with some of the flowers that are blooming in the house.
The Christmas cactus has a beautiful bloom on it but it is difficult to see the details of the flower since the pretty side faces downward. I carefully laid the cactus on a blue piece of paper so I could see it and get a better picture. I love the colors of the blue, pink and green together. The blue paper really makes the flower pop.
The gerberas are so cheerful looking and have made me very happy. I'm so glad I went to the trouble to dig them up and bring them inside.
I had also brought in an African daisy that was in a container on the patio and today I noticed a couple of very small blooms on it. The plant looks healthy and green but the blooms are pretty small, it probably needs a little plant food. I don't usually fertilize plants in the yard and rarely think to give any to the inside plants, but I think these probably need a feeding.
