Welcoming December....With A Few Blooms...




Took these over the last few days...

She finally bloomed!!

Loving my Jade plant!! 

                                               ***********

Hope you all had a great day...

Lousy weather here...dark...cold...rainy...foggy!!

Tree is in the hallway...warming up!!

Brought up a few decorations...

Think I will really try for "less is more" this year....

I say that every year!!

Enjoy your evening...

                         Cheers!  :o)

    1. Hi Eddie....
      Love this plant....
      Thanks...picking new headers can be tedious work!
      Didn't want to use a snowy pic....as we have no snow!
      You are a good outdoor gardener,though.....right?

    2. Not a bad outdoor gardener but it must be warm and inviting . . . . as long as my hands are warm I am ok but when they are cold I just go into first gear and want to hibernate . . . . lol. My genes tell me I should be living in a warmer climate . . . I would be totally useless in Canada in the winter unless sat near a furnace . . . :)

    3. Oh you would be fine in Canada...
      It is a way of life here...as I assume the British weather is to you!!
      We all have furnaces...don't worry!!

  11. My friend Joseph also has a jade that blooms but I gather from comments here and on his page that no one else does! He maintains that it's because he puts it outside in the summer. He's also the one who has the night-blooming cereus which I think I told you about.
    Love your new header!

    1. Mine goes outside too! I had mentioned before,that I thought this might be why....
      I had more blooms last year...not so many this year...very tiny and delicate!
      Thanks about the header....appreciate it!

  12. Your jade plant is gorgeous. I wonder if mine at the lake is still alive. I'm not sure if my neighbor continued to water it.

    Rain and cold here, too. I'm going to get over the latest bug and get out tomorrow. I hate being cooped up!

  13. What a treat . . . Jade plant in flower!
    Happy December days . . .
    Rainy drizzle here too . . .
    Would love a blizzard . . .
    Instead . . . A week of warmth and sun predicted!
    (I'd rather that then drizzle!)
