A Few Pretty Bloomers....








I am lucky enough to have a few pretty bloomers inside...
3 beautiful African Violets...and 3 Cyclamens...only 1 pictured here...
They certainly do make you feel cheery, as the sun shines on them...
You have anything blooming indoors right now???
Do they put a smile on your face??? 
Let's hope so...

Hope you are all having a great day...
I drove out to feed my daughters cats...went thru a lot of blowing snow!!
Very blustery and cold today...
Oh well...as they say...

                                    It is January!!

Picked up a rotiserrie chicken at Costco...
Will add some fries...I know..I know...I shouldn't...but I will!!
And a greek salad...sound good?

                                  Enjoy your evening....

                                    Cheers!   :o)

  2. I looked for an African Violet at the grocery today but they didn't have any.
    My yellow begonia is still blooming, though! My cyclamen is thinking about it...
    tiny sprouts!

    Freezing cold here today but bright sun. It was actually enjoyable being out...no wind,
    which made a huge difference!

  4. I don't have any inside flower blooms, but I do have a cheery little grandson.
    My inside plants are jades and wandering jews.
    And of course, I have those crazy Naughties to keep me smiling too.

  5. I don't have a great track record with plants so don't tend to have them. I always give cyclamen to my Mon. We both love them and they last a long time. Well for her they do! Grin.
    Dinner sounds great! Enjoy.
