EASY PLANT

ANTHURIUM, also called flamingoplant

As the weather keeps on being wet and windy I can’t start gardening now but I want to start as soon as possible.

So here is another indoor plant, Anthurium (flamingo plant) pretty and easy to keep as long as it doesn’t get direct sun, light : yes, sun : no. And it wants to be watered weekly. They come in all colours and can become quite big with a bit of tlc. And you can use the flowers and leafs for flower arrangements.

Have a great weekend !!

EUPHORBIA SPECIES

As it is not much fun to be out in the garden at the moment I’ll show you one of my favorite indoor plants. We do have blooms in the garden but it is wet and windy and cold at the moment.

This  one is a member of the huge EUPHORBIA family, some come with leafs, others with spines and some even have both leafs and spines. I am the proud owner of several euphorbia spieces, in my home and in my garden . They all get tiny yellow flowers. And they bloom for a long time.

I hope you are all ok and having fun. Take care and thanks for visiting.

SOFT WET WINTER

We are having a soft wet Winter this time, we had a few mild frosty nights but that’s all so far, for tomorrow a severe storm is comming our way with lots of rain and very strong winds.

There are lots of plants budding as they think it’s Spring.

THIS SKIMMIA (SKIMMIA KEW GREEN) WILL SOON OPEN IT’S BUDS, AL LOT EARLIER THAN USUAL
AND THIS PASSIONFLOWER PLANT NORMALLY LOOSES MOST OF IT’S LEAFS IN WINTER BUT NOW IT STAYED TOTALLY GREEN AND IT IS ALREADY GETTING NEW LEAFS
MY CORCKSCREW HAZEL (CORYLUS AVELLANA “CONTORTA”) IS COMPLETELY OVERGROWN BY ANOTHER PASSIONFLOWER AT THE MOMENT
