Gosh, it has been hot today, very summery weather for us, but now it has gone quite black.
When I have been getting my washing in over the last few days I have noticed the plants coming into flower, especially the cacti so I thought I would take some pics to show you all.
I love this one, it is getting some lovely orange flowers on.
All these first 3 pictures started out as tiny ones bought for 60 cents and in pots no bigger than 3" diameter, and now they are in 6" pots.
I think the little one looks like a frog!!
This is how I plant the tiny ones I buy. I put three in a window box, these are about 15" long. Then in the spring I transfer them to individual pots and they go up on the roof.
These three need to be repotted this week and then I can buy some more to put in, and then the window boxes go outside our kitchen window.
This is a gorgeous Bougainvillea (don't know if that is how it is spelt). It has lovely and orange and pink flowers on at the moment but I think they will be changing to all pink soon.
This is a beautiful Miniature carnation in a lovely shade of peach with a red edge.
It very often looks like it is going to die off and then comes back to life.
It is looking quite healthy at the moment.
On to my card for today. As the image is watering the flowers in the plant pots, I thought is apt to show this one with the pics of my plants.
It is a LOTV topper, which I think is so cute. Cheery Lynn roses die, a doily, ribbon, buttons (these lilac ones were from my Mums old button tin), a pin with a pearl head and I put a round blue bead on and a white square bead. Round sentiment stuck on some silvery material.
