Monday-Tuesday

The Christmas/Lenten Rose is getting closer to blooming.
AND...The Obedient Plant is trying to bloom. I told it, "Nope. Way to early." Now we'll see if it's really obedient and pays attention.
AND...

  1. Love your Lenten Rose. Obedient Plants are about as obedient as cats in my experience. Good luck. And is that an acquilegia in the background? I love them.
    As I do the duck and his friend.
    Good luck to all those eligible to enter the contest.

    1. I enjoy the Lenten Roses because they bloom when the landscape is barren and in need of color.
      That's the tab for an aquilegia. So far their response to their living surroundings is, I'd rather die that live in your garden. Sigh.

  3. If it is the same plant we call it Winter Rose as well Christmas Rose because of course it does not flower here at Christmas. Aka Helleborus, or something like that.

  5. Hi Sandra - love the hellebores ... they are gorgeous; it was such fun finding an Obedient Plant when I visited Abkhazi Gardens in Victoria, on Vancouver Island ... amazing to see: I hope it knows its place til the time to flower comes along?! Cheers Hilary

  9. Your Lenten rose is so pretty. Is that an indoor or outdoor plant? I've never heard of the obedient plant so I hope you take pictures when it does blooom. I also enjoyed the duck and dog video. If only humans could learn from animals. Enjoy your day.

    1. It's outdoor. It likes cool to cold weather, wilts in the heat.
      The duck and dog are quite the duo aren't they?
      You enjoy your day too my calligrapher friend.

  12. I hope your plant pays attention. Nothing in my yard is even thinking about getting out in the air. Nothing in the house, either.

  16. Such a beautiful Lenten Rose! And I hope the Obedient Plant ultimately listens to you, haha.

  17. can the rose stay inside? not really sure why I asked other than curiosity, as I can't even have fake inside without the cats bothering.. and every real plant I have is at work; what I'm gonna do with em if I retire is anyone's guess...

    happy birthday allison ! ♫♪
