    DH likes to bring plants into house and try to keep something blooming all winter. He stuck a fuchsia and a cactus in the same pot. We now have blooms on both. I love having them over my sink to enjoy. kitchen flowers 2018-19 (1).jpg kitchen flowers 2018-19 (2).jpg kitchen flowers 2018-19 (3).jpg

    That is LOVELY.
    I have mixed pots too - by accident. Wandering Jew wandered into EVERYTHING on the back porch. LOL

    teg bouganvelia.jpg My Bougainvillea has outdone itself this winter. I cannot even get a photo to do it justice. It brings me joy every time I look at it in these frigid days. Long lasting blooms.

    :ep
    Those are BEAUTIFUL!!! I consider it a great accomplishment if I can keep from killing the spider plants and a few assorted other green potted things while they are inside for the winter. I don't think I've EVER had something that lovely in the house!
    :love

    Growing a flowering plant during the winter surely helps dispel the winter doldrums somewhat. My fragrant carnation has about a dozen buds ready to open and the zinnia has about the same number. Also, I have two orchids in spike and they probably will last until the arrival of spring.
