Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day, February 2011

February’s Bloom Day brought to you by the hardworking Gesneriad family, as usual. There are no plants easier to get blooms year round than members of this family.

And as a bonus and hoping that these warmer temperatures and melting snow mean winter will soon be over. (I’ll be honest with you though, I can’t stand the smell of these things inside. This went to my dad’s room as soon as the stalk was fully open)

  1. Andrew, these are wonderful macro shots, so good I did not recognize the hyacinth at first.

    Wonderful, wonderful photos of these blooms!

    Streptocarpus brings back memories of a florist friend who used to start the dust-like seeds early so we’d have winter blooms. Great Bloom Day presentation. Thanks.

    I am inspired. Absolutely lovely. In the dead of winter; yet the blooms look like they are basking in some warm, sunny clime.

  5. Clearly you’ve got some things from Rob’s Violets. Is Goose Egg fragrant? I seem to remember that being one that was listed as fragrant…
