Friday's Flowers




I can't ressist buying flowers even if it's probably too early. These Marigolds and Pansies ( or maybe Violas) I got about a week ago. The Marigolds are doing fine outside but the Violas are not. I put them in small pots and had them on the kitchen window sill where they were not thriving.  Today I planted them outside where I hope they'll do better.



             My Christmas Cactus has a few flowers again!


          Leopard's Bane is an old fashioned flower that faithfully blooms every Spring.
 



I kept a couple of white geraniums through the Winter. They're getting very lanky and will soon go outside.

We're having a sunny day and temperatures of 20C (68F) . I spent as much time as I could outside because showers are predicted for tomorrow.

Hope you had a lovely Friday!!

  1. Your plants always look so bright and healthy. It is so hard to resist buying flowers to plant. Seem like we wait so long for spring. I'm glad you finally had a good day to get outside. We have rain coming in for the weekend. We really need the rain too!

  4. All so pretty, the pansy are my fave though, with their little "faces" 😊

    Hope you have a pleasant weekend. Rain on the way but that's ok.🌷🌼

  7. I buy things too early too! What color are your marigolds? Are they red? I think probably your violas will do better now they are outdoors. You must have a great green thumb! My Christmas Cactus has no more blooms!! Enjoy! Nancy

    1. Yes Nancy, the Marigolds are red. Aren't they cute? And, you're right about the Violas doing better outside. Already they have perked up.

  8. Oh so pretty and joyful looking flowers!!!!!

    Never heard the name Leopard's Bane. But I love the name! And it certainly even sounds old fashioned. :-)

    Not doing any of this yet, here. Old Timer's always said, "no planting, till Memorial Day".

    1. Leopard's Bane's official name I believe is Doronicum.

  9. I was at our favourite nursery yesterday, and spent about $60! The geraniums were on sale and I bought a few bedding plants and lots of tomato plants. Need to get to work transplanting the tomatoes. Wasn't it beautiful yesterday?:-) Got some garden cleaned out and am planting seeds this morning. I love those red marigolds!

    1. I am working on my wish list and will be going there one of these days. No doubt I'll be leaving some serious money there too.
