Bloom Day January..Slim Pickins

Ongoing garden-reno upheavals and no rain have plunged this gardener into a nearly bloomless state. This container planting features the ubiquitous Stock and is the lone ranger in bloom land. Much bud-forming has been noted and it is hoped February will bring both rain and flowers.



Visit Carol our hostess at May Dreams Gardens to see some actual flora-bundance .

  1. Życzę, żeby luty był taki jakiego potrzebują rośliny i by kwiaty pięknie kwitły. Zdjęcie kwiatu jest bardzo ładne. Pozdrawiam.
    I hope that February was so they need the plants and flowers that bloomed beautifully. Photo of flower is very pretty. Yours.

    1. Rain finally came to the party here Denise, with more on the way. Yes indeed to that giant bouquet-I can't tell you how many times I've tried to grow the long stemmed (Imperial Giant I think) stock, only to fail.puny plants, puny blooms, plagues of aphids.How can stock be hard to grow ?

  4. I adore Stock but never plant it. The 6-pax from the big box always disappoint.
