Also a few plants from our back yard. The easter lily is blooming FINALLY. Dad got a few new plants for fathers day too. The yellow one is a coreopsis which is the same as I had won last year at our church festival but it never came back :( The purple one I’m not sure of the name.

I went to an estate auction today. Among many other things I got a box with all these pots in it for $1!!! WHAT A STEAL!!! When I looked closer, I found out the blue and green ones are actually African Violet pots!!! They are made up of 2 pots the inner one is not glazed to allow water to flow through its walls to keep the soil moist. HOW FREAKING AWESOME IS THAT?! 

I HAVE 3 varieties of violets!!! I’m looking to downsize because I have so many of the same kind so I think I’ll propagate one of each variety in these pots if they work and keep one pot with all 3 in them in case something happens to one of them. 

My gloxinia likes its fancy new pot too.

What made these violets take off like this? The solid purple bunch was just propagated last summer! Maybe it’s the violet food… or maybe it’s because I am the african violet Master! MuaHAHAHA! But seriously…

You can see the pink violets new pot in the last picture. Hope the new window location will do it good.

Out of all the places for a mole to dig… it has to be under the tiny seedling of my favorite plant - the arizon sun =(  I got the seeds from my aunt’s plant last fall.
