Look at how big it’s getting!!! Monster-Sized Blooms!
Finishing up my aunt’s garden for the 4th of July Party! I’m staining the wagon wheel planter this year, it’s starting to rot a little.
Here are the rest of my plants. If you look closely at the violets, you will see there are actually two purple/white plants! I thought I only had one!
Here’s an update on some of the plants in the patio! The GLOXINIA is blooming finally! Look how awesome it is!
THE GLOXINIA BLOOM BEGINS TO OPEN!!! STAY TUNED!!
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.
Guess Who? Yep just the african violet colony! Still getting more blooms! And I discovered I actually have 2 purple/white plants! They just never bloomed at the same time! :)
Got my first radish!!! We picked a bowl of them. Ended up with about 10-15. A lot of the plants don’t have anything on them yet. They’re going to stay out a while to see if anything happens.
Everything else is growing well too!! We have a few beets, onions, Kohlrabies, and lots of beans! YAY!
I know this is like the millionth picture of African violets but can you blame me?!
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.
