Year End BloomsWednesday, December 30, 2009
This One-Day-Yellow Desert Rose gave me a big relief! I pruned off its only stem two months ago for more stems to grow out. It didn't. Instead one stem grew back but with several blooms.
My Flame Violet gave me a cheery year-end with its bright red flowers! I find that this plant really like the condition of the space below my porch. The leaves have never even withered since I planted its stolons in this small white pot.
Meanwhile, the red Gloxinia came with four buds only and three blossomed. The last one rotted as I over-watered the plant. Fortunately the plant did not die later. I hope it would 'resurrect' and give me more flowers next year.
Have a funfilled countdown to Year 2010!
