Surprise, Surprise!!Monday, January 24, 2011
Currently I am enjoying some surprising blooms. The Chrysanthemum plant, bought before the New Year is slowly fading and its mild scent is gone. But I am delighted to see that its faded colour (light purple) is just as gorgeous as the original burgundy :-)
My Cyclamen is reblooming after its first flush of blooms last month...
I have been hiding my Kaempferia behind some pots and hoping to see the leaf's beautiful patterns but instead, the plant sends out flowers one after another :-)
I am pleasantly surprised by the Clematis Avant-Garde also... the dainty blooms are flowering for the second time. They look wonderful!
Out in the open, the Desert Rose is flowering as well! It has been not so sunny these days though.
I just love the long staying Pentas, Bunny Rabbit and China Aster flowers. They look really pretty during sunny days.
And the biggest surprise is served by my dear Impatiens... I found out that I have propagated the wrong plant when the bloom appeared! I had actually taken the cutting of the dwarf variety instead. The normal size one was rotting away, hence I searched for a good cutting to root. And now I realised I took cutting from the wrong plant which was the dwarf one planted in the same pot. Anyway the cutting rooted only last month and the little plant is flowering now...
It is a delight to be surprised by our plants, isn't it?
