Today I had a great time at the orchid show—photos here—and plan a post that may even give some helpful information about them, but while that’s percolating, here are some random houseplant shots. I’m trying to use the tulips and hyacinths throughout the house, rather than keep them cooped up in the plant room.
There are still double tulips to come, and even some amaryllis—the Johnny-come-lately ones I keep as houseplants, and don’t bother giving a period of dormancy. These tulips are Negritas. If all goes as planned, I will have several big pots of them outside, as well as Amazone, Yellow Mountain, Orange Princess, and Black Hero, in April and May. Just saying that makes me feel better about winter.
