Whilst the weather continues spoil my fun (how very dare it rain in Britain?! ;-)) it forces me to work on my assignments (a very good thing indeed). However, I thought might take a few minutes out and take you on a trip around the plants inside my house!
My camera still eludes me, (borrowers methinks), so I am using my boyfriend’s fancy-pants DXR thingyme jobber…. (all very technical you know).
I have been steadily growing my collection over the last few years….
My gerbera is flowering again. It was bought for me two years ago by a friend, and puts on a show every year 🙂
My Peace lily (Spathiphyllum) has a few browning leaves, which I must remove, but in general looks very healthy, and its leaves look lovely next to the gerbera.
On the kitchen windowsill my tomatoes are growing bigger each day, here are two of the mighty tumbling toms!
Here is the money plant (Crassula ovata) I was given as a cutting by a friend.
The Umbrella plant (Schefflera arboricola) was only about 15cm when I bought it….. just look at it now! It’s grown a little wonky, but I still love him.
One of the more peculiar plants I have is the parrot plant (Impatiens niamniamensis). It’s flowers look like little parrot beaks! Bought at a plant sale at the local botanical gardens, it was very small, but has since thrived and is now quite big. Both the parrot plant and umbrella tree will live outside for the summer when it warms up.
In growing news…. the sweet peas are looking happy
And the sweetcorn will need re-potting very soon (hurrah)!
I have more house plants to show you, but I think I may leave those for another rainy day!
Happy planting 🙂
