Winter still has a good hold on my Connecticut garden, allowing only brief hints of temperatures and blooms to come. So, instead of showing the one or two crocus buds or the green shoots of the Tete-a-tetes shyly peeking through the soil, I’m focusing on indoor beauties for this Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day.
A lovely deep maroon cyclamen has greeted me each morning for the last couple of months. Lately it’s been joined by a small echeveria in bloom. Individually these two houseplants hold their own. Together they form a wonderful contrast in leaf and blossom shape, color, and form.
Close up views show the delicacy of the echeveria bloom.
I’m anxious for spring weather to replace winter’s cold, and I will thoroughly enjoy scrolling through the photos many other gardeners share at May Dreams Gardens this Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day. It must be warmer somewhere!
But while I wait … impatiently at times … for spring’s warmth and the burst of bloom that will emerge from the ground, I’ll take time to enjoy the simple beauty of this indoor plant combination.
