GBBD in February


The winter continues, raining and the snow melts in my garden. What is blooming in my garden? Nothing outside. 
But indoors in my cold room that I call my “Winter garden” I enjoy my plants in bloom. I had a new orchid as a birthday gift in January and this beauty is still flowering. It has many buds that open every week. Another little orchid lives one year in my cold room and started to flower in February. It has soft yellow-lime color flowers, lovely! My both orchids are phalaenopsis.
Two weeks ago I'd been to Garden center and found some dry Amaryllis bulbs dumped in a big box 'For sale'. I bought one Amaryllis and I think it was thankful me having now three sprouts with four flowers each! These days my “Sweet Lilian” Amaryllis decorates the 'winter garden'.
The Poinsettia that was purchased for Christmas in mid-December is growing too and some new red leaves appeared. I love it and don't want to throw it now, I think to bring poinsettia in my garden greenhouse in spring.


I do hope to show you some garden flowers in March, when first vernal sprouts are seen.
Bye for now, have a nice week!

  1. Nadezda, Your flowers are so beautiful. I also have three orchids. They just started to bloom. I have in my house the little touches of spring: one hyacinth and two tulips. These little touches make a smile.
    Greetings :)

  6. That first orchid is a stunner and you seem to have got a bargain with the amarylis.The poinsettia will probably grow in your greenhouse but to get the red bracts again is trickier.

  8. Look at those amaryllis flowers--I am so jealous! I am still trying to figure out why mine won't bloom. Such lovely orchids; I think I am catching orchid fever this year:) Glad you can enjoy these indoor flowers, Nadezda; maybe by next month we'll both have something blooming outside.

    1. I think, Rose, your amaryllis doesn't bloom because you water it and the leaves grow instead of sprouts. I do hope we have warm and sunny days next month!

  10. Even if you can't show us flowers from your garden, you do have a lot of colour to show from the plants inside the house. Love every one of them!

  16. Very beautiful orchids, and the amaryllis was lovely too. I have just planted two amaryllis bulbs myself, hope to have them in flower for Easter, but I suspect they might flower too early as they are growing like mad :-)
    Have a great Sunday.

    1. Yes, amaryllis grows fast, and too much time is before Easter. You'll have beautiful flowers soon, Helene. Hope to see them in your post!

  17. You have beautiful flowers. The orchid has such great colors. I have two hyacinths in my kitchen and their scent is so sweet. I hope the weather in St Petersburg will be warmer when we come and visit this year.

    1. I can imagine how your kitchen is nice and sweet with blooming hyacinths, Vagabonde. The weather is mild and no frosty at all now.
      Thank you!
