On Tuesday, as the blooms of one of the last amaryllis to flower were fading, I gathered up all of the other pots of amaryllis to take back to my parents' house for the remainder of the winter. I also wanted to check on the citrus and fig trees, and see if there was any jasmine blooming that I could swap out for the amaryllis.
No jasmine this time, but there were many other things to see!
|Walking into the "Winter Garden" (the smallest bedroom) you can smell the citrus blooms immediately. This is on the little 'Ponderosa' lemon from Logee's.|
|This is a wee baby Meyer lemon. There are three on this plant so far!|
|The only thing close to ripe is this kumquat.|
|Fig number two! I think these are all growing on Chicago Hardy figs, but I need to get down and untangle the branches to know for sure.|
|And little (super blurry) fig number three! We'll have to wait and see how many more we get!|
|And as I was looking for a good swap out of plants for the amaryllis I saw two of the four agapanthus were preparing to bloom. I brought them home and can't wait to see their blue flowers brighten up these never ending winter days.|
