It’s been a cool day here in Nova Scotia and there’s not much growing on the balcony just yet, except for this volunteer sunflower. :) It’s sprouting a second set of leaves, despite the coolish, dull day. The surrounding trees, especially the poplars and birches, are awash with that beautiful, spring green. The grass is ready to be mowed and is already dotted with dandelions. I do love spring!
Inside, the Kalanchoe has decided to bloom again, meagre though the blooms may be. I’m not sure how it managed as the plant doesn’t look all that healthy. I moved it into a much brighter spot — perhaps the extra light will do the trick.
My one and only moth orchid is still in bloom! Several of you told me I’d be surprised at how long the blooms last, and you weren’t kidding. It’s been almost two months now. I have a bad case of Orchid Greed now, and would love to have some more!
I’m getting impatient to plant some balcony containers, but cool days like this remind me that there’s no rush. My daughter, working in Alberta for the summer, just sent me a text message saying it was snowing where she is! So, I guess I won’t complain!
