Garden Bloggers Bloom Day January 2019

Welcome to the 15th of January.  It's time for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day.

Where I live in upstate New York, winter couldn't make up its mind if it wanted to come or not.  Snow,  warm, rain, snow, repeat.  But winter has closed in.

I don't have much blooming in my house. This African violet, which I purchased in early December, is still going strong.

Who knows if this primrose will make it to spring?

My reliable Thanksgiving cactus still blooming.
And finally, my geraniums struggle, but gave me one bloom.

It's bitterly cold today where I live in zone 5b near Binghamton, New York but we can still have our flowers.

Join Carol at May Dreams Gardens and other bloggers the 15th of each month for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day.  What's blooming in your house or yard?

P.S. Today is the 100th anniversary of Boston's Great Molasses Flood.  More on that tomorrow.

Day 15 of the Ultimate Blog Challenge #blogboost


  1. My mother-in-law grew African Violets, but I have no luck with them. Thanks for bringing back warm memories of my dear husband's sweet mother.
    Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

  2. We'll take any blooms we can get in January, won't we? I love that cactus and the pretty little African violet.

  3. Happy GBBD! When it's too cold outside, you've still got blooms to enjoy in the house. Hooray.

  4. What a beautiful set of plants! I admire you for keeping them alive. I don't do so well at that. :)

  5. Pretty flowers. Only a couple months and it'll be spring again.

  6. And elderly family friend had such a beautiful collection of violets. They always survived beautifully.

  7. Well, now I know I need more flowers blooming in my home. I know about the Molasses Flood, of course, being a Bostonian, but had no idea it was the 100th anniversary!

  8. I like that sweet little Primrose.
