Garden Bloggers Bloom Day January 2018

What a January it has been, in my zone 5b garden and home in upstate New York, near Binghamton.

Some of the plants I brought in when frost beckoned are still going, such as this pink begonia.

Or this Calibrachoa.

As far as houseplants, about all I have are my Thanksgiving cacti, still going strong.

For a few days, we had been fooled by Mother Nature.  But the ice and snow and soon to be below zero temperatures are back.

Would you like to see my front yard?

And here's my back yard.

My garden sleeps on.

If you are looking for Music Moves Me, I will be participating next Monday.   But in the meantime, if you are looking for a song mentioning colors and flowers, how about this - Roses are Red, as sung by Bobby Vinton.

Ah, summer........

Thank you again for Carol at May Dreams Gardens for hosting this monthly meme.  Come join us every 15th of the month to show what is blooming in our yards and homes.


  1. Glad you brought your flowers in. You can enjoy the colors- in contrast to the sea of white outdoors.

  2. Always good to have houseplants - love the Cactus!
    Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

  3. Excellent musical choice. Makes me think spring will come, and we will see flowers outside again.

  4. That is a lot of white stuff! I moved in a pepper plant that the nurseryman said will winter over indoors. No leaves or peppers on it but it hasn't died yet so will see if it makes it this spring when I move it back outside. Whew, glad you had one song. I look forward to them on Mondays!

  5. Your flowers are beautiful - I'm truly jealous of your green thumb...I've never mastered it.

  6. I don't have indoor plants due to my allergies, but our gardens were still blooming before the ice arrived last week. We're working on redoing our backyard.

  7. It's nice to see blooms of any kind in mid-January! Happy Bloom Day.

  8. Ah, winter rearing it's head again. Spring will be here soon enough...
