Here is my blooming cactus. As you can see, it is getting to be quite a size and the flowers are hot pink. They are very like straw flowers.
Here is a picture of my flowering maple. I brought it in from the garden last fall and it blooms continuously. I will be putting it back in the garden once all risk of frost is past.
Here are three little Jumping Jack Pansies I picked in the back garden yesterday. They are always the first flowers to bloom in spring and continue to bloom way past the frost in the fall.
This last picture is of my garden hideaway. To the right is where the back flower bed is. I sit out here and read a book, enjoy a cup of hot tea of iced tea and watch the butterflies and hummingbirds flit through the garden. The large flower pot with the frame trellis is where I grow some sweet peas to sweeten the air.
