A little about me. I am a recent college graduate, majoring in horticulture, who has moved three times in the past year and a half, so unfortunately I do not have much of an outdoor garden. Why so many moves? Right after college I did two internships before settling into my current job, all three in different states, and my current living situation is not conducive to an outdoor, in-the-ground garden. So until I have my outdoor garden, my houseplants will be the stars of the show, along with pictures of gardens and nurseries that I visit. I will also be writing about plants that I would like to grow and ideas that catch my attention.
As I am about to head off to work, this short post will have to do for now. I'll leave off with something to look at until I can make another post. The impetus that inspired me to finally start the blog I had been thinking of for some time now, and the newest addition to my indoor garden, Guzmania musaica.
Forgive me my quick snap shots. I promise I take nice pictures too!
|First off a view of one of my plant shelves. The guzmania is the big one with the orange mace-like inflorescence.|
|A closer view of that medieval flower spike. Beautiful, especially on a cold winter day, but not the star attraction of this bromeliad.|
|A close up of the mosaic pattern on the leaves. The undersides are purple and the tops are green.|
And now I'm late for work. Until next time...
