With energy to walk around, the urge to document also returned. Though blooms are abundant outside, I wanted to share some of the flowers that kept me company inside while I lacked the energy to do much outside.
Ascofinetia Moonlight Fireflies is blooming with pale peach blooms. Starting out almost white, they age to the color below and have a delicate fragrance like, but unlike, lemon blossoms. Helpful description, no? Actually, a couple days after writing this post the fragrance has changed to a heady mix of vanilla, chocolate, citrus blooms, and less definable components I will simply describe as "orchid-y." This little plant is only about 4 inches tall. It's produced several offsets which I hope are approaching blooming size so I can get more of these delightful little flowers.
Streptocarpus 'Bristol's Waterbug' is not as blue as advertised (a familiar story) but still beautiful. This is its first bloom. Hopefully the first of many.
The candy corn flowers of Guzmania musaica are still going.
Renanetia Sunrise (a hybrid between Neofinetia falcata and Renanthera imshootiana bears fiery blooms atop a tall stem.
I'm happy both that I'm starting to feel better and that temperatures are supposed to moderate a bit as the week goes on. I can handle 80F, especially if the mornings are closed in by low clouds and fog as predicted.
