From the Garden Again

Look at these beautiful miniature cyclamen...Fred was given some in a pot for his birthday or something a year or so ago. When they finished flowering in the pot, he put them in the garden. Aren't they lovely?
These are the orchids I mentioned in an earlier post. I put a up photo of a single flower...but here are a bunch of them...actually, that's only part of all the flowers that are out. Unfortunately, I couldn't get them all in without losing the close up.

These kind of flowers can most only be grown indoors in Norway - lucky you :-)

Beautiful flowers. We have an orchid here, it's a bit of a challenge to care for it - but a worth the effort :)

Hello dear Robyn:-)

Just got back from visiting my sons and now trying to catch up with everybody!

Such gorgeous flowers! I so wish we could grow orchids here...well I guess I could buy one for inside the house but it just wouldn't be the same! lol

Sounds like a fun evening you had around the fire the other day. I love doing that but unfortunately haven't yet this summer. Hard to believe we're in August already, our summer will be over before we know it and your winter will be over with:-) xoxo

Wonderful flowers. The fact flowers you don't expect to pop up the next year really does come to life again is fascinating and exiting. Positive surprises are a gift for all that like to do Gardening.

Are you able to grow orchid's outside year round? I couldnt here because it gets too cold.
