Not another Bloom Day…and you’ve got nuthin’
Wait, I got it! Why don’t you show them your nerines?*
Let’s see what else we’ve got…
Evie, those aren’t blooms!
I better take over. Bloom on the snaky succulent Senecio anteuphorbium
Oh, that was exciting…except not really. At least the variegated manihot has some personality.

Salvia ‘Love & Wishes’ was planted mid-summer.
Wow, now you’re really reaching. Might as well show the nerines again.
I know…those orange bobbles!
The annual Emilia javanica ‘Irish Poet’ still looking as fresh as summer.

*Note to Grace: Remember when finding new plant blogs was almost as exciting as receiving plants in the mail? Well, that’s how I felt when I discovered Matt Mathus’ blog Growing With Plants. In one of his many erudite posts, about five paragraphs deep into a dissertation on his gorgeous nerines, he mentioned that he had lots of extra bulbs, and if anyone wanted any, to let him know. That was probably my first experience of the interwebs made real, when it ceased being an abstraction and became peopled with like-minded sorts full of curiosity and generosity, like Nan Ondra who gave me the emilia seeds, and you too, for instance. And that’s the little story I promised you about how I came to have a pot of nerines.
