Bloom Day February 2013

A hurried and brief post for bloom day this month.  So much to do yet in the garden before spring arrives, and Spring appears to be knocking at the door already.  Most of the garden is roses and the roses are now mostly groups of bare green sticks.  Some of the Aloes are finished, and some are just starting to send up their blooms.  I cut back 'Sombreuil' in November so her draping canes wouldn't grab anyone, which made her bloom again.

The flowers of Morocco Daisy are small, but the patch is nearly 3' (90 cm) across.

And the koi are bigger.  The way they are eating, they will be bigger yet.  Those brown dots are koi food.

Happy Bloom Day!  As always, thanks to May Dreams Garden Blog for hosting this fun meme!

  1. Lovely flowers, the daisies look so bright, the Big Aloe Marlothii is beautiful, I also like the plant behind it with the greenish orange foliage. Lovely variegated foliage on liliputana and those koi look very healthy.

  3. What wonderful detail on the Senecio rowleyana. It's blooms like that that make me think that the bees get quite a beautiful show, going from flower to flower! Sombreuil is just gorgeous, and I love your patch of daisies. Your koi look very happy - and hungry! :)

  5. The Senecio rowleyana blossoms smell so good . . . I wish we could take smellograms and share them on the internt.

  6. That image of Aloe marlothii is wonderful backed by what appears to be Euphorbia tirucalli 'Sticks on Fire'. Orange and green is a stellar combo. The koi look dangerously voracious!
