The Garden Indoors

The garden outside was soaked and steamy today after hours of torrential rain which, oddly but luckily, were accompanied by rising temperatures. Indoors, however, there are still quite a few plants as well, even though a number have already taken up their summer residency outdoors.

Phalaenopsis cv.

Phalaenopsis cv.

Florist's cyclamen (Cyclamen persicum) - not very impressive now, but it has been flowering with only brief interruptions for a good three years now

A rex begonia (Begonia rex-cultorum) doing well, at least for the time being

I just love having a smattering of flowers and foliage everywhere - these are on a shelf along the window in my room, so they are pretty much the first thing I see in the morning.


  1. Indoor plants doing well do bring some cheer. They do look happy there :)

  2. Hi, gardener!
    Nice orchids, I have 2 of them in my home. They finished blooming and now rest. Yours are wonderful!


Thanks for stopping by!
