(Still!)

Thanks to Carol over at May Dreams Gardens for encouraging us to post photos of what’s blooming in and around our houses on the 15thish of each month. Check out her blog for more pretty flowers.

If you don’t have a blog but would still like to share your flower photos, you can email them to me. Recently I’ve been posting them the day after my own, but tomorrow I have an all-new Ask the Experts scheduled. So let’s aim for Tuesday to publish them instead, our August Garden Nonbloggers’ Bloom Day. That will give you the weekend to shoot photos and get them to me. You can also post them on my facebook wall.

I’ll be back tomorrow with the Experts. Hope to see you here!

Let’s see what’s blooming in and around the house:

We have been getting some rain in Albuquerque, which is great. It’s much appreciated. The flowers in the orange container love it, as do the tomatoes.

One side note…I planted marigolds in all the containers to ward off pests, but something ate the marigolds in the purple container. Stripped them of all their leaves. Not sure who did that but I thought it was amusing. Whoever it was left the marigolds in the other containers alone. For now. I’ll be keeping my eye on them!

Inside, the Chlorophytums (Spider plants) bloom nonstop:

Lady Evermore, an Aeschynanthus, also blooms:

Because I’m a neatfreak…

This crap had to go on a recent warm afternoon.

Most of it, anyway. The Gaillardia still had an awful lot of green for a plant that was supposedly zapped by the frost:

Most of the flowers were frost-bitten but surprisingly there were lots of new flower buds. Apparently the Blanket Flowers aren’t ready for dormancy.

There were other surprises, too.

Like the sickly parsley plants I found once I cleared out the basil:

It’s hard to believe they could hold on in the shadow of the monster basil. But they did.

So did these succulents I found when I cleared out the Portulaca:

Surprise! I did not expect to find those.

Cleaning out garden clutter is always a lot of work, but it’s worth it.

Come spring, I’ll be glad I got the hard work out of the way.

What about you? Have you cleaned up your garden yet, or are you going to wait until spring?

I’ll be back manana, hope to see you here.

As if this blog wasn’t already crammed with enough flower photos, here are some more!

Yay for beautiful flowers!

I love my back door container garden. The containers are a lot of work, but worth the abundant rewards. Blooming is Gaillardia ‘Blanket Flower’, Portulaca, Dimorphotheca (or Osteospermum), Bougainvillea, Petunias and Miss Mimosa, the Mimosa pudica ‘Sensitive Plant’.

(The E is for my first name, Elise.)

Inside, my Chlorophytum comosum, Nel, commonly known as a ‘Spider Plant’, has been blooming consistently for months:

And so has Sweetie, a Euphorbia milii:

And so has Lady Evermore, an Aeschynanthus:

An explosion of blooms – I love it!

Special thanks to Carol over at May Dreams Gardens for suggesting we post photos of what’s blooming in and around the house on the 15thish of each month. Check out her site to see flower photos from all over the world.

What’s blooming at your casa?

I’ll be back manana, hope to see you here.

What is it about summer flowers?

I just love them! I love summertime!

Indoors, Nel, a Chlorophytum comosum, ‘Spider Plant’ is blooming like crazy:

So is Lady Evermore, an Aeschynanthus:

And the ever-blooming Sweetie, a Euphorbia milii, ‘Crown of Thorns Plant’:

Thanks to Carol over at May Dreams Gardens for suggesting we post photos of what’s blooming in and around our casas, on the 15thish each month.

I’ll be back on Monday, hope to see you here.

I’ll take any excuse to post photos of pretty flowers.

About Me

Hi! My name is Liza. Welcome to my blog and thanks for visiting! I'm a Midwestern gal now living in Arizona, after many years of living in and owning a plant care business in New Mexico.

Plants are living, breathing creatures, and if they're indoor plants, they are 100% dependent on human care. They cannot water themselves.

I can beautify your home, office, or patio with plants and flowers. I have 13 years of experience growing plants, and friendships.

Please let me know if you have questions or if you would like help with your plants or garden. You can reach me at lizatheplantlady (at) gmail (dot) com or follow me on Twitter, Lizawheeler7.

All photos are mine unless otherwise noted. All content is also entirely my hard work. If you'd like to use any content or photos, all you have to do is ask. If you take without asking, you are a thief. And thieves suck. So don't suck. We have a deal? Good.
