Looking pretty good for March.

Living in Phoenix is weird, haha!

Ha! I’ve been having trouble with my blog for the last few weeks, so I haven’t been able to post anything. Today it works!

I was getting really sick of seeing that Christmas candy photo. It reminded me that I’ve been negligent with the blog, that I still have lots to explain on how I ended up in Phoenix, and what I’m up to now.

I’ll get there. Thanks for your patience.

For now, I thought I’d share this photo from my backyard – I’m absolutely in love with those Lobelia flowers.

So pretty!

I hope each of you is well and happy. I’ll try not to let so much time go by before posting again.

It doesn’t look or feel like November at my house.

The container gardens are still robust.

Blooming like crazy!

I’ve been harvesting tomatoes every day. I’ve also taken cuttings of the tomato plants and have them rooting inside, on the foyer windowsill near the the basil plants I also brought inside.

I’m looking forward to fresh basil all winter long. Hopefully tomatoes too, but if not, at least I won’t have to buy new plants in the spring.

In other news, the first of the three Schlumbergeras is blooming:

The blooms look electric in the sunlight.

So cool! The plant who is blooming is Crissy, who I got for free from Jericho Nursery a couple of years ago. The others should follow suit shortly.

Speaking of awesome blooming plants, meet Olive Oyl, an Osmanthus plant I got as a gift from Ginny Burton (who also suggested the name, which I think is too cute):

I cannot get over how big of a punch those tiny blossoms pack – they are wonderfully fragrant. Thanks Ginny! I will paint a decorative container for it sometime this winter.

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

It’s time for the Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day again, yay! You know how much I love flowers!

Let’s start by checking out the backdoor container garden oasis on a recent afternoon:

Shadows nonetheless, I’m still happy with how the containers have performed all summer. They have been a joy.

Also a joy, the Cosmos flowers in front:

I sure will miss them when they’re gone.

More from the back – the Marigolds making me happy:

The Geraniums (somewhat) came back to life after a long absence this summer:

The Gazanias also came back to life after an absence:

Another fav is the Agastache:

My fall bloomers are still blowing my mind, the Zauschneria ‘California fuchsia’:

I have no regrets adding those to my garden.

Indoors, Candy, a Lime tree, is producing heavenly scents indoors:

Lady Evermore, an Aeschynanthus, has blooms but they don’t produce a scent. Which is ok, because she makes up for it in color:

And the Echeveria whose bloom is like the energizer bunny:

It’s so nice to have blooms indoors.

Judging by the buds on the Schlumbergeras, next month will be packed with Christmas Cactus blooms. Fingers crossed anyway.

So that’s what’s blooming in and around my casa. If you like flowers as much as me, you should check out Carol’s blog over at May Dreams Gardens. She’s the one who suggested we post photos of our blooms around the 15thish of each month. Thanks Carol, for hosting again.

I’ll be back tomorrow with photos from those of you who don’t blog but still want to share their flowers with us. If you haven’t sent photos to me yet, you have plenty of time. Just shoot me an email.

I hope to see all of you back here.

Hey look! Lots of photos of pretty flowers blooming in and around mi casa:

(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!

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.
