A little later than usual, let’s take a look at what’s blooming in a nonblogger’s garden. Specifically, what’s blooming at Ginny Burton’s (of Burton Optician) house in DC.

Says Ginny, Hi Liza! There’s not much blooming chez moi at the moment.  My poor daffodils were seduced by a long warm spell and came up, only to be blasted by the Polar Vortex, so now I have a row of mushy dead greenery lining my sidewalk.

And inside the house, my only things in bloom at the moment are the jasmine and one pelargonium and, of course, my fragrant olives.  I have a whole bay window filled with pots of them, but couldn’t photograph them because the light is behind them.  The big one that’s on the breezeway is nearly 5′ tall.”



Gorgeous, Ginny! I’ll bet that tall Osmanthus smells heavenly. Lucky, lucky you!

Thank you so much for sharing your photos, I appreciate it.

I’ll be back tomorrow, 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.
