Minnesota in the winter gets to be a pretty bland place. Usually it's just white snow
African Violets~ this is the very first African violet that I've been able to keep alive let alone have it bloom for me and its done so several times I picked this one up at Wal Mart 2 years ago and it's bloomed 5 or 6 times and it just keeps getting bigger and bigger.
The first week of January I got these guys going, They are Hyacinthia's I picked them up at the grocery store clearance rack. they were 1.00 for a box of 10 bulbs so I picked up 2 boxes. I looked around the house and found some old candle jars (that I can not bring myself to ever throw out ) and there you have it. Every single bulb is blooming!
how about you do you need a little extra color and life in the winter months?
