I also have a bloom inside the house. A flowering tobacco seeded into my pot of rosemary. Rosemary, of course, isn’t hardy in my climate and I bring the rosemary indoors every winter. This flowering tobacco plant was growing in the container last winter and may have been there even longer, I can’t remember. I never pulled it out because I was just curious to see what it would do. It has bloomed when outdoors but I always cut it back to the rosette of leaves when I bring it in for the winter and this is the first time it has bloomed indoors. Three blossoms–how about that? All in all, about as good as I can expect for December.
Inspired by the words of Elizabeth Lawrence, “We can have flowers nearly every month of the year,” Carol of May Dreams Gardens started Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. On the 15th of every month, garden bloggers from all over the world publish what is currently blooming in their gardens, and leave a link in Mr. Linky and the comments of May Dreams Gardens.
