Back in February I did a post entitled Anticipation on a handful of buds that were taking their sweet time to open. Thankfully, all the buds eventually opened much to my delight.
This red kalanchoe is a succulent from my late aunt's garden.
My mom shared one of the offspring from her clivia...a member of the amaryllis family...with me.
It's the first time it's bloomed, and it's a real beauty.
The green onions allium planted in the veggie patch burst into bloom this spring.
I like these unusual blooms so much that I'm planting seeds throughout my sunny garden beds.
Another passalong plant from my mom...this Nun's orchid is a stunning bloomer with it's large flower stalks.
And, lastly, Belinda's Dream has gorgeous, ruffly blooms that grow larger as they continue to open.
Was the wait worth it? You bet!
Gardening is definitely a lesson in patience!
