Bulbine natalensis in the warm polyhouse.....George and I both went in search of lsomething beautiful and alive
Which leads me to another cheerful wintertime activity namely, planning, or any of the many incarnations of hopeful anticipation. I look forward to spring/warm weather, winter flowers, the first blooms of new perennials, the first shoots from hardy tropicals that will show me they've survived another winter. And, I look forward to planting this Bulbine beside a limestone boulder in the Florida garden. Reading catalogs, books, or magazines, surfing garden sites, even travelling to warmer places can suggest new plants for future acquisition. This form of covetousness, used as a weapon against the cold darkness of winter is a harmless foible.
