Fresh From The Greenhouse

 I was enjoying the long awaited summer weather this weekend when it was brought to my attention that my last blog entry about our adventure with "Calvin" was blocked.  So I went in and tried to open it and Blogger said that this "Blog was not available".  So I re-posted the story and was able to read far.  Really don't know what is going on with all the problems of late but I hope blogger can get it solved.  So here are a couple photos of what I have brought in from the greenhouse.  And if your interested check out my last post, it has nothing to do with gardening just one of those little adventures in life.


Chamaecereus sylvetri or as MeMa calls it Peanut Cactus.  We have always had this plant and have several larger pots of it in the greenhouse.  It came from MeMa's late cousin Carol who passed early in life after heart surgery to repair a problem she had from birth.  This is the first time it has bloomed in all the years we have had it and I'm sure even Carol had no idea that it bloomed.  So dear Carol this one is for you.
