Flower Fridays

As discussed in another thread, thought it would be good for people to participate in Flower Fridays where we all take a break from self destructive stuff and negativity and plant something and watch it grow, perhaps even with competitions as to whose flowers first ;-p

I hate flowers. They are a false representation of colour and beauty trying to hide the bleak and depressing truth that is the world.

I'm joking of course. :p
Just felt like being a bit emo.

I planted some winter pansies in my window box and am rather impressed that they survived the snow and frost!



I'm fine! Totally fine. I don't know why it's coming out all loud and squeaky, 'cause really, I'm fine!


Who else is fine?!?!?

Mine would have to be something growable indoors as I don't have an outdoors.

Lovely idea. :)

I like flowers. They're always nice to look at.
I plan to buy a selection of bulbs and get planting soon.

That's an Amaryllis? They're absolutely beautiful.

I'm going to go get some stuff soon!
Can anyone recommend a good flower to start growing indoors?




Now I'll play your ghost as my ace, whenever I'm led astray.
But I am actually good, can't help it if we're tilted.
I'm in my right place, don't be a downer.

Orchids are pretty good for indoors, but the results can be a little hit or miss.

I may get some pansies or something similar.

I'm going to do this :) I'll need to do some research first though. I have no idea what to be planting or anything, ha! I'm going to go have a look downstairs in the communal gardens in a bit and see where there is some space for me to do my thang.

Otherwise will just nip to nearest florists/garden centre and get advice there.

I like my cacti. They are less demanding than regular plants. They don't die if I forget to water them for months...

Haha that's what I got a cactus once - but I "offed" it anyway. I managed to kill every plant or flower I ever had. The house cactus (about 4 inches - a baby) I had was doing ok until I had to idea to take it outside in the backyard "for some sun". Three months latter is when I remembered about the plant and it was dead as dirt. Never knew why but that was my last plant
