Green Windowsill



It's mid-January, some plants continue blooming on windowsills. Those that bloomed in December have already faded and rest. Here are new ones.



Impatiens is covered with bright red flowers, pelargonium zonale opened its purple flowers.





Roses took a rest, here is the orchid Dendrobium, it blossoms the second winter, isn't it beautiful?





 




Poinsettias white and red are still in bloom with their colorful leaves. All these plants decorate my windowsills in January. Day by day the light time becomes longer, the sun more often appears and soon plants will feel the approach of spring. 
What about your indoor and outdoor plants now?

  1. We are relying on our indoor plants to provide us with flowers at this time of year too.

  3. Nadezda, so many beautiful flowers! you have the springtime inside your house! I've never had plants inside the house because since the climate is never cold enough to stop gardening I have flowers in the garden all year round. Wish you all the best in this new year!

    2. Not really dear Nadezda, the summers here are brutal with temperatures well over 40, a real hell and not good for roses at all.

  5. Hi Nadezda, my indoor plants are all putting out new shoots and I have a plan to photograph them and do a post about them but haven't got round to it yet. For you winter must be cold and dark, so I imagine you are looking forward to spring. Those flowers on the window sill are very cheerful and bright.

    1. It would be a good idea to take photos of your indoor plants, catmint. I'm waiting for first signs of spring, it's true :-)

  10. Great splash of colour for you. It will be quite a while at our latitude before we can have plants on the window sill.

    1. David, I suppose my place is more to North than yours ;-) I watched on TV you have very low temps now.

      Delete
    2. I was thinking that you were in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA, but I just realized that you are in Russia. You are indeed farther north!

      Delete
    3. Yes, David, I'm on 60th parallel. Not too North and cold, today it was -8 C 22 F. Therefore some of tender plants overwinter in the city, not in the garden cottage.

  11. The orchid reminds me almost of a daffodil. I always buy early daffodils at this time of year, they are so cheerful and the scent pleases me as much as any rose! Your plants always look as wonderful as the ones in seed catalogues, I envy your skill!

    1. Oh, Jenny it's a compliment for me, thank you. My plants survive here, in the city, it's too little that they need to grow well. A bit of day light, sun, of humidity.
      I love first vernal flowers as well, you reminded me to purchase them.

  12. Your windowsills are really amazing. Full of such beautiful plants. I have few plants on a windowsill and few on our balcony. Few of them look quite good...but not as yours to be honest. Have a very nice weekend. Lots of joy. Greetings. :))

    1. This period of winter season is hard to survive for indoor plants, Aga. It's not surprising that your plants don't feel well. Hopefully spring comes after February.

  14. Dear Nadezda,
    I need plants inside, especially in winter, without my work in the garden. Now I have many Hyazinthus, Narzissus and Muscari. Later I plant them in our garden.
    Kind regards

    1. I try to plant the bulbs of early bloomed flowers into my garden as well Katharina. Sometimes it's not successful.

  16. Gorgeous blooms especially this time of year. :-) When we headed south and the heat in the house was left on 55, I only left two plants in and hope for the best. I actually packed two and brought them with me. Why, you might ask, well because a friend gave them to me and he has since passed. I didn't want to lose his gifts as well. They are doing pretty well with the sun and warmer than 55 house temps. I can't say it was fun dragging them into the hotel every night because they would have frozen in the car, but we did it. :-)

    1. Oh, Judy, you're amazing lady! You brought plants with you in SC, in memory of your dearest friend to prevent they die in a cold home. I'm sure they would have been thankful to you if plants be able to speak.

  17. Just this week I was thinking of you. I wondered if you were sowing seeds on your windowsill. But I see there is no room for seedlings, the plants have taken over all the space! Groetjes Hetty

    1. You're very right Hetty! The plants overfilled window sills. But... when the seeding time comes some of them will be moved to cool place, then to the garden. The place for sowing seed is the best in sunny spot.

  21. How pretty and healthy your windowsill plants are looking. I love the bright red and deep green of the impatiens. The dendrobium orchids are lovely.
    Thinking of you Nadezda and wishing I could share with you, some of the 40C heat we are to expect on Friday.
    Kind regards,
    Betty
