Another Peek Featuring Schlumbergera

Everything was tucked into the greenhouse well before cold weather. What I didn't expect was that a chipmunk would move in as well. He managed to uproot several Christmas/Thanksgiving Cacti and a nice Burro Tail Sedum that was in a 3" pot. Mr. Chipmunk is no longer a guest in my greenhouse.

 Only two colors of Cacti have bloomed so far. Others are starting to show a little color in the buds. I noticed that the big box store thinks highly of their Holiday Cactuses too and they're only barely in bud.

 I can't see over into the Rabbit's Foot Fern so I held the camera up so I could see the 'feet.'

 Some bromeliad bracts just hold on forever.

 I've renovated some Burro Tail Sedum since squirrels played in them during the summer. Mistletoe Cactus had a better vacation outdoors and are plentiful.

I spent time today coaxing tomato vines away from the greenhouse walls so they don't freeze tomorrow night. It's a jungle of Lycopersicon esculentum  in there.

The only plants still outside are potted Agapanthus that need to come on inside so we'll have early blooms. Maybe.

I need to tell you that upgrading to Windows 10 has caused havoc. I can no longer comment on blogs where I used to. I tried several different ways. If the program takes my comment at all, it disappears into the ether.
