Winter Flowers - African Violets & Snapdragons

 Needed some color today....it's foggy and wet outside.
 A  little Rosemary sprig.
 More light and fertilizer this year ....and look at this beautiful large bloom. 
Amazing what a little TLC will do!
 I love this dark blue...but will need to repot this one soon after the blooming is done.

 January Snapdragons...Oh My!

Our barrel of snapdragons just keep going and going...what's left anyway, after
my cuttings for the house.  I took this picture this morning.

Color is always welcome in January!

Happy Tuesday.

Hello Mumzie and Happy New Year.
I was admiring your snapdrggonds and they're beautiful. Are they growing now and for you to pick or was these photos from last year?
My brother got some from a neighbor and I don't know if I am going to get any and don't know what color they are. I don't know much about gardening and hopefully they'll come back.
Have a good week.Snowing here.

Oh, my! I surely won't show you my pitiful little african violet. I think I better go fertilize it! Didn't think I'd notice the Scottie plate, did you? It's darling!
