Party Favors and Fireworks

New Year's Eve is just around the corner and the plants in my greenhouse seem to be getting in the spirit with a little display of their own.
The fully open flowers of Queen's Tears curl open like a party favor.

The flower buds of the mother of millions plants are preparing to open like fireworks just before they burst.  

Foliage exploding in color creates a beautiful greenhouse display.

Have a safe and happy new year!


  1. I envy your green house. Lovely things going on there.
    The Queen's Tears is amazing...all those colors!

  2. Thank you, it really is wondrous to go out to the greenhouse on a cold winter day. If the sun is out, the temperature inside is a balmy 80 degrees. It's like being transported to somewhere tropical.

  3. I love the flowers on the Queen's Tears. Just gorgeous. My croton "croaked" after it was left outside on a cold night. I've always wanted a green house.
