It's only 1.5 hours from May 1 as I type this...close enough!

Wanted to wait until May 1 to share my Calanthe sieboldii!

I just took my Bletilla out of the root cellar and repotted them....I'm keeping the pots outside in the hopes that they will bloom in June at the proper season. I'll probably sink the pots in the ground to 'simulate' they they are actually growing in the garden.

Whoa, and I thought you were growing them outside. I bet I could grow them that way too! Never ending possibilities!

My Kefersteinia tolimensis is blooming.
The small plant isn't particular showy, but every so often I am surprised by a couple of blooms.

Wonderful! Love the spots and the color! I got my first Kefersteinia (laminata) this year. I don't even know where it is!

Been busy with the garden, guests, the opera yesterday, and the primrose and daffodil show today!! Phew. Did put up a new voting page for fun.

Ha, ha. Hilarious! I had this tagged as "Red?"!
Turns out it's C. intermedia x Bc. Morning Glory.
