Garden Bloggers Bloom Day (Jan '09)

Well, today, is the 15th, and so I wanted to start the new year by participating in Garden Bloggers Bloom Day over at May Dreams Gardens; Those of you who are regular "gardening bloggers" prob'ly already know about this, but for you newbies-like-me, this is a monthly gardening photo carnival hosted by May Dreams Gardens on the 15th of every month. I had planned to start the year by posting some blooms from around my garden, but, sadly, I took a look around yesterday, and there is nary a flower to be found...well, save the fading blooms on my amaryllis:

The ones from last year's batch haven't even bloomed this year, but my narcissus are trying to bloom, and I hope in a few days I might have some pretty flowers to show from them. I *do* still have bananas in one of the trees, and a bromeliad (I think - anybody know??)with an interesting-looking seed pod...

After reviewing some of the other participants entries, I'm not sure I should even post my paltry pics; But, it is winter time tho, even here at the beach...they're telling us to bring in all the potted plants and outdoor pets, so THAT's how you know its winter in these parts!

Anyway, if you want to see what's bloomin' in January in some other spots around the blog sphere, do be sure to visit May Dreams Gardens; And, why not share a snapshot or two of what's bloomin' in *your* yard! (If you do decide to play along, please leave me a comment, so I can come visit your garden spot!)

Thanks for joining in for bloom day. It's nice to have blooms both inside and outside, isn't it?

Perhaps your amaryllis will hang in there long enough for your narcissus to start blooming.

Those are some crazy looking seed pods! I have no idea what those might be.
