    Here are plants that bloom inside nonstop, year around for me. I am merciless with my succulents trying to keep them small. This stem of a crown of thorns has always been in bloom since I purchased it a few years ago. Have chopped off its top and given it away, but that seems to just encourage flowers. The little cactus multiples like crazy and some little spikey guy is always in bloom too.

    The orchid I got last fall (a year ago) and it has also never stopped blooming. Great flowers but the plant isn’t up to snuff. Think I missed on the water at sometime. Have never had one in continuous bloom for so long.

    Then there is my absolute favorite, Hoya lucunosa. A very small leafed Hoya that has the smallest, most sweetly fragrant blooms every month of the year. The scent is what makes it my favorite. Cleaning up the dried, dead flowers on the table, not so much.

    The small cactus is a Mammillaria gracilis :smt026

    I did a small video on pruning them a while back :)

    yours have little red berries. I think that’s cool. Never thought of pruning them. I’m a real lazy gardener. Sometimes I divide a pot and set out the extras for neighbours. That worked really well in my old neighbourhood. Here I have just given them to the local houseplant store.

    Final harvesting of the kale, this is what I discovered: PXL_20221115_212015765.MP_compress87.jpg

    I had cut down the stalk.... And look what has grown! Baby kale leaves! PXL_20221115_212054948.MP_compress2.jpg

    Here's a stalk i haven't cut down yet.

    Below are grasses growing along a hiking path. PXL_20221110_191618762.MP_compress66.jpg

    This was a good posting, Cayu.
    You can refer to those baby kale leaves as, “gourmet kale” and impress your dinner guests.
    Seriously though, you have had a decent harvest with kale this year haven’t you. What do you plan to do with the plants now— lift it and compost it or chuck it onto your bed mulch…or will you leave it and pluk any little leaves that may form during the winter?

    Those shots of grasses are indeed interesting to see. The sun was shining on them at just the right angle.

    Great posting.

    Beautiful fuchsias & roses @Logan!

    PXL_20221123_173020041.MP_compress95.jpg

    Last of the carrot harvest just in time for Thanksgiving dinner. I put a spoon at the bottom for size comparisons. These were a small carrot type.
    The soil was frozen around them!! I needed my pickaxe to get them out of the Earth's grip! {Not really}. Carrots are fine though.
