Winter Bloomers

I am sorry that I have not posted much lately. I have been preoccupied with some personal issues. I am now trying to post photographs of the (multitude of) blooms from the past few months. Please bear with me. I may be posting several articles in a day and most will include a number photographs for each plant.

Winter Bloomers

We had a few plants that bloomed throughout the winter. 

Outdoors, our Pansies (VIOLA X WITTROCKIANA) never stopped blooming.

We also had several Dianthus plants (DIANTHUS PLUMARIUS) that bloomed throughout the winter. This is what they looked like in September:

We also have some mounding Dianthus that I will post about later. They are blooming now and are really pretty.
