Some of the “winter” flowers that are blooming in San Diego right now.
African violets are very popular at the grocery stores and plant nurseries for the Fall and Winter. These three are plants of mine:
Begonias, especially the wax leaf, angel’s wing, and cane begonias, bloom year-round in San Diego.
They are some of my favorite plants because of that, as well as the fact that they are easy to grow, can adapt to shady or sunny conditions (or anything in between), and their flowers simply are cheery little things that, well, cheer me up.
The following are from my gardens.
The veritable pansy is another flower which I find immensely cheerful to look at.
It also was one of my wise old grandmother’s favorite flowers, especially purple ones since purple was her favorite color.
