TODAY'S FLOWERS

I have been absent for a few weeks but am very happy to be once again participating in Today's Flowers.

This is a small pot of Campanula portenschlagiana that I brought home from the local supermarket.

According to the marker that came with it, the planting mix needs to be kept moist. Place in indirect sunlight indoors, trim spent flowers outdoors. Perennial will flower in spring through the summer, performs well at an indoor temperature of 65-75 degrees F., and you need to apply liquid fertilizer monthly.

TODAY’S FLOWER’S was created by our good friend Luiz Santilli Jr.

You can find beautiful and unusual flowers from all over the world by clicking here.

after 18" of snow this week, I so enjoyed this lovely photo.

It's so nice to see something beside all the snow pictures (even though they are well done) It's nice to see flowers! Very pretty!

Hi Denise, lovely to hear from you.
This blue campanula "bells" looks delightful.
Good to bring home some flowers besides "bread and cheese"! Perhaps in spring you can plant it in your garden to prolong its life.

What a pretty shade of purple. It is nice to see something so colorful, when all around me I see gray and white!

Love the Campanulas. They bring true blues and purplesq to the garden. Its funny I would never have considered growing this indoors. As soon as it was done flowering I would put it in the ground. It is a hardy perennial.

Thanks for sharing.
Hugs,
