A TINY BIT OF THE WESTERN CAPE, BLOOMS UNDER GLASS IN JANUARY
As the snow falls outside, under the protection of glass, tiny bulbous oxalis species from the western Cape, continue to bloom in their pots. In the center, the large pale pink blossom of Oxalis zeekoevleyensis, which grows in wetter places in its native habitat, grows in a pot which is set in a pan of rainwater. I am always surprised at how much water some of the winter-blooming bulbous Oxalis can take, even standing water.

YOU ALL SAW THE PHOTO LAST WEEK OF MY CLIVIA'MOONDROPS' X, BUT I WANTED TO SHARE HOW IT CHANGES COLOR AS THE BLOSSOMS AGE.
