Freesia and Dianthus

Bunny, Mushroom, Freesia, and Dianthus

Freesia has a lovely fragrance. The dianthus does not produce a fragrance similar to cloves. Its fragrance is typical carnation.

Succulent Bud

Senecio Bud

The Senecio was a cutting from my first Senecio plant. The plant roots where it lands. It does produce a fragrance similar to cloves.

I like that the plant fills empty spaces.

Solandra maxima

Saturday, March 28th, 2020

The Solandra maxima flowers have a delicious fragrance from dusk to early morning. I thought the plant had died, but couldn’t bring myself to remove it. It went nearly a year without a single leaf. Sometimes being patient results in lovely gifts.
