Growing table blooms

The plants under the lights are doing quite nicely, even though I'm still battling aphids and mealy bugs.


I'm not overly fond of begonias, but the four or five plants I inherited are starting to bloom now, which makes them worth keeping around I think. What else is going on?

The grasses are going crazy:


But I don't want to dwell on that -- I want to show the blooms!

Basil:


Rosemary:


More begonia:


Even the much-neglected Sansevieria in the tiny pot is going to bloom again:


A couple of winters ago it really perfumed the basement!

Even those that don't bloom are contributing something pretty:



The plants on this table keep me gardening all winter, which helps quell the urge to start seeds way too early -- although it won't be long before it's time for that too.

(They also help take my mind off the fried bamboo for a few minutes.)


What do you have growing this winter?

I love the closeups. I think I need to buy a real macro lens...

I have more plants inside the house this winter than ever before. I finally bought a seedling heat mat and am trying to give small succulents a good head start.

You gotta love anything that gets you through winter!
