Today's Flower.......flowers around the house at the moment

Today I am featuring some of the flowers that are in bloom in the house.

This is the begonia I brought in from outside, it's very happy sitting in the window sill.

A close up of one of the flowers.

The African Violet that the mail lady grew from a leaf cutting......
My Christmas cactus is flowering AGAIN, poor thing flowers every other time but Christmas!! It's internal clock is all out of whack if you ask me!!

A beautiful Fall coloured Gerber Daisy, that I picked up for half price, it sits on the computer table.

A lovely variety today!
Love the gerber daisy. My dear MIL could grow the most beautiful African Violets. I kill them. Yours looks so healthy.
The begonia you brought in is doing great.
You'll have flowers to post for awhile for this meme when I'll be out buying some. :)

a pretty begonia!
My father loved African violets and we had them in our house while I was growing up.
I have had a piece of a Christmas cactus in a pot of dirt. It has rooted but never grown more than that. I wonder if it ever will. strange.

The begonia is simply lovely. Hushed colouring, almost surreal.
