Thursday, May 24, 2018

Dranks!

We like dranks. 😊

Show!

Show opened, but I couldn't go in because I'm not registered for the convention. I'm not whining, I'm just sayin'.
Sure I coulda snuck in, but can you imagine being bounced from an AVSA show?  Not high up on the street cred list... Or actually, would it be? 😂
I'll just get real pics tomorrow when it's open to the public.

Awards Banquet

What a crowd.
Amy said over 300 people are registered!

Also breaking news: I'm wearing a dress.
But you can't tell in this pic, sorry. 😂

I'll update soon with the WINNARZ!!!

What's Blooming - February 26th, 2016

Did anyone think I gave up growing African violets? No way, man!! I'm just busy. Adulting is hard!

I'm only letting one flower stalk per plant open because I've got hopes of growing some show plants to enter in the big AVSA  National Convention which is in Albuquerque this year. And as if it's not exciting enough to go to convention this year after missing last year's, and visit an area of the country I've never been to before, AND travel with my amazing new(ish) Boyfie that I'm completely smitten with--This convention falls right during my birthday week! I cannot friggen WAIT!!!! Seriously I wish I could get knocked into a coma and wake up when it's time to go. Alas, that wouldn't be a very reasonable plan since I have to go to work every day and make that damn money for this kick azz vacation. WOMP WOMP! (update: None of that ended up happening, long sad story.)

So anyways, here's some pics of a few flowers open on my stand today. Click to biggerize!

Merry Micro Sinningiamas

My African violets are all just boring foliage right now, but almost all my micro sinnies are going gangbusters! So here's some pics. (click to biggerize)

whoohoo!
Li'l Georgie, always a champ.
muscicola--Yes I know it's a shitty pic, sorry.
pusilla
Star Eyes is going CRAZY!!
pusilla 'White Sprite'
pusilla 'White Sprite' again
A buncha boring seedlings from my wayback cross of muscicola x Li'l Georgie that my boyfie won't let me toss in the garbage. (he's such a hippie)
See? So plaaaaaaain and laaaaaaaame ugh.

BUT! This is one of the seedlings from that cross that I've shown you before, which I still love.
I still need to name it & propagate it... #lifegoals

AND!! A new one has bloomed from that old cross. I love this one!
Same as above. Innit cute??

Welp, that's what's happening around here. Merry Christmas errybody!

Do-Over

Yes, I've neglected the crap outta my plants for the last year. No, I have not given up on them.
Luckily, one of the greatest things about African violets is that you can always get a do-over--And thank frig, because I've had MANY do-overs, and I'll certainly need many more!

I'm currently bumming around the house in pain whilst recovering from a recent surgery, so I took this opportunity to FINALLY repot all my plants. (The dates on the pots were mostly from August of 2014--EWPZ!!)

The stand before...

The stand after!

Tallulah was VERY interested in supervising my work from the floor.
She was pretty damn adorable, as you can see.


A tray before...

A tray after!


Alasdair wanted to be more "paws-on" whilst helping.
Or well, sometimes "mouth on"..


Sinningias before...

More sinningias before...

All the sinningias after!


Aaaaand Geneva gave zero effs. ;-)
