Seasons Greetings Lovelies,
Just wanting to share some pictures I took around the house and gardens, seasonal things and some just for fun.
Window boxes planted with baby plants, pansies, ivy, begonias, coleus and sweet potatoe vine cuttings, and fern.
My Secret Garden beneath my bedroom window. Finally I think I got it right with the right plants for the right lighting, these should stay small.
I love the pink pointsettias with the plum coleus together.
The Christmas Tree....is not what I would have bought, and I got a bit depressed when I saw it. The housemate got this and I didn't think I could redeem it, but I only added a strand of lights and a few glass balls......
The mantle......is very long.....11 feet long. I added an extra strand of lights, a boxwood wreath with simple snowflakes on it, Hebe Cupressoides evergreens, and pine garland.
I didn't do much this season, but I did want the bottle brush trees out, I just love them.
After looking at the trees for a bit I decided one day to glitter a few of them, am glad I did! Nothing like sparkle!! :D
He appears to be singing :D
A beautiful small flowering plant, Winter Wonder campanula.....Trader Joe's carries different things I love to see.
Outside the front veggie patch is doing great. The orange tree finally got planted and around it I planted mustards which are giant now, the collards in the back growing slowly but can grow to 6 feet like the last ones I had and last a few years, and in the front are 4 cabbages doing very nicely....the lush healthy greenery makes me so happy, and I love juicing them.
I love the pink poisettias so much I bought extra to make hanging baskets for the front porch.
In the back yard where I used to have full sun even in the winter, I realized the mango tree grew so much the past year it shades the entire back yard now, so it will have to be trimmed to have the sun I need to grow the veggies and flowers I want. I bought all heirloom seeds, but they have to wait until the tree is trimmed.
The rabbits were eating everything I planted and I had to cover the cabbages here with cloches.
Thanks for visiting.
I wish for you all a healthy and happy, peaceful and abundant season and Holiday.
