Whew! We have been back to school this week and it has been an adjustment to get all of us back into the routine. I was headed to the gym today after school but stopped in at Jo-Ann Fabrics and got sucked in....looking at home decor fabrics! Fun! I found some good options for cornices for our living room and also some nice possible black prints for the office. When I get to go there without kids, I spend WAY longer than I mean to!
On to the rest of my houseplants....
This plant was a cutting from one of the plants I had in a pot on our front step last summer. I cannot remember what kind it is....but I had cut off a bit to put in some water in the house and it sprouted roots. So, I potted it up and it has been thriving!
This is one of my favorites....Christmas cactus. VERY easy houseplant. At our old house, it was in a west-facing window and it bloomed in January. Now I have it in an east-facing window and it bloomed right around Thanksgiving time into December. It's really pretty! I water this one only when I remember to and it has been in this pot forever.
This is my other favorite plant. I potted this ivy into an old pot that came from the farm where my grandfather grew up in SoDak--South Dakota! I added a small tuteur for the ivy to climb. It gets a haircut when it gets out of bounds....
One Christmas, I added white lights and left them on....and they have been there now for years. I like to have some kind of white lights in the house. A timer turns them on and off each night.
I most recently started some paperwhites in my kitchen to have something green sprouting out during these long winter days.
