Indoor Gardening...

We visited Longwood Gardens on Monday 
and they had their paper white bulbs out for sale in the gift shop.
I like when they are sold loose like this,
I can buy just the right number of bulbs to fit in my "paper white" pot.

Six fit perfectly,
and because they have large sprouts, 2 inches or more, they were ready to plant!

My "just add ice" orchid is in full bloom,
it has eleven gorgeous flowers on it.
I purchased this orchid way back when on the cheap in the food store...
3 ice cubes per week, and it blooms beautifully.

I have had this Cyclamen Plant forever as well, 
in the center you can see it is getting ready to bloom.

My basil was not looking so well, 
leggy and stringy, the basil leaves were small.
So I gave the plant a toss, added new soil and seeds to the pot,
and now we will have fresh basil all winter.

It's a tiny little garden, just enough to bring me a little joy!


  1. I could learn a lot from you! I always loved indoor plants but now I just have a Christmas cactus. Enjoy your day sweet friend! Hugs!
