Natural Beauty

Even the easiest winter in Saskatchewan finds me missing the natural lush, green beauty of summer.   Regardless of how small our house may be, I will always find space for a few houseplants to see me through the season

When I moved in here with Dan, he had one plant sporting one brown leaf.  I nurses it back to health and it thrived for years before it totally failed.  When my son in law Charlie, lost his Mother, he brought me her little plant to take it’s place.  This is what was that little plant.
I go to the same nursery every year to get my bedding plants.  One year, I got this little succulent when they were clearing out their perennials.  It goes like crazy, I cut it down, and it grows like crazy once again.
My daughter bought me this little tree a couple of years ago for mother’s Day.  It was about 3″ tall.  Now it is 27″ tall. If it ever reaches it’s full height of 30 feet, we will for sure need a bigger house. (The elephant was from granddaughter Genie for Christmas)

Have a naturally beautiful day!

My Winter Green Spaces

Little Bit of Summer

We are seven months away from green grass, budding flowers, sprouting vegetables and leafing trees. Although our house is small, I have my areas of greenery to brighten our spirits through the long Saskatchewan winter.

Kitchen Window

Now that I am almost recovered from my outbreak of shingles, I will be returning to work tomorrow. I must make time one evening to work on my kitchen ivy. It is getting a little out of control and becoming a problem when I work at the sink.

Lucky Bamboo

I dusted my bamboo last night. Somehow there is always dusting to be done, even when we are six feet deep in snow. 🤷

Cactus Blossom
Blooming Ivy
Miracle Plant In Bloom

Occasionally, we wake up to random blossoms to brighten our day.
