When I start with storytelling, ideas just tumble out. Mr. Horvich's story of his first job, at Jewel Tea was a springboard for all kinds of memories, prompting me to return to Charms blog and indulge myself with stories fro...

Hyacinths
Single pots of white Hyacinths that I brought into the house where it is warmer are starting to fade.   Purples are my favorite.

I have a grocery store purchased pot of Hyacinths on the counter in my kitchen. Same color. Same delicious scent. Does that mean Spring is almost here?

Bromeliad Vriesea and a Shrimp Plant

A Bromeliad Brightens a Blustery Day
Two years ago I bought a pitiful specimen of Bromeliad Vriesea, almost dead at a big box store, marked down from 7.98 to 2 dollars. 2014 I knew it for a bargain: notice the two pups on each side of the main plant? They've grown into a big pot full of foliag...

Bloom Day in the Greenhouse Jan. 2016
Outside the greenhouse most everything is frostbitten beyond repair except for Sweet Alyssum. Inside, Hyacinths are starting to show color in some of the buds. I have enough with color to give to January birthday celebrants at the Nursing Home next week. In...

One of my Favorite Views
While we wait for more Hyacinths to open -I'm looking forward to Gypsy Queen, and soon- let's revisit one of my favorite greenhouse views.  I still have the bamboo tray table. I still use the cedar bench and the yellow watering can. The inspiration for th...

It May as Well Be Spring
We've had freezing nights, this will be the third in a row. Last night's low was 25º. Clouds may begin to roll in again tomorrow bringing warmer temps. This brave Daffodil is open for a whole week. The pink thing  behind it out of focus, is an equally coura...

January Bloom Day 2016
Less than a week ago, we had warm weather, too warm for January and blooms started to pop open prematurely, Azaleas and the like. Brugmansias had not received a signal to go dormant and were full of blooms. Two nights of freezing temperatures took care of m...
