This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

Inside plants................

Not a lot to talk about of late. I am going to show you my house plants for now. The African Violets are blooming. They do better than most of the house plants. They love the window they are in and bloom non stop.

There are a couple of other colours but not blooming yet. In the kitchen window I have an Azaelia that my son bought me a couple of years ago now. It was outside last summer and did really well. It is beginning to bloom now. Just a few blossoms. I forgot to take a picture but my Christmas Cactus is also blooming. It does that at Easter and Christmas. I think I might get a couple more of those. The old Faithfuls.

There is also a small herb blooming. At least I had thought it was an herb when I brought it inside.

Then there is a plant I brought in for the winter that is doing fantastic. It is recovering and now looks like it will bloom. I think I will re-pot it and maybe keep it inside. I do know that I will buy a couple more this year. I tend to like plants that thrive'

Well what can I say, not very good pictures but just wanted to post something for now. I am thinking that I may go to some thrift shops tomorrow. So maybe I will have something to talk about then.


  1. Janice, love your African Violets. They are my favorites too. I find they do best in a north window.. plenty of light but no sun. At least here in Florida.

  2. African Violets were my Mother's favorite house plant and her were beautiful. I can't grow them at all, they always die. Yours are lovely.
