It’s been a long, and busy winter!

Between the holidays, being ill, moving to a different apartment, having the Horizon House Gardening Terraces closed due to constructionIMG_3637…I haven’t really had the “gumption” to write in my blog.  For that, I apologize!  I still don’t have a clue what I will write about, so bear with me.

All of my indoor plants survived the move, which is a good thing.  I’m hoping the light won’t be too different.  I guess we’ll find out soon enough.

I did manage to get to the Northwest Flower & Garden Show in February.  As usual I attended the lectures.  They are usually what I go for anyway.  The displays are pretty, but crowded.  The lectures, on the other hand, offer lots of new information.  If they don’t satisfy my curiosity, I just leave and go to another!  Maybe it’s the Master Gardener in me?

I usually also manage to get myself to the fellow who sells the air-plants or tillandsia-1.  I have taken a liking to them.  They are easy to care for, and they like my windowsill.  Last year I got one in bloom and it generated many little “pups” which I shared with friends as “hostess gifts”…rather unusual and enjoyed, I hope!

I got another one this year, which was in bloom, but after a week or so, the bud dropped off before actually blooming.  I hope it still gives me “pups”.  I like being able to distribute them!

Well, there you have it.  My first post of 2016.  Sorry it took so long!!!!!
