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 construction…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. 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!!!!!
