    Rehab instead of garden

    I got some crazy bee in my bonnet and stripped the 16 casement windows in my living room. For the first time in 30 years they close all the way. And, it looks gorgeous. I put up plastic sheeting, unsecured at the bottom in case I need to seal with rope caulk as well, but so far I've seen no movem...

    cactus flower

    Photo-upload-420157?1418666632 Meanwhile, a limb from my Mom's neighbor that literally fell over the fence a year ago, ended up tripling its size in a bucket of soil where I planted it, and this week went into flower.

    Bloom Day December

    Photo-upload-420185?1418750446 The Amaryllis Bogota blooms on, looking exotic against the snowy outside, a glorious splash of colour. I bought a pot of Christmas Roses, _helleborus_. I saw them a few days ago when I was at the supermarket and resisted because they were a little expensive although after some thought I reali...

    Miniature rose in small trough on balcony

    Photo-upload-420214?1418833550 I have had one mini rose, a deep velvety red, that I have been growing on the balcony for many years. It flowers every year & receives no protection from the weather. It is planted in a small trough on the bar around the middle of the balcony railings. It doesn’t look very good in the photos...

    More like March than December

    Photo-upload-420105?1418519815 The series of 3 connected Pacific storms rushed onto the coast but by the time they reached us they had sobered down to warm temperatures and a steady rain, with the result that snow was washed from the sidewalks and roads; water gurgled merrily down the drains; fog, mist and clouds draped the va...

    More sprouts

    Photo-upload-420193?1418765061 Started mixed sprout seeds from a red cellophane packet. There is no label on the packet so I am not sure what mix of seeds they are; they certainly look different from the mix I have been growing. Photos: Walking home from the studio about 3:00pm, the sun already behind the western mountains....

    The pumpkins are all gone

    Photo-upload-420129?1418594380 Ten days ago we cut the frozen pumpkins with the chain saw, so the critters would be able to eat them better. It's been warm enough for the pumpkins to thaw, so the critters have eaten them completely.

    Chili-shaped California Wonder

    Photo-upload-420171?1418693116 I bought this Californian Wonder from a local nursery. At time of purchase, it was just forming flowers. Now it has several fruits, which I am quite happy with. The only thing is: all the capsicums are not bell-shaped! They all look like fat chilies (See photo). I had thought that the plant labe...
