    Christmas Hyacinths

    Pink Hyacinth Blooming and Home garden
    Our daughter bought me a lovely Pink Hyacinth as a Christmas present. They were just 3 Pink Hyacinth buds in a wicker basket in moss. The label said they were pink & the picture was of a very deep Pink Hyacinth so that was what I expected till they started to open. But they turned out to be a...

    Harvested Holly sprigs with their bright red berries on them, and Bayberry boughs which have a lovely holiday fragrance- the same scent that bayberry candles have. These will be used to beautify the interior of our house for the holiday season. As a side note… While I was outside harvesting...

    A Holiday Gift, from Mother Nature. Mood: Very Happy

    Nandina 'Harbor Dwarf' Harvesting, Dwarf Umbrella Tree Dying, and Northern Bayberry (Junior) Budding
    Umbrella tree that was already planted here when we bought the house was unhappy, constantly suffering from leaf spots and yellowing foliage no matter what I did for it. I decided to remove it. I think I have the wrong soil pH for it. Besides, I’ve never been fond of Scheffleras except ma...

    I have been working at creating Christmas decorations from greenery harvested on site. While most of the evergreens on the property are cedar, I have managed to locate one large white spruce, and several balsam firs – one of which is now my Christmas tree. Wild grapevine seems to grow everywhere,...

    I'm Dreaming Of A White Christmas!

    Serissa foetida - Snowleaves Blooming and Downstairs Raised Bed garden
    Of course, I’ll be dreaming forever more! There’s no white Christmas around here in north-eastern Australia … no snow flakes or frost! The closest thing to snow right now is a plant that has ‘snow’ in its name … it’s common name. Serissa foetida is comm...

    Success!! (Melt and pour soap-making, Part II)

    Unmolding the soaps was fun and exciting! It wasn’t as hard to get the soap out of the molds as I thought it might be, and the impressions are crisp and attractive. Cutting the tray soap required a fair amount of force, but I made it through and the cut edges look a little rough but not to...

    My Christmas Tree

    Everywhere else the prices of christmas trees seem to go up and up, but at the nursery here in our little village we still only pay the unbelievable price of just € 9.00. (They grow them nearby, so don’t have to purchase them themselves, no transportation cost…) I like to decorate it the same way...

    Christmas time not in the garden

    I just want to get back to my garden. Christmas means more time at the shops, more time catching up, more time spending money on other things, more time doing everything but gardening. And with the bunged up thumb to top it all off… ugh. I really want to get some things done. I guess I&...

    Christmas Cactus

    Christmas cactus Dividing and Container garden
    I bought this and when I took the wrapper off some of the branches fell off and seemed to have a long root, so I am propagating them and hope to give a lot of them out next year. It seems like some of the flowers are white, some red and some pink. I chose a plant that was full but didn’t ha...
