Indoor Gardening

It's cold outside.  We have not had any snow to soften the landscape outside and 
my yard looks gray and sad.  My Mom and I were looking at a lovely garden in
an old Traditional Home magazine yesterday and I started to dream about spring.

Spring is still a couple of months off, so I'll just be happy to satisfy my desire to
play in the dirt by doing a bit of indoor gardening.  

I took some florist wire and created a fairly sturdy hoop ...

and wound my ivy plant around it.  That makes me happier.  Oh, and don't you
love that miniature African Violet?  I sure do!

I wonder what Marty is doing today?

Okay Bentley ~ let's start painting my thrift shop desk!

Susan and Bentley


  1. Wonderful attitude! Winter is when my houseplants get attention too.

  2. I have always loved topiaries(sp). Your is especially lovely made with your own two hands.

  3. I love it! Beautiful post.

  4. Susan, that was brilliant with the ivy. I have a vintage funeral hoop I am going to do train ivy on. I too am longing for the garden. I followed you on the network but it comes up as Terri, my Face book name. hugs, olive

  5. Love the raised detail on your white plant pot! Thanks so much for dropping by L'Heure Bleue At Home and becoming a follower. I appreciate it and am following you back.

  6. Your plants are lovely! Such a green thumb. African violets are one of my favorites! Susie

  7. The vignette you have created with plants is lovely!

  8. Susan ~ I love african violets and ivy. I MUST go out and get one today. I can't bear to think of spring yet ~ sigh ~

  9. Hi Susan, it's been so warm here also. I too can only think of gardening. Sure feels like Spring. Worried that we'll get snow in June. I potted a few greens for in my window sill. Yours looks very lovely and bring me even more thoughts of Spring. Give Bentley a big hug from me!
    p.s. He's one cute dog!

  10. We had our first snow yesterday...but like you I am dreaming of Spring...I cannot wait! I love your plants...they are rays of hope. :) Hugs to you and Bentley. Michelle, Quincy and Emma xo

  11. I can't wait the Spring months.

    Absolutely gorgeous topiary.

    Happy TTT...
