My indoor garden...

My indoor garden My indoor garden
This is the corner of my living room. There are (from left to right) - Red Lion Amaryllis, Dracena, 3 Amaryllis (teacup), 2 Amaryllis & 1 lily (terracotta), Snake Plant, Ponytail Palm, then 3 Ficus. The largest one in the bordered pot? It's 17 years old. It started out in a little 3 inch pot, about 5 inches tall. It's still a spindly thing, kind of like Charlie Brown's Christmas tree, but I love it! Oh, and I just built the bench today - gotta love IKEA!

Snake plant (in blue), ponytail palm (in gray). Here's hoping they survive!

Just got this (& the stand) today. And will it survive? Who knows, because Rosie won't stop chewing on it.

Just got it, and planted it today. Let's see if I can keep it going!

Oh, and I wanted to make my strawberry pot today, but it was howling wind & rain, and I have to do it on the open porch, so I guess it will just have to wait for next weekend.

Very nice! It all turned out so well.

Sorry about the strawberries though, maybe next weekend?

Yeah, I'm thinking I'll have to wait until then, because I want to get a special drainage thingie for the bottom of the pot, and the one I had was too big to fit through the hole (as I didn't have the pot with me while shopping).

Then it will be on to adventures in minimalist irrigation systems (ie - the first time I'll use a drill where precision counts).

Here's the view on a fall day:

It's why I wanted the house.

It's not so much to look at from the outside,

(from the street, non-view side), but that's OK - I live inside!
