"Wonderful and very informative blog about your travel and the plants... I recently seperated my Bromelaide I call Shark teeth because it bites if you're not careful (lol) it has serated teeth along the edge of the fronds... Flowers beautifully…"

Bringing up Bromeliads

 If you read my last blog post you are aware I recently returned from my first trip to Hawaii.  I feel very blessed to have been able to go to such a wonderful place, witnessing the remarkable and interestingly, contrasting, plant life of the islands.  The rainforests to the north and east on the islands are abundant with…See More

Albino Sunflower Seedling

Most of you know by now I feed the birds around my house.  The various birds, when coming to eat at my feeders, provide me a calming sense of camaraderie with nature - especially when I find them waiting for me to place seed out each morning and, some of which, are perching and eating at the feeders immediately thereafter - even when I'm standing very nearby.  This "peaceful, easy feeling" is what makes all the maintenance of having a bird feeder worthwhile.Speaking of maintenance, one of the…See More

Cast Iron Plant Lives Up to its Name

A few weeks ago, I had occasion to take a peek at my neighbors' gorgeous back yard.  We were doing a one-day dog-sitting stint for their beautiful and very well-mannered golden retriever.  I could go on and on about how wonderful this particular dog is, but I'll save my comments about Molly for another time!  What was quite…See More

"Melissa, I find some Azaleas to have beautiful form/branching structure - I especially enjoy the deciduous ones. I'm not at all a fan of remontant Azaleas...having them blooming in the fall just doesn't seem right to me. Cindy, a great…"

"Hi all!  I am envious of the variety of colors of Quince around you.  I typically only see the color of the one in my photo above.  Re Azaleas, they too are beautiful when blooming and not so much when not in bloom, I agree.  My…"

"Willis,  I feel the same way about Azaleas. I am sure i will get flack for that statement, but as you said about the Forsythia.. they are quite a boring shrub once they bloom. Dont stone me, I still have two."

What is your favorite plant ? Why?
I love the Moonflower Vine not only because it has beautiful, white blooms that open and luminesce at night but because it fills the warm night air with an intoxicating aroma. This aroma brings out the sphinx moths to dance around the vine. These moths are as large as hummingbirds but are not as shy as the little flying jewels, thus you can watch their dance closely. Although the vine is an annual and can be finicky to start from seed without a little extra help, (should soak and/or scarify the seed coat before planting,) it is easy to grow once sprouted as it is a relative of the resilient Morning Glory.

Although one of my 2013 New Year's resolutions was to become more active, I had not started doing too much in the way of dedicated exercise until last weekend.  Yes, I know, I'm six weeks late as it is mid-February!



At any rate, my boyfriend, Mike, and I decided to take a Saturday morning walk in the neighborhood to kick-start our hopefully "routine" fitness routine.  It was quite gray and chilly here in North Texas, but the brisk…

Thank you for the information on the scale. I passed it on to my CM consultant and she is most grateful.

Thanks Cindy for the advice. My scrapbook consultant asked me about the scale and I my trees have it too. Ouch my cat is biting my hand while I type!! I am really enjoying Garden Share. I live in TX and we just put down 5 yards of mulch. I will try and post some pics soon. My front yard is a paradise for hummingbirds and butterflies.  I guess I am in Zone 8.
