Winter Gardening Inside


Hello Everyone, 
Well I went back to my regular work hours today and I'm so excited to get this new year started with some new projects, adventures and beautiful eye candy. I want to start off this year by giving you a view of my winter garden inside the dining room. 
 The weather has been extremely mild so far this winter and usually in January we have a considerable amount of rainfall in the upper portion of  Northern California. But this year it is very unusual.  We are having cold mornings and sunny afternoon. During this time of year I'm cooking comfort food, reading, crafting and blogging.
 My other frost tender plants are outside covered with burlap and watered everyday with an automatic timer.
 They are in the very far corner of our patio where it is the warmest. A few years ago I lost my tree fern and many other tender plants from frost.  It wasn't fun replacing the beautiful old plants. I wanted to cry.  That's when Sweetheart invented our present system to save the plants from freezing.


I brought my Pink Geranium into the house to enjoy and also it added some additional Pink to my 'Pink and White' Tea Party. Here


My Spider Plant is about 10 years old and has lots of babies.


The angels are usually outside, but I thought it would be lovely to bring them in for the winter.


The chairs sit in the sunny window all winter long.  I can sit and look out and see the back yard and enjoy a morning cup of coffee or a cup of tea in the afternoon.




My Peace Lily or 'Spathiphyllum' is a welcome addition to the indoor garden.
