My Indoor Garden

We are getting a little fresh white snow this afternoon so it is lovely to have some cheery blooms to warm a gardeners heart. The above photo is the last of my bouquet of roses from last week-I sure did enjoy those!


This week at Walmart they had some pretty Gerber Daisy's for $2.99

Gerber Daisy's bloom for a long time and in summer can go in window boxes or planters.

These large Kalcochims were only $2.29 becauce they had some Christmas decorations in them-can't go wrong on these easy care plants.

I winter my geraniums over in the basement so I am slowly taking some up for my indoor garden

There was a blow out sale at Vesey's this fall and all their bags of bulbs and perennials were $2. even the amaryllis were $2. so I picked up a few.

African Violet with the Gerber Daisy

another amaryllis

The Vanco tulips grown locally are available in the grocery stores now making me happy. This week they are on sale for $5. for a bunch of ten- sweet deal!


My son gave me a new orchid- it is so pretty and very easy to care for.


This plant stand was a gift from a couple of my daughters a couple of years ago. I love it and it holds a number of plants. The baywindow gets the morning sun.

A couple of fun collages so easy to do with Picasa 3

What about you - do you have a little indoor garden too?

Enjoy the rest of your week end.

Carolyn

Carolyn, it is so lovely to see these photos of your beautiful blooms. The recent freeze left my garden looking a bit sad. Even my cyclamen took a beating this time. Now I need to get out there and clean up the mess. So thanks for sharing your blooms. ~ Sarah

You are amazing. You take Walmart and grocery store bargains and make them look spectacular. I made my family look at this post to help teach them what you can make from next to nothing. Thank you so much for your beautiful post.

Dear Carolyn, I do not know how you came to my humble blog but I am so Thankful you did. I came to your blog and feel myself completely transported. The snow powdered landscape first greeted me followed by the burst of tenderness by the flora portraits and of course your beautiful home...Pages from EM Forster's Room With A View came into my mind :) - Will be adding you to my must follow blog list...

I always try to have flowers indoors whether they are ones I bring in or buy. We like a lot of the same flowers, but I especially love tulips in the spring!
Take Care,
Ulrike
