This is the view outside the kitchen window, gray and wet. Inside this window is where the majority of my house plants are. As you can see there are very few, I'm just not very good with them. It's either too much water or they are dried up sticks before I realize they needed water.
I grew Amaryllis for the first time in many years last winter. I had read that some people saved the bulbs and would get blooms again the next year. I stored mine in the garage and didn't water them (actually I forgot about them), then this weekend saw that they had all sprouted. So I brought them in and watered them and am interested in seeing if they bloom again this year.
A Christmas cactus from last winter, hoping it will bloom again this year. I'm not sure when the buds would start to appear. Wish me luck!
A view outside part of the dining room window shows a couple of things. One is that I finally planted some Pansies in the window boxes, they do great here and usually bloom all winter into spring. I also did quite a bit of clean up around the pond, that's why it looks so empty on the right side.
A view from outside the family room shows that the big Japanese Maple is starting to turn yellow. It's just beautiful right now, but it won't be long before the branches are bare. This tree is gorgeous no matter what season it is.
The forecast is for some sun tomorrow which is very hard to believe when I look out at how hard it's raining. But at least I have some pretty views to look out on while I'm inside today.
What's happening outside your windows? I'd love to see views of what you see from the inside right now. If you decide to post some views just let me know I'll add them to the bottom of this post so others can see too.
