Does anyone else have the same wrapping station I do? The guest room bed is just the right height. Its very high off the floor..in fact we worry our guests will turn over too close to the edge and fall off this dear old bed with carved cherries on its headboard, but who could part with it? Not me =).
Between the colored glass or the coleous, I don't know which I enjoy more. Isn't color just fabulous to see. I praise the Lord for his beauty!....and at the onset of gray wintery days too. Now all I need to see is a cardinal flashing by. It would help to put out the bird seed, wouldn't it!
My spinning guild president gave me small 'starts' of these coleous in the fall and look how they've grown! I'm delighted. However, I brought in a start of my scented orange geranium and it refuses to root. I knew it was the wrong time of year to start geraniums in water but thought it wouldn't hurt to try. I do have a stem of African violet that rooted though. Sigh of satisfaction here, although I can't find A.Violet potting soil yet. I googled it and find it is 1/3 peat moss, 1/3 perlite, and 1/3 vermiculite. Back to decorating the small tree downstairs. These days are passing so quickly and there is so much to do, no wondor Mom always started getting ready for Christmas in the summer!
