Evergreen


Is this not the most wonderful little windowsill garden? I am completely smitten! The cute snails (made by JooJooLand, owner of the garden) and the tiny bonsai tree... I want! Unfortunately, my windowsill is not this lovely and bright or big. So instead, I instantly saved the photo to my image file and set it as my desktop! Now it's like I am looking out a window when I am working at my computer. I know, I'm silly, but I had to change the snowy scene I've had as my backdrop since December.

Speaking of plants, do you guys remember my adorable Echeveria, Dondo? Well, he actually is perched--albeit precariously-- on my windowsill. And despite my black thumb, he's doing great! He's even grown a bit on top; there's a little bud that wasn't there before. So that's good news! Because with previous succulents, I pretty much killed them by now. Maybe I will eventually be able to get Dondo some friends and have a cute indoor garden of my own.

So how are things where you are? Aren't you glad it's Friday? (I am!) I've been hearing though that it is awfully cold and dreary where some people are. Is that what it's like where you live? Here in Southern California it doesn't much seem like winter anymore and it's not too chilly-- it has just been super windy! The tree in my backyard (that once upon a time produced nectarines) was even tipping over, so my parents cut it down. Super sad but it was rotted out. Still, other than the blustery breeze, it is nice and sunny here. (Sorry, I'm sure some of you are hating me right about now!)

Anyhoo, fill me in! What are your plans for the weekend? I don't have much going on at the moment-- though I would like to see "No Strings Attached"-- but I'm hoping my productive streak will continue; I spent three hours cleaning (more like detailing) my bathroom last night and I did my laundry! Not so exciting, but necessary.

Till then, have a good one. And thanks to all those who have entered my giveaway so far! For those of you who haven't, there's still time to get in on the fun-- just follow this link.

xoxo,

I wish I had a windowsill that big. I would do my best to have a window garden like this and not kill the poor plants. My green thumb doesn't really work. Happy weekend!

Hey there lovely lady! Happy Weekend! It's Friday at 4:30pm and I don't have to be at work again until Tuesday morning. Yay! Plans include our elementary school family dance tonight {with glowsticks! awesome!}, a good workout tomorrow {so I can eat pizza guilt-free tomorrow night}, a swim at the local rec centre with hubby and kids and the return of the awesome vampire/werewolf/ghost show Being Human on BBC3 Sunday night! Oh and Monday {since that's sort of my weekend} I'm meeting up with a friend at Starbucks for a long gab session and a latte. Yay!

Weather here has been grey and windy and wet, but the sun came out this afternoon and I've got my fingers crossed that it will stay that way for awhile!

I love this windowsill photo, too! I wish I could have something like that, but Rufus always chews on plants/flowers. (Although I guess he probably wouldn't chew on a cactus!)

I don't have a ton going on this weekend... but I hope you have a great one! xo

That is just.....LOVELY! the only think i can actually have on my window are cactus! all the other plants will die cause i don't have direct neither indirect sunlight :(

But i have orchids on the bathroom window and they look awesome :) and some others downstairs near a window and look great. I'm sad cause i bought primulas (have no idea how to translate it to english) tree days ago and the flowers are already dying :( don't know where i should put them neither what to do to save them!

wouldn't you fill your house with flowers if you could?
:) and about the snails, i have no snails but i have origami paper cranes all over the windowsill

What a cute little windowsill garden. I could use some green in my life! No Strings Attached is on my to-see list.
