Daytime Christmas tree

Our Christmas Eve day tree. I like how it looks in the daytime almost as much as the nighttime.

Bougainvillea indoors

I have a standard bougainvillea plant (a little tree) that lives on my patio in the summer and indoors with the houseplants when it gets cold. It loves the warm indoors temps, the big sunny south-facing window, and the extra plant food. Flowers!

Houseplants in the living room

Like the kitchen shadows post below, I love bringing in the patio plants when the Seattle weather turns cold. On a sunny afternoon the feel in the room is glorious.

A south-facing window in Seattle is kind to houseplants in the winter time.

Teensy orchids

I know I’ve been using such technical plant names, but I can never remember the real names. Anyway, this stalk that looks like fountain grass is really little bitty orchids! So saith the Volunteer Park Conservatory, and they should know.

Very tiny orchids, in front of frilly white cymbidium orchids, commonly used for corsages

Fancy mum leaves

“Fancy” is not a very technical description, but I’ve never seen chrysanthemum leaves with a white border like this. Pretty showy!
