The fog was heavy, early this morning in my garden.

Winter scene in Purchase NY, guest image

A very fine winter scene of the melting snow by a relative who lives on the East Coast. I love this image!

Sledding

A snowy morning, and sledders in a brief break in the white stuff falling. Note the slate gray color of  the clouds behind the trees!

Sledders near my house today

Fear not!

“And the angel said unto them, ‘Fear not!'” This is one of my favorite quotes from the Bible. Especially good for this year, these times. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Air plants!

An exciting thing happened. Someone sent me a gift of 11 air plants! I’ve kept some air plants alive for a few years so I’m pretty sure I know what to do with them, but I’m hoping these don’t need unusual care. What I know to do is soak them for half an hour once a week (upside down so their little butts are in the air), shake off excess water, and keep on a bright windowsill with lots of air circulation. Makes sense, right? Anyone out there know what kinds these are? I’ve included a picture with numbers to help you tell me what’s what if you know. Thanks in advance!

All probably some kind of tillandsias???

 

Know any names? Please post in comments. Thanks!

Autumn color

I’ve been taking photos out my front window this whole season. Yesterday, just before a big rain started, it looked like this.

Threatening sky

Rose gardeners PSA: If it’s going to rain big, go out there and cut your opened roses for bouquets. They’ll just get ruined if you leave them out there.

Rain is coming. Might as well cut roses and bring inside.

The recent snow was beautiful in the garden.

Succulents at Longwood

A few years ago I was lucky enough to tour the incredible Longwood Gardens outside of Philadelphia. My goodness, just stellar. Here is a shot of some succulent plants.

Succulents indoors at Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania. Aren’t those blue ones wild?

Three succulents

The only name I know for sure is string of pearls for the middle one. Some kind of rosette with pink-gray leaves on the left, and the weirdest one, a cactus with long papery spines that are kind of like fingernails, but very pointy indeed, on the right. We’ll be getting sun in this window all winter.

Smoky sky

We are grateful that the air in Seattle is not worse. We are not dealing with orange visions of armageddon, just “very unhealthy” levels of air pollution, blowing in from fires not very close by, thank goodness.
