I've been collecting seashells for as long as I can remember. From east to west, coast to coast, and shore to shore, I always find a treasure to keep, and adore.

Living in a Green World

I love living in a green world, Oh yes I do! I also love living as eco friendly as possible, but that isn't what this post is about.

I was telling a blogging friend about a wicker chair I bought at the Salvation Army Thrift Store...
for $10! It was about 6 years ago, maybe even 7.

This is the chair
 I had this gorgeous Pothos in it for several years, until we went to Vegas in 2009 and there was a freeze while we were gone (and no one thought to bring in my plants!)

This is the chair as it has sat for weeks on end because it was taking up space in the screen room just sitting there empty...I brought it in thinking I would do something "else" with it.
I have repainted it, and still haven't found a round cushion large enough for it....
It is back out in the screen room, and I have another Pothos ready to vine all over it!
I love the Eastern exposure this room gets. By next summer I bet the pot doesn't even show! This pothos was started as a small piece of another plant...

After snapping this pic, I took a little tour around my yard.
I have volunteer ferns popping up between the rocks around the pond!
on both sides!!!
The Jasmine is also looking and smelling wonderful!
This is one of 5 of my Jasmine
I just love those little white flowers. This is one of my favorite outdoor plants.

Next month the Poinsettia will be getting its red brachts, and has almost grown up to the rain gutter on the house. Maybe this year I will get my family Christmas photo in front of my blooming Poinsettia!

We shall see!

I love this time of the year!

your yard is so pretty! I love wicker furniture. I wish I had a florida room for wicker furniture and plants and shells. That would be so nice!

You have a beautiful garden! I can't wait to see the pointesttia. Several years ago we had a holly bush in our yard. I would take pictures of the kids in front of it for our Christmas picture.

That was the perfect use for that chair. Lots of climbing space for a pothos.
