My Air Plant Display

I had been wanting some airplants for quite a while. I love how they look and they are fun to display in different ways.

Here are a few of mine but after I did the pictures I remembered that there were two more in our bedroom that did not get their pics taken.

I have them scattered them through out the house in different locations.

I bought a large order of them and shared them with my sister Sheri. All the plants were in really good shape even though they were mail ordered.

They are a funny little plant I water these about every 5 days I find if not they dry out and start to shrivel. There is no soil, no rocks just some fake moss in a few of the containers for looks.

I made the concrete wire containers as well as the one on the stand. The shells and the salt lamp I already had.

Sometimes it is the tiny things in life that bring us such joy and can always put a smile on our face.

 

A lot of color

I normally buy quite a few new plants during the spring and summer.

Plants brighten up spaces many multiply and you can share with someone special.

Watering all the plants is therapeutic for me and it helps me clear my head and enjoy the great outdoors.

This year I planted about 1200 flower seeds.

One of my favorite flowers are the zinnias they are in all shapes and colors and have been beautiful.

If you love a lot of color add some flowers in different colors to your yard and porch.

Flowers brighten my day and thanks to my sister reminding me about pressing flowers I have been doing that the last three weeks.

Jack is going to be making me a 12 x 12 flower press and the little grandkids some small ones. I think this is something they might enjoy doing.

Spider Lily

My sister Sheri and I swap plants, cuttings and flower bulbs.

We both have so many different things we have a blast trading plants.

This Spider Lily is one of two she gave me last year and the blooms are huge.

Have a safe and happy Fourth Of July weekend.

Silvery wandering jew

Silvery wandering jew is by far one of my favorite plants.

You can have it in a hanging basket or a container and let it cascade over the side and crawl to the ground. It can be planted directly in the ground and it spreads really fast.

The leaves shimmer in a silvery purple stripe on the front and solid purple on the back and many times there will be leaves turned both directions which only adds to the beauty of this plant.

I planted some in the ground last year in a few different spots in the backyard and we had one freeze so it froze but I noticed it is already coming back.

To make a new plant you can pinch off a piece and stick it in a pot or the ground and it takes off no roots are needed. I really love that. I find it prefers morning sun, evening sun or partial shade rather than full sun.

I went to the local nursery and bought two hanging baskets of it this past week for $9.00 each. This plant is a big bang for your buck.

It actually looks quite beautiful mixed in a container with something taller and some flowers.

Towards the end of March, I decided to fix a tall container of begonias and silvery wandering jew for the front and it turned out quite well.
