I tried a new combination of plants with this basket. I had no lining on hand for the basket, so I just took some husks from my coconut trees.

I planted my impatiens in the usual spots, with a few areas that I'll share with you on a later post. The pots work really well cause I can move them around.

This is my favorite spot for impatiens, they are so happy there. I gave them new fresh soil mix but, I think is that they get just the right amount of light. Sometime it can get so hot here that if they get direct sun, they look torched by the afternoon.

This morning I notice that this banana plant just fell, need to clean up a bit around it.

I cleaned up a bit around my chandelier and now I can see her, she's beautiful.

I have to admit that my scrapbooking blog has been taking most of my free time. I've been working hard on my garden but, not taking pictures of my progress. I'm hoping to start blogging again on a regular basis.

This post is about an invitation I got from my client Virginia. She asked if I accompanied her to visit a friend's green house. I said yes of course, and I'm so glad I did. He was so nice and we had a great time sharing ideas and learning a few new tips.

This is what I like to use too. But, kinda very hard to find now cause they come from Venezuela. Thank God I have plenty left from my last order.

Keeping it simple, love it.

This is what he uses to aerate the green house.

This is what he uses to heat the green house in those rare cold nights here in south Fla. This is an oil heater, there is oil inside the coils. I have to research this cause I love the explanation he gave us on using this type of heaters.
