Your window garden is alive with color! My favorite is the miniature rose bud. So delicate and full of life.

Kate said...

Hi, AZ;
The baby roses are my fave, too. It's 6 below zero here tonight. So, I'm thankful for an indoor garden. :)

Gorgeous flowers!
I am so green with envy. I found you through the WW blog. I love my flower gardens, but health keeps me from doing much anymore... so I will return to enjoy yours!
Hope to see you are my blog sometime:)

Kate girl !!! You have such gorgeous flowers in your home : ) I am kicking myself for not getting some bulbs to force .. I worried about the girls getting into them .. darn ! I missed that train ;-)
I love the snow falling on your very pretty blog girl .. I'm counting the days till Halloween again .. haha

Kate .. I had to leave another comment .. I just saw the ad for a new Canadian garden magazine (we woefully lack any truly good ones and lost the one out of two that I knew about) .. THANK YOU !! for having the link here .. I just subscribed to it and I am so happy to look forward to seeing the start up .. whoopee eeeeee !!

Ahhh, indoor flowers--what would we do without them! Thank you for your comments on bloomingwriter, Kate--they are much appreciated. I'm revamping how I deal with the blog, so that should also help matters.

Kate said...

Hi, Grammy;
Thanks for stopping by. I noticed you're a Wisconsin Gardner - I'm an ex-Minnesotan. That's where I learned to garden indoors. Kept me sane during those long, sub-zero winters. :)

Kate said...

Hi, Joy!
Yes, lots of flowers indoors right now but most are destined for new homes. I'm on a tight budget for holiday gifts, this year, so I grew stuff for all the gals on my Christmas list. :)

Kate said...

Hi, Joy - Thanks for stopping by. I'm curious to see how your blog revamp goes. Yours is one I visit quite often though until recently rarely left comments. That's not because I'm rude. More because I'm dumb. :D

Took me awhile to get with the program and realize that if I'm visiting a blog and enjoying the contents I should take the time to say so...

Carol said...

How lovely Kate! So cheery to see, while looking out at snow or by now sleet! Oh! now I read you will be -6 tonight! Enjoy your indoor garden of blooms! Keep warm too. Carol

What a great Wordless Wednesday! Hope you have a fantastic day!

Gloria Bonde said...

Kate, you have a beautiful indoor garden! Wow - do you have lots of south side exposure? - Gloria

Kate said...

Thanks, Carol - Your Wordless Wednesday was lovely. I need to send KC over there - she's my snowshoe buddy tho I'm getting the feeling she's not really up for it this winter! :))

Hi, Gloria - Loved your true confession this morning. I may have to fess up to mine with the apple seeds. Yep, the flowers wouldn't agree but my house is almost too sunny --- lots of southern exposure.

Grace Peterson said...

Hi Kate~~ You've definitely got a gift for indoor gardening. I couldn't help notice the little turtle on the side of the pot. How cute is that?

Kate said...

Hi, Grace;
He's the 'good luck' turtle. I place him on the sides of the pots I really, really, want to grow. :))

Corner Gardener Sue said...

Beautiful! I think the orange one, I think an amarylis (sp?) is my favorite.

Kate said...

Thx, Sue ~ I hope you are not too buried in the big snows coming your way.

jan said...

Your amaryllis looks fab! I have some bulbs coming by way of a midwestern visitor next week! Can't wait to get them started!

Kate said...

Hi, Jan!
Bulbs from a friend are the very best kind of bulbs to grow... :)

Rose said...

Beautiful! I can only hope that my amaryllis eventually looks half as good as yours--no blooms yet.

Just saw your post about making spritz. This has been a holiday tradition at my house for years. The cookie press is sometimes a little tricky for the grandkids to handle, but they enjoy adding all the sprinkles!

Old Bookworm said...

Just beautiful! The amaryllis is gorgeous! Of course, the rose is a favorite too! Lucky you Kate to have a sunny window like you do. :)

Commonweeder said...

That rosebud is beautiful. I've got roses on my mind because I am giving away Right Rose Right Place by Peter Schneider. You and your readers still have about 36 hours to visit and leave a comment to enter the drawing. I'll choose the winner on Sat. Dec. 12. In the morning.

Kate said...

Thanks, Bookworm. Are you planning to review Animal, Vegetable, Miracle? Maybe you good do a guest post over here. Every gardener I know loves that book...

Kate said...

Hello Commonweeder and welcome. Free stuff? I'm in! :)) I shall check out your site...

Old Bookworm said...

Kate, the book is on my list to read, just haven't got to it yet :)

Kate said...

Well, maybe I'll review it and send 'em your way to buy the book! :D
