(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: Thriving Where We Are Not Supposed To

For years my house plants survived in a poorly lit, ground floor studio. As soon as I moved in to my new place, sunlight poured through the high windows and, despite all logic, the plants withered away. I'll never understand it. And so, after a long hiatus, I bring the green back into our home. I hope that these tulips, however temporary, (and probably the least logical plant to bring indoors) have the strength to stay for a bit and perhaps grow again next year. Wish me luck...


  1. Good Luck! I'm having trouble growing tomato plants at the moment. I had to perform an emergency 'repotting' procedure, to try and save them from dying (I had been too kind and overwatered them I think).

    Fingers crossed that both our plants thrive!

  2. Aw! I do wish you much luck with your plants. I find that it is very 'hitty-missy' as far as indoor plants go ... and always sad when they arrive at thier demise.

    However, some people manage to keep their plants bright and cheerful, so I am hoping that you become one of them.

  3. We need more house plants. That's a cool one. :)

  4. I have three house plants. That's all I can handle. All the best with your new home and flower endeavors!
