Bringing the Outdoors - Indoors

Welcome.  I am so happy that you stopped by.  We will have tea inside today as we are having unusually cold weather here in Southern California and are hoping for more rain by the coast.   I like to space out planting bulbs so we will have some Paper whites in bloom into January as it is a nice way to transition from all of the colorful Christmas colors and decor.

It is a little too cold this morning for us to go into the garden so Bentley, My Studio Assistant, is waiting at the door to welcome you inside for a cup of hot tea  and to share with you how we bring the outdoors - indoors this time of year!
                                The Paper Whites do well inside and add a lovely fragrance.

Winter white Hydrangeas and the addition of a bird house and watering can give the feel of bringing the outdoors - indoors

Delicate plants do well inside to protect them from our recent frosty nights.

Delicate herbs also do well in our sunny kitchen green house window and add some much needed green color during the winter months as well as fresh herbs for cooking.

Thank you for stopping by.  I love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate your visits, e-mails, comments and those who follow my blog.

                              May you find Joy and Peace in the New Year.

Have a lovely week.  Blessings,  Erin
