Lipstick Plant

My houseplants get me through the winter in Iowa, I mentioned in an earlier post how I found a lipstick plant and I had not had one in years, when I was repotting my original purchase one of the small branches broke off, I stuck it in a small pot, it has rewarded me by blooming!

Sunnys On My Mind


After the snow we had in Iowa a couple of days ago, the bird feeders have been far more active than they have for most of the winter. Anyway, it reminded me of the volunteer sunflowers that grew under the bird feeder last summer and this pretty little black and white moth that visited one day so I wanted to share this slide show. I wish I knew the identity of the moth.
