Sunday Blooming Sunday
















I do not have much in bloom right now but will share what I do have. Plus a stray african violet or two. The sun shone today, which made it a good day. We enjoyed a small road trip to the soy candle factory so I could buy wax to make my candles and a couple of new fragrance oils, well, one is a repeat, Orange Spice which is a popular scent with those that I have give a candle to, the new scent that I have not tried before is Orange Blossom. I also bought some soy tea lights at their retail outlet I don't make tea lights, too little and I would spill to much :) . Then we went to my parents to take them our for Chinese.

You have more blooming right now than I do! Beautiful! Thanks for stopping by my blog today & for the nice comments. :)

Looks like you have some nice indoor plants. Growing plants inside has never been a strong point of mine. I did try an orchid but it didn't live through repotting. ;( Thanks for stopping by. :)

I was going to comment on how lovely your orchids were, but when I got to the end of this post I saw all the butterflies and forgot everything else:) What a treat to see all these gorgeous creatures during the dead of winter! A belated happy birthday--I don't blame you for playing hooky:) My "big" birthday is this summer, and I'm not looking forward to it. Maybe I'll have to treat myself to see some butterflies, too.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Otherwise I would not have gotten to enjoy your lovely house plants and the colorful butterflies! What a treat for my eyes - butterflies are my favorite.

You have a soy candle factory?! Where??

Not much blooming? I think you have a lot of beautiful blooms. I've never tried orchids-so exotic and gorgeous. I don't think it would be fair to bring hem home and have them die under my care. :) The candles sound wonderful, something I've always wanted to try.

I don't have anything blooming. I used to have many plants around the house that our cats never bothered until these two. Oliver and Elliott seek and destroy all...LOVE the butterfly photos...

The paperwhites are so pretty.
I also do forced bulbs in the winter.
They just chase the cold away.
