Nothing to brighten your spirit like blooms inside your house during the winter....that's the main reason I love my African Violets so much. thumbup

Make sure you keep us updated on what's blooming! flw

I'm so glad I'm not the only one with a home overflowing with plants. With the eviction hanging over my head this year I've potted up everything I don't want to leave behind so there are plants eveywhere there is any light to speak of.

Thankyou for sharing your plants Jimmy.

I always felt like I wanted to move North, but seeing living plants in November like yours Jimmy makes me wonder if we shouldn't move South when we have a chance, instead. Thanks for sharing.

You DO have a rain forest going there, Jimmy... what a green thumb you have! Duh

The Morning Glory tree is so cool, & your Crown of Thorns & Euphorbas look soooo happy! I don't know much about those plants, & am afraid to look them up because then I'll want them! grinnnn

I don't have near as many plants indoors this year as I did last year, because I just don't have room for them if I want to put up a Christmas tree!

Thanks everyone. Patty I don't let my Iguana's run all over they have a cage large enough I get in it and walk and turn while playing with them. Yes they would try to eat them and wind up dieing becuase some are very toxic to animals. Like the Crown of thorns I have been told that the thorns are toxic and if you get one stuck in you you will get very sick But my grandsons dog last winter ate one I spent hours digging them out of her mouth never made her even least bit sick. I have also been told the leaves of these plants are used in Asia to help cure cancer so who knows I wont take the chance. Glad you like them. Only one of the AV's blooming are from Sarah the others have not bloomed.Patty I don't kill pine or fir trees just for one day a year. Being alone now I seldom celebrate anything no reason to anymore.

Thanks for your very kind words Penny . But I am sure yours would look as good and maybe better then mine. I just hate letting Tropicals or border line plants Freeze so I bring them in the Rian forest house even with Trent telling me no no. laugh

Comfrey it is great, but if my wife were still alive I am sure they would be somewhere else. She would have never let me bring this many in the house but at same time she would think it was funny me even wanting to.
