    Snow, sun dogs, and gumballs today. Not bad really, especially if you were warm indoors! Stay safe! #horticulture #sweetgum #liquidambar #snow #iowa #cold

    Granted I dont use many stamps anymore - but I couldnt resist buying the winter berries stamps this week. Maybe they will brighten the envelopes of a few bills this winter! #horticulture #plantstamps #winterberries #juniper #holly #beautyberry #soapberry

    Here is a good idea for a houseplant- Streptocarpella. While the name looks a bit difficult- the plant is relatively easy to grow! Like African Violet, a close relative, Streptocarpella blooms for long periods indoors. Unlike African Violet, this one isnt as picky about water temperature or site. Indirect light, consistent soil moisture, and warm temperatures is all that it asks! Enjoy! #horticulture #horted #streptocarpella #floweringhouseplant #houseplant #indoorplant #indoorgardening #prettyandeasy
