My little indoor garden

Every morning when I wake up I look at my plants and I am the happiest person in the world.  This shows that plants do make people happy.

I was glad when a few years ago the book “Urban Jungle” hit the shelves and became a bestseller.  It gave a whole new perspective on how to decorate a home.  Instead of spending a fortune on expensive new furniture and following forgettable trends you can also create a cozy home with inexpensive plants.  Nothing beats a green home and it will always be fashionable.

To have your own little indoor garden brings a lot of joy just watching your plants grow and seeing new blooms. It also keeps you busy taking care of your plants and turning your home into a peaceful area where you can relax and just be happy without wishing for more.

Here are pictures of my own little indoor garden and how my plants have grown..



plants love lots of light and are happy near a window. My monstera on the right is growing very fast.



One of my windows overlooking the garden and the apple tree



Little Bo loves to go for a walk in his little jungle



The little garden looks lovely in the evening light



In winter it gets dark early but you can still enjoy your garden under the lights. My geraniums are growing just as fast in winter as in summer



Hanging plants give the whole room another cozy look



You can create your own little quiet corner in any room



I covered Tina’s little worn-out and stained sofa with a cover and cushions and it makes this garden look very cozy



The geraniums in front which are growing higher and higher and soon Misty and Bo can play hide and seek behind the plants



Somebody is enjoying life in the jungle



This geranium is already living since 3 years here in the jungle



Little Bo has found himself another spot under the plants

Here are Misty and Bo and wish you all a very happy year 2020


Winter Lights and Decorations

It is this time of the year again when people are busy decorating their homes and their gardens and trees for the festivities of winter.  This already starts long before December.  No matter whether you celebrate Christmas or not it is also the time of year when streets look lovely with beautiful decorated front doors and houses.  Sometimes one can see a Christmas tree at the window.

I am one of those people who loves decorating and make the home cozy with lots of lights, all winter long.


Just a little Christmas tree on a table looks very romantic, as seen in this little cottage in the woods



Misty loves the place next to the Christmas tree while watching the outside world at the window.



walking along the streets you see all these pretty lights



Little Bo has found himself a comfortable place just next to a little Christmas tree



Love the baubles on the trees which makes this house look very festive



Lights in the house and the snow outside gives the home a cozy look



A little tree on the table is enough to create a festive ambience



Looking outside it looks like a painting of a snow covered forest



I love looking at the decorations at store windows, like this one here in Old Montreal
