    1. Thanks, Pat! I love macro photography, but not nearly as much as I love flowers in the depths of winter!

  3. Love the flowers, and the chili peppers. I have long thought about trying to grow some myself on my patio.

    1. Thanks, Catsynth! You should try growing your own peppers. I'm in my sixth year now, and we have fresh peppers every winter!

    1. Leave it to me to figure out a way to combine crochet and gardening, huh, Stitchy! :)

  5. I sure miss flowers! If only we had such a thing as flowers that grew in the snow!

    1. Tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, crocus and irises can all grow in the snow, Karen! You should give it a try. Boy, do they brighten my winters!

  6. You DO have a green thumb, don't you! And (I assume) lots of grow lights? Our plants go sort of dormant in the winter - they stay green but don't really do much else. It's exciting at this time of year to see them wake up and start putting out new leaves in response to the longer days.

    I love your indoor larkspur. :)

    1. Just one grow light, Sue, and I used it only during December. I do have a lot of plants that seem to go dormant after a while, even in winter. You should see my baby neem trees. They are bare, just as if they'd gone through winter outdoors. They sprouted new leaves last spring, so I'm hoping they will do the same thing again...

      Neem trees take several years to mature enough to battle bugs, and my trees are still infants. I had to fight off an attack of spider mites last autumn! ON the neem trees!!!
