This metamorphosis happens every fall when the breakfast room goes from the bareness of summer to the lushness of a garden room in fall and winter.
For the plants come in to their winter home.
The plants cluster around the windows -- to soak up the winter sun. The big plants (which husband Jim has to lug in) are a jasmine, the lemon verbena, a Meyer lemon (which this year has but one lemon), an orange, and a bay tree.

Usually the plants come into the house on Columbus Day but lower temperatures on Saturday morning prompted us to bring the plants in early. Columbus Day is today and the plants are nestled in their winter homes and the breakfast room is transformed once again into the plant room.
Join Susan at Between Naps on the Porch as see what other transformations there are for this Monday!
