The lady who lived at Linderhof in the 60s, 70s and early 80s
always hung ferns at Linderhof
She was successful in wintering them over
In fact, one of her ferns belonged to a great aunt
And was said to be over 100 years old.
Linderhof's ferns are circa 2015!
But as Ruth did so do I
But I like mine in a sheet moss lined pot
I had two . . . but could only find one
And one mossy pot and one green pot
was not a good look!
A friend told me about a local nursery that had these great pots
$15 for this size plus $2 more for the chains!
The moss is on the outside, the green pot goes in and it looks as if it's planted in
a sheet moss pot!
A great look for little money
(Far less expensive than the old fashioned metal form that you line with the moss
And reline the following year and reline again the year after that!)
There is something about summer and flowers in the house
No more boughten flowers
For there are garden flowers!
zinnas and day lilies in a pewter vase in the living room
Hydrangeas in an old blue and white transfer ware pitcher in the dining room
My favorite summer bouquet -- a little bit of this and a little bit of that
In another old blue and white transfer ware piece -- this time a sugar bowl
on the breakfast room table.
For Husband Jim for Father's Day
I made fresh cinnamon rolls for breakfast
Coffee and hot cinnamon rolls fresh from the oven
