One of my favorite things to do in the dead of winter is to go visit a nursery greenhouse where tropical plants are sold. I have 44 plants in my sunroom and foyer. There are more if you count duplicates. I enjoy dividing my plants and giving them to friends.

I'm always on the lookout for unusual, bizarre-looking plants. I like to see the new offerings at Gales Nursery and enjoy the heat and humidity inside the tropical plant room. It feels so good on a cold day.

So, guess where I'm headed today? Yep, Gales!

I wound up getting a spathe lily and another genus of hoya plant. I have four types of hoyas now. I desperately want them to flower because the blooms are lovely and supposed to smell like honey.

As soon as Trixie spotted the spathe lily she tried to take a bite off of the leaves. She chews on my shrimp plant all the time!! Bad girl! Shame on you

Although I do have an orange, a lemon, a fig and an olive plant (cant really say they are trees yet- but I did get some figs last summer) yesterday I ordered another orange and another lemon tree - I think they will be about 4-feet high so fingers crossed I should get fruit from them this summer at least that's what is promised.

I should really have ordered another bay tree because the one I've had for many years, (and I've never ever brought it indoors in the winter months ever ) seems to be on its way out probably due to the very low temp. we've had this winter and silly me didnt even give it a thought.
