My Little Garden

Hi Everyone! I love plants very much and it is very difficult to grow them in a flat because of the weather conditions  Violets, for example,  do not grow well here because of the darkness. So, I have plants that go well in small places and where there is a bit of sunlight. In the summer,  the sun is terrible here and dries the soil of the vases. I got a beautiful flower vase on the mother's day that has a plastic container, but I do know its name and it is in bloom again! This means that she likes the place where I put  is and my watering as well. I also love succulents,  but many times the strong wind caused the vases fell down on the floor and the plants broke and became weak. The space is so small that I bump into them and they fell down on the floor as well. I also have a "Dracaena Frangans". When I brought it it was short, but now it is almost two-meter long.
I love basil and I intend to have a vase of it. I like to put basil leaves on the tomato sauce and pizza. Pizza with basil it is called "Marguerita Pizza". I want to have seasoning plants. There is a corner here that has sunlight, but in the summer the plants simply dry.


My rosemary was drought. I got the other plant from a neighbor more than 25 years ago. I do not know the name either, but it has beautiful purple flowers.

It is growing good.

This plant is so good because it bears any bad conditions.


My rosemary is growing good. I put it on the food.


This is " Guaco " or Mikania glomerata , which is good for coughing.


Do you know the name of this flower?


I love Finding Neverland !


Wishing you a lovely week! Sandra

  4. Some beautiful plants, I love herbs and have a great assortment of them myself. Rosemary is always a good one to have to add to sauces.

    1. Hi Christiene, yes, living in a house with a garden is a paradise! I miss seeing the sky, the stars at night, listening to the birds, etc. I have visitors here such as hummingbirds and butterflies, but in a house there are more birds. It must be so nice to sit down and listen to the water!
      Wishing you a nice week.

  6. It's a pity that you don't have a garden, but it's good that you can grow plants, especially herbs, in pots. I can see that you look after them well by keeping them watered in your dry climate.

    1. Yes, I miss having a garden so much because it is a place to relax, to think about life or anything we want, to read, to listen to the birds, to see the butterflies and so on. Thank you Linda! The herbs loves water very much, mainly on dry seasons.

      Cheers, Sandra

  8. I don't think it matters whether you have a garden or not, anyone can grow plants, even on a windowsill.
