3 asparagus fern
1 cactus
1 dragon's blood

1 echeveria nodulosa
7 geraniums

1 ice plant
1 Jacob's coat
1 lavender

1 lemon grass

1 mother-in-law's tongue
1 sedum

2 unknown succulent

1 wandering Jew

  1. Oh, your windows will be so full. And beautiful.
    I often wish I had a lot bigger windows. As it is, I can only rescue my geraniums , a lavender, and rosemary. It's hard to stand outside and pick and choose who gets to come inside for the winter.

  2. If only I did not have indoor only kitties! Sigh, not many plants get to come inside for me... I had an Asparagus Fern survive the winter in a pot outside this past winter! I was shocked and oh so happy....

  3. We have some houseplants we take out in the summer. I need to clean the toy room we have for our grandsons so we can get plants to the shelf in the east window in there. I like to put the herbs in the garden window in the bedroom we use as a dining room.

    Thanks for your nice comment on my blog anniversary post.
