Green Green

I always wanted a Staghorn Fern and was fortunate enough to find one several years ago. This one has been a peach. In the summer I take it out to the sanctuary and just before it frosts I bring it in. They're supposed to be grown on a fence or a wooden slab but that wouldn't work here. They also aren't supposed to be watered the way I do, soaking it all the way through occasionally, but this one seems like it's happy with my care. I love that it's OK with me and it's very interesting look.
The other's are some greens in my kitchen, the stacking bowls were made by Amanda. Diane

Diane, my Mom would have loved your Staghorn, she always wanted one. I can't seem to get anything to grow, I love plants. The fern is so unusual, yet gorgeous to look at! You have the touch, it looks very healthy!

I used to have a staghorn many years ago, and you couldn't kill it if you wanted to. I loved it. The green pottery is so pretty, I love the utensil holders, and the bowls are also very unique and look perfect the way they are displayed. Your daughter is so talented!

You are so sweet to have my ugly bowls out. Only a mother could love them. I guess that makes sense. I love your fern too - it looks very healthy. xobean
