my little bit of green

This hoya is taking over my victorian plant stand. It has huge bannana leaves. i don't know the name.
This is a Bromeliad, ijust picked up at a local nursery. It has a big bloom starting to pop.
This a century plant that i've had for many years.

I think that plants bring a little bit of happiness into my life. A couple of feet of snow outside and the sun is shining. The plants are coming out of the dormant state and starting to sprout blooms and new growth. It makes me feel spring IS coming. Here are some of my babies.

I'm with Gary, eye candy indeed...my poor lil' elephant ear is stretching her neck to the meager bits of sun coming through the window at the chateau...as we all are!

Piper's dad just went into hospice, so troubling times ahead for the poor kid...what next!!!

These plants look great, a lot of mine are kinda ugly and spindly. Guess it's time to get a few new ones. Thanks for visiting my blog and your nice comments about my old cat:)
