Big Plant Changes
Early this year I gave in and cut down all the pothos plant vines over the kitchen cabinets.  They were just too much work when leaves would die off for no reason 2 to 3 times a year.  I have started new hoya and some real philodendron plants to replace them, but it is a barren shock each time I go in the kitchen for now.  While the hoya and phils don't loose leaves like the pothos, they also don't grow nearly as fast, so it will be a long ...

Class it Up... Stacked Clay Pots
After my friend got me looking into Gnome gardens, I found a lot of cool pictures online for miniature gardens and broken-pot gardens.  While I have enough spare clay pots to make a broken garden, I decided that these with a few chips and cracks are just as good as a "stacked garden" and quicker to put together than a carefully planned broken-pot garden.
