Spring is coming... is your green thumb ready?

This is the during... I should have taken a "Before pic... ooops!

Spring is coming, I know it is. Today I thought I'd help it along... I was repotting my beloved Aloe Plant!

Here's the Aloe Plant Story... About 2 years ago, I was up at my grandma's house, and she was watering all her indoor plants when a sprout of aloe broke off . She gave it to me saying if I went home and put it in a glass of water, it would root and I could plant it.

So I did.... and so it did! My little 2" sprig of Aloe rooted and I planted it in a beautiful piece of pottery. (The 3rd from the right in the photo below.) It sits in the really sunny window in our kitchen. Over the years, it had grown so much it was overflowing the pot and had "aloe vines" growing down the side, outside the pot. (I really should have transplanted it about 6 months ago.)

My one little sprig of aloe turned into 5 full size plants, 2 small planters and another full size planter that's up in our bedroom (not in the picture.) Crazy, I know, but I wanted to share with you. Aloe is a heaven sent plant, honestly I love it... from cuts to burns, it's amazing for chapped lips and dry skin. I love it... seriously, even Chris will testify to how bizarre my love of Aloe is.

It felt sooooooo good to get my hands in the dirt. Really, at least it's my little patch of sunshine during this cold winter.

Hope you are all having a loving, green day! Lots of love from our sunny corner of the world to yours!! ♥

So here's my after picture of most of my plants.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Good Morning all our sweeties in Kenosha & Union Grove! Does anybody have sweet plans for the day... breakfast in bed, box 'o chocolates, dinner and a movie... anything to share the wonderful love? We just want to wish everybody a warm, snuggly, wonderful day! I love showing the love... so next to Christmas, this is one of my favorite holidays!

Give an extra kiss, lots of extra hugs and make sure to give the pups & ferrets a few extra treats (they need to feel the love too!) :)

Love you all! XOXO,

Happy Weekend!

What a gorgeous day out! It's such a tease as we all know that we're still in winter and I'm sure have many more snowfalls and cold temps to endure.

But today, is just beautiful! I hope everybody gets to get outside and breathe in the wonderful, warm fresh air!

So what am I doing sitting at the computer, right? LOL... I'm off to enjoy the sunshine!

Lots of Love to all!! XOXO,
