Azalea

Azalea are lovely plants. In the summer time the gorgeous blossoms almost or completely obscure the plant.

Mini Silk Floral of Roses

A prosperous 2017 and many moments of happiness.

To make mini silk floral arrangements I use small bowls varying in a diameter of 2 in. (approx 5 cm.) to 3.5-4 in. (approx. 9 cm.) The small containers I get at a Goodwill store.

First image: Nine roses, the inner circle has three- and the outer circle has six roses. Around the roses I inserted ivy leaves, lavender and pink flowers to finish.  Used a 3 inch bowl.

Second image: A close up of the rose.

Third and fourth image: Of the remainder of the silk flowers I made a second arrangement in an egg cup. Same arrangement taken from two different sides.  Used an egg cup.

Christmas 2016

Merry Christmas

“For unto us a Child is born; unto us a Son is given……  Isaiah 9:6KJV.  The Son looked after mankind; He sacrificed Himself on the cross for all who believe on His Name.  Prophecy fulfilled.

the second part of verse 6 of Isaiah 9KJV and the government shall be upon His shoulder and His Name shall be called Wonderful Counsellor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.” This part of the Prophecy has to be fulfilled as yet by the Return of LORD.

White Christmas Cactus

My white christmas cactus was blooming about two months too early.  Spontaneously. September actually is the month to give the cactus plant rest, in a cool environment  and not too much water. The buds can propagate and these plants usually are blooming in November. Then the cactus is given sufficient water and plant food is given about once a week or ten days.

Mini Silk Arrangements

For these mini silk arrangements I used candle holders.

The candle holders and other mini containers for making silk arrangements I go to a garage sale or browse in a Goodwill store.

Mini silk arrangements do fit  almost anywhere in your home. In a windowsill,  on a bookshelf, or on a dressing table. They can be placed on a etagere and are also a nice give-away, what I often do.
