To Pothos or not to Pothos my Neon Lovely House Plant

All kidding aside I just love this plant. I purchased this beauty, believe it or not, at my local hardware store. This Pothos was a tiny little plant when I first purchased it a few months ago. The color of this beauty is what drew me to it. I love the neon green coloration. I like to think of it as a chartreuse with a little zing. Firstly, I am extremely proud that it’s still alive. Yes, occasionally some of my plants transition to the other side despite my well intentioned efforts. Nevertheless, this Pothos has not only survived it...

Ficus Benjamina, commonly known as weeping fig

I thought I would share with you my new baby, this beautiful wind swept looking ficus. I began with seven cutting however only one took. I have planted my baby in an italian made coned shaped italian terracotta pot. For some reason I am partial to these conned shaped terracotta pots. I have placed the little ficus on a southwest facing window. Here’s hoping she enjoys her view. I sure hope she thrives. Beside the baby ficus is a picture I cherish of my beautiful Zoey. Zoey was a red and white Basenji who stole my heart the second we...

Sunday driving in the Cochella Valley taking in some much needed vitamin 'D' when I happened to come across a little collectible shop. The valley is peppered with all sorts of collectible gems. As I meandered through the aisle I could feel my collectible senses guiding me (Spider-Man has spidy senses and I have collectible senses) towards this handsomely designed casserole pot. Yes, pots can be handsome if designed properly and right in front of me was such a specimen. A 1934 Wagner Ware casserole pot - a collectible one at that. Ever wondered what that lonely “O” meant at...

The Mojave Desert is blooming viva Palm Springs, California

The Mojave Desert is blooming. The rain fall, which has finally put an end to a multi-year drought throughout California, has finally brought life back to the Mojave Desert. This blooming purple cacti with its bright yellow flower greeted me when I awoke this morning. These prickly beauties with their beautiful coloration of can be found peppered throughout the desert. I feel a road trip coming on. I think it’s time for a drive through the famed Route 66, also known as the Main Street of America and the Mother Road, to take in the beauty of these prickly plants.

Romano beans in tomato sauce for rainy nights

It's been raining all day in Vancouver today not to mention all day yesterday as well; So, That's put me in the mood for some comfort food. I decided to prepare a nice bean, potatoes and broccoli dish which will go nicely with a mellow merlot i just happen to have in my wine cellar - ok, it's a wine fridge if you must know. I chose Romano beans for this recipe because that's what I had in my pantry. I usually use dry beans and on occasion when I'm pressed for time I will use canned beans. I pressure...
