It was a few weeks back, and my poinsettia started preparing for the holidays.

After a summer outside, my poinsettia from last year is right on schedule with the red leaves re-blooming for this holiday season.

From my home to another… from my house to another house-plant!!!
This stamped flower pot was snapped up during my Holiday Home Show
and quickly became the new “residence” for a beautiful blooming bromeliad.

I love when Mother Nature is so confident that these little plants will find a home wherever they can. Sitting in any little crack in the cement… and thriving on the east end apron of Chicago’s Navy Pier.

Sure, the sunrise was beautiful… but it was a fun bonus
to find these perky sunflowers blooming along Montrose Harbor.

It was a beautiful day yesterday at the Evanston Lakeshore Arts Festival. Incredible weather, great breeze, a LOT of fun customers and a fantastic “backyard” booth view of the lake!!! Looking forward to another fun day in Dawes Park again today. Booth #32 from 11:00am-6:00pm.

with some more beautiful flowers in the garden!
