When you think of the typical houseplant, you may picture a light green fern with dozens of dangling fronds. Or perhaps you envision a colorful African violet flourishing in a small container on your coffee table. But for your next houseplant, why not go with an unconventional option? Tillandsdia, also known as air plants, are growing in popularity with people who want attractive houseplants that require very little attention. This week's post is all about air plants, how to care for them, and how they can add interest to any room in a home.

The short month of February has two beautiful birth flowers: the violet and the primrose. This pair of delicate flowers serves as a reminder to me that spring will be arriving soon. Each February, I like to throw a "soon-to-be-spring party" for my friends. I always put a purple tablecloth on my dining room table along with several vases of violets. They give a springy feel to my entire apartment. So for my blog this week, I did a little research to learn more about these two February blooms. Enjoy!

As I look around my snowy neighborhood, I see a lot of trees and plants that have gone dormant. As temperatures start to drop, these plants go into a kind of deep sleep so they can survive through the cold-weather months. Like many of us, these trees and plants are waiting for winter to pass so they can become more active! This week, I thought I'd take a closer look at dormant plants in the wintertime.

So I decided to look into how I could strengthen my immune system, and here's what I found. Enjoy!

Did you know that most flowers have a special meaning attached to them? Consider some meaningful flowers that would make a great gift for a friend or loved one around the holiday season.

Photo via http://ow.ly/VZ7ls

One of my favorite things to do at this time of year is drive out to a local tree farm with friends and choose my Christmas tree. I love seeing all of the families walking through the fields to find a lovely tree for their home. As a kid, my family always chose a Scotch pine. I've continued that tradition, and I always seem to find one that fits perfectly into my living room. This week, I thought I'd take a look at the different types of Christmas trees as well as how to care for them. Enjoy!
