November's Birthflower: The Colorful Chrysanthemum

Photo via http://ow.ly/UkNi9

If you have a birthday coming up sometime this month, don't be surprised if a friend gives you a gathering of colorful chrysanthemums. The chrysanthemum, or "mum," is the official birth flower of November! These flowers are a familiar sight on front porches and in window boxes all over the country at this time of year. Personally, I like to put a large pot of decorative mums on my front steps every autumn. They never fail to light up my day. So I thought I'd use my post this week to celebrate the chrysanthemum. Enjoy!

How To Keep Your Houseplants Clean And Extend Their Lifespan

Photo via http://ow.ly/UfSkv

I'm the first one to admire a unique houseplant with colorful leaves or flowers. I love to see the striking pink blossoms of a Christmas cactus, and I can never resist touching the soft leaves of a purple passion plant. But houseplants do a lot more than bring beauty into our homes. For one, they absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen into the air. Also, houseplants absorb airborne bacteria that reduce the quality of the air we breathe. Plus, a flourishing plant in a home or office can go a long way toward lifting a person's mood. Considering all of the wonderful things that houseplants do for us, I believe we owe them the best possible care. Along with giving them adequate water and sunlight, houseplants need to be kept clean. Today, I thought I'd share some simple ways to clean houseplants so you can enjoy them in your home for years to come.

Take one look around and you can see the fall season creeping in. Each day, I walk out of my home to find that a few more leaves on my favorite tree have turned reddish-orange. Around this time of year, people start talking about the autumnal equinox. It occurs on September 23rd this year in the Northern Hemisphere. This is when the sun shines directly on the equator, making day and night equal in duration for a short period of time. The autumnal equinox affects the earth and humans in many ways. Here are a few examples.
