I'm leaving on a plane to Austin, TX, in twelve hours. So, while pruning and watering all of my plants in preparation, I noticed one (which I'm propagating) has grown a tiny root stub (the big green one in the back, which is another one from my grandma). I can't wait to see how much it develops during the ten days I'm away. So, in hope of even more surprises, I took trimmings from some of my very favorites pets.

On a slightly different note—which is at the same time completely the same—after taking these photos, I turned to my computer and saw this on the screensaver:

aesthetician (noun)
1. a person who is knowledgeable about the nature and appreciation of beauty, esp. in art
2. a beautician

My heart melted, as it usually does. Isn't that what it's all about—beauty? Beauty in everything. Or is that just what I'm about? Beauty in all of everything.


  1. You are not alone..it is "The Beauty in Everything". Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

  2. Hej, just read your comments to my blog! I love these pictures above, especially the first one. Maybe you can tell me the name of the red-leaved plant on the right, I think it is gorgeous!

    Wish you a nice & sunny day!

  3. I am happy yo hear that your plants are doing well

  4. @Mdmslle. I think it's some variant of Iresine (Bloodleaf), although it's much more wild and viney than any others I've seen. One of the oldest and dearest in my collection.
