(First two important dates this week: I gave up drinking January 21 , 1981, and haven't had a sip or taste---won't eat anything cooked in alcohol--of any form of booze since then for 32 years--and on January 23 I will have lived in this apartment for 9 years--longest time I have lived in the same home!)

Anyone who knows me knows that I worship at the feet of Mother Nature and try to bring as much of her work into my place as I can. Wherever you look in my apartment you will see plants, most with flowers, EXCEPT in my bedroom! The reason for that is you can look as hard as you want but you will NOT see a bit of light in that room.

I sleep late in the morning--10 or 11 AM--(Hey, before you say anything, I go to sleep 2-4 AM) and can sleep through hurricanes, tornadoes, any kind of noise BUT a little bit of light and I am awake. When I moved into my current apartment January 23, 2004, the first thing I did was block my 3-4 windows (not sure as they have never been uncovered since that first day!) with heavy black double thick curtain and shower liners.

With the exception of that room no place is safe from plants and/or flowers where I live. In the picture above, the bottom section, the flower pot is on the bathroom window sill and the Cuban Butterfly along with the minature sun flower and mushrooms are flowering and it is January 20---winter!! So are the flowers in the top picture which are in the east window in the living room--Mother Nature is amazing and she is always surprising me!

    I can sleep with lights on and tv blasting. Husband requires darkness and silence. I love your flowers.

    Well done! I also have flowering plants in my house right now. That is not usually the case for me. I received a flowering plant last year, and it just bloomed again! I thought that was pretty neat. Enjoy your day, and keep up the great work!
