Green Paws Indoors!

With the freezing temps, our green paws have moved indoors this week.
We started some Paperwhite bulbs and an Amaryllis bulb.

It's going to be a red-white combo flower...Can't wait to see!
This is just ONE week "Out of the Box"! 

We gathered up some interesting leaves off the ground,
for some leaf pressing.

I'm going to use this dictionary...I don't need it anyway,
cuz I r a gud spellir.

You just put the leaf between papers and close the book!
Change the paper every few days...don't use your favorite book, because the pages might get some moisture on them.

Happy Indoor Gardening!



  1. Lady says she hasn't pressed leaves for years. She wished she had thought of it sooner, but the snow is falling here and the best leaves are long gone. Have a great day. Lee and Phod

  2. We see our Christmas cacti getting ready to bloom, but the orchids have decided to take a rest. Mom says she will have to hunt for some leaves tomorrow so the grandbipeds can do some leaf pressing too.

  4. What are you going to do with the leaves after they are done being pressed?'


  5. They'll make great decorations for your Thanksgiving table. SHE's switched to an e-reader, might make pressing anything difficult. BOL!

  6. Happy indoor gardening to you Wyatt. Stay warm and cosy. Have a serene Sunday and get in some big easy today.
    Best wishes Molly

  7. Oh leaf pressing. MOM says it's fun fun. I like leaf crunching myself.

  8. Our mom is always talking about forcing bulbs but she never seems to get her act together. We can't wait to see yours in bloom, Wyatt! You sure do fun stuffs at your house!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  9. That's a very interesting bulb plant. Nothing like i've seen before.

  10. We have a leftover amaryllis from last winter that we 'hope' blooms. Your's looks much more likely!

  11. Mom is very worried about some of plants - she wasn't able to get them inside before the cold hit....we know the ferns are doomed we just hope the gardenias make it

  12. Brrrrr its cold here too! Mom planted one of those Amry plant things, it bloomed but she didn't replant it (brown thumb). Love Dolly

  13. Indoor gardening is a very good idea! Your sooo smart!

  14. I think I better pull out the dictionary too

  15. I better try that. I like leaves! Have a wonderful Sunday!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  16. What do you do with your pressed leaves, Wyatt? Just wondering if you use them for something special. I agree, u r a gud spellir! Can't wait to see the flower when it blooms.

  17. We definitely need to start doing some indoor gardening here, too! I don't think there's going to be anything green outside for quite a while!


  18. We almost bought one of those amaryllis things the other day...they are so very pretty!! You do a much better job at gardening than we do!! xo Chloe and LadyBug

  19. oh pressing leaves I used to love to do that

  21. Who needs a dictionary? ;)

    I forgot about pressing leaves :P

  22. Our Amarayllis looks not so good as yours, its more a small thingy here :o) Guess that we found a pressed leaf in a book that was nearly prehistoric. My mom made it as she was in elementary school and it was as good as new...probably a magic leaf...
