My winter jungle

Orchids and geraniums crowd the table in our library at home. The IKEA chair next to the flowers proves to be a popular spot to sit and read or knit. A couple more months until we can plant flowers outside!

  11. I think these are the first geraniums I see indoors. :-) As to this kind of orchids I keep them in my living room year round, too cold outside for them in winter and too hot and dry in summer.

  12. I love my reading/knitting corner, too. I feel like cattle, going to my stall every night to cozy up. ;) So nice to know you've been to Switzerland!

  13. Thats a beautiful library. Very pleasant and relaxing place to read.

    Thanks for visiting my Chennai blog and my husband's Cruise blog.

    I've been in India for over 4 years and your Hindi and local language is much better than mine.

  15. Beautiful! Must be a nice place to stay while reading a book and sipping a cup of tea.

    I have tried putting orchids inside our house but it get withered.

    Thank you so much for the birthday greetings!
