Life in the low desert.

Patio flowers in January.

Look at these adorable pots I scored as a Christmas present from Mom:

I love them! She got them from Chive.com. They have lots of beautiful gifts.

I also got some cuttings from Mom’s plants, so yesterday I finally potted them. I’m very happy with the outcome.

Here they are in their new home, in front of an east window:

Thanks, Mom!

Heyyyy, look who decided to bloom on Christmas Eve:

Phoenix is weird.

I don’t think I’m going to regret harvesting the last of the basil and parsley today.

Phoenix is COLD!!!! Like, ridiculously cold even if I am a big baby about the cold now.

I don’t know what my garden will look like come morning, so I’m glad I heard the freeze warning on the radio on my way home from work. Now on to bigger decisions – pesto? Caprese salad?

My poor lemon tree. He’s all beat up and slightly depressed, he lost all of his leaves, and he’s increasingly alarmed about his future.

He and I have so much in common.

On the bright side, I now finally know he’s a lemon and not a lime tree.

I love these little guys!

For those days in between when your farmers’ market flowers have died and your next opportunity to replace them, a nice green bouquet can work wonders to fill the gap:

Plus, they’re rooting, so there’s that bonus as well.

Bouquets feed the soul. No one ever said they had to be flower bouquets.

I guess I have basil babies (roughly 12 feet from the mother plant) now.

About Me

Hi! My name is Liza. Welcome to my blog and thanks for visiting! I'm a Midwestern gal now living in Arizona, after many years of living in and owning a plant care business in New Mexico.

Plants are living, breathing creatures, and if they're indoor plants, they are 100% dependent on human care. They cannot water themselves.

I can beautify your home, office, or patio with plants and flowers. I have 13 years of experience growing plants, and friendships.

Please let me know if you have questions or if you would like help with your plants or garden. You can reach me at lizatheplantlady (at) gmail (dot) com or follow me on Twitter, Lizawheeler7.

All photos are mine unless otherwise noted. All content is also entirely my hard work. If you'd like to use any content or photos, all you have to do is ask. If you take without asking, you are a thief. And thieves suck. So don't suck. We have a deal? Good.
