day 9 - catching up.

oh hello, goodbye weekend. wasn't it over in a flash! oh and little to no blogging on my behalf! slack, slack, slack!!
i've also been slack on the giveaway front! i was supposed to draw it last night at 6 and completely forgot!! i think i might extend it til next sunday, same time, same place ok? i'll set myself a phone reminder so i won't forget again!

anywho, the 9th day of christmas! i was recovering from my morning of pampering...
and also heading to work.
not a lot of christmassy type stuff happening so i thought i'd show you my violet!

this little beauty has moved with us on our last house move and has just gone from strength to strength.
it was flowering when i bought it, reduced to less than a dollar at k-mart if my memory serves me correctly, and since taking up residence on the kitchen table, has been in flower continuously for what seems an age!
it got some more room to grow here and seems to be loving it :D

do you have any special plants that have a story? i'd love to hear!

also, don't forget to enter my giveaway!

I'm not bad in the garden but for the life of me I cannot get violets to flower and I cannot get a rose to grow for love nor money.

My favourites are the orchids about the place. I do nothing and there they are year after year. You've gotta love that. I can feel a 'replant' coming on soon, though as they are all about to burst out of their pots!! x
