On the kitchen windowsill


 On the kitchen windowsill, there is a bit of the outdoors in a green ceramic pot.



In the last year or two I've learned that I love ferns.


They seem to thrive on my benign neglect and gazes of admiration.

 
Ferns growing right beside the kitchen sink make doing the dishes a fascinating episode. It's like a walk in the woods without leaving the house.


What's growing on your windowsills this autumn?

Lovely photos, Sharyn! We have a "volunteer" fern growing out of a wall in our garden. I hope it returns in the spring.

Nothing is growing on our windowsill. lol I have a metal chicken, a metal double miniature bucket, a mason jar full of found items from nature, wooden spoons, candles, and antique implements. It sounds like a mish-mash, but it's fun!

Hugs!

Dear Sharyn,

What a lovely fern you have! Right now my windowsill is crammed with thyme, geraniums, comfrey, a kalanchoe, and one more plant that I can't remember what it is. :) I need some hooks up above so I can have room for a drain board there again!

Love,

Marqueta
