Mystery plant in my office. It is sad and has skinny legs it can barely support. The multicolored round leaves have a succulent quality to them, although they are thin. This was a cheap plant gifted to me about 6 years ago. At one point the branches stood up and didn’t dangle. It had small yellow flowers when it was given to me. #PlantID

#Seattle - I'm officially confirmed to lead an edible weeds workshop on Feb 8 at the Meadowbrook Community Center. Even in the middle of winter there are lots of nutritious wild greens; I'll show you a few that are safe and delicious for beginning foragers.

This is part of the Sustainable NE Seattle Hands-On Skills Fair, a full day of free workshops on practical skills for community resilience and lower-impact living. Trying to find a non-FB link for it, but for now:

I have this Viola, V. 'Callisto Denim', in a hanging basket next to my front door. Gorgeous colour and very cheering.

This is the view from one of the stairwells in my work building. It takes my breath away every time I can see these mountains. I don't feel like the photo quite captures it but I wanted to give you a glimpse.

Dichrostachys cinerea (Goya Khair), is another of the useful plants that you will find at the Aravalli Biodiversity Park in Gurgaon. It also goes by the name Sicklebush.

The park itself is a young, rejuvenated forest and should be on your list if you are in Delhi/NCR.

Dear #India tooters, especially photographers: the #florespondence from my latitude gets very thin at this time of year. Any chance you could add some from yours?

death, joke but then a serious link 

next year, I plan on planting more in bigger containers with better soil. I guess I've learned my lesson. one day... I'll be swimming in strawberries...

this one is doing its best, too, for its smaller container and probably less suitable soil.

the majority of the strawberry plants haven't made it but this one is doing well! 😍

I'm particularly fond of the blue sages, including Salvia uliginosa.

Despite it's common name, Bog Sage, it actually prefers a Mediterranean climate. I've planted it in my Damson Border - let's see how the very non-Med Sheffield climate suits it ;)

We got an astonishingly long flowering out of our dahlias this year because November’s weather was so weird. But all that lives must die and last week’s frost saw to that. #florespondence

partner's sister video called their mom, who i was sitting with, and her toddler saw me and said "it's jade!!" and waved to me 😭
they started talking and little one interrupted to say "I wanna say hi to jade!!" again and then she waved to me for a long time and then even blew me a kiss 😭❤💕
i was honestly surprised she even remembered me! made my day!
