A Plant Tour

So far all of my plants, except for the bee balm, have survived.  I have been weeding and watering, and chasing sunlight around with the potted plants.  Here is what’s growing:

Kalanchoe was a potted plant gifted from our neighbors before they left.

I believe this is the third year our clematis has come back, despite being trampled and covered with toys it still manages to spring up.

I believe this is a pumpkin plant, we did not plant it but are going to see what happens.  Also, some more smaller tomato plants.

I've decided I want more of these air plants all over the house.  For now we have just the one in the dining room.

Jade plants, succulents, my orchid (stick with never blooms anymore) and aloe plants in the living room.

Jade plants, succulents, my orchid (stick which never blooms anymore) and aloe plants in the living room.  They don’t get sunlight until I carry them outside.  These are my vampire plants. 

Planter in the front yard.  Chocolate mint, grapefruit mint and orange mint.  It smells really good.

I also put a plant in each of the kids room, Isabella picked an asparagus fern, Vita picked a small succulent and Blackburn got a Croton “Lauren’s Rainbow” for his room.  Any house/outdoor plants that you have had a good experience with (especially ones that love the shade) let me know.  I am always on the lookout for new plants.
