Happy Holidays!

Have a Happy Christmas and Merry New Year from the Princesshotflash Homestead! A flora treat from Cora’s garden, poinsettias from the year before, doubled in size, with beautiful blooms. Her green thumb is at it again.

Cora’s garden: Stick Garden

Currently in Cora’s garden there are 2 sections of sticks stuck in pots. All bougainvillea from when we did the spring trim the front bougies (as mom calls them).

Cora is growing sticks

When I first got home these sticks in a pot made me laugh. I would ask what they were and if they were dead. They are just of funny looking to have in the someone’s garden.

Well, my mom takes the trimmings and give them a good soak in water then sticks them in some rootone and put it in a pot a soil with rock for support. It takes a long time to root but it does happen.

I think this is a flower on stick–haha
leaves sprouting

I have to give it to her, she has a green thumb as she can make a stick with rocks and sprout leaves and flowers.
