I bought this strawberry plant some time ago. I know one plant does not give many berries but the plant looks nice. Now the berries begin to ripen. So, there is going to be a few ones for us each. Today when I surfed the internet I saw this cute strawberry shaped pot. It would be a cool, cute thing to have.
The plant and pot to the right are not mine. I shot the photo from my computer screen for you to see what I mean. If I sometime, somewhere happen to see one I will buy one.
We have three indoor green plants. They are quite new. I think we bought one in the end of last year and the two others in the beginning of this year. I hope they will last for a long time and that I have got the names right 🙂

Dear friends, in these times, stay safe.
The Fourth gorgeous winter day in a row. Not too cold, sunshine and only a little bit of snow. Enough to make everything so white and clean. Today there was frost flowers all over. It is quite hard to get good photos of them. I have tried so many times. But, nevertheless I always try again and again.
It was snowing yesterday. Not much but, enough to make it a bit slippery here and there. There still is some snow on the ground today but, tomorrow it’s going to rain and it will all be gone. Who knows when it will snow next time. I wish it will be for Christmas.
Two different kinds of tomatoes. The ones to the left are grown from seeds in a mini greenhouse I bought from Lidl in beginning/middle of March. The label says “lycopersicon esculentum marmande” At some point I was tempted to give up on them. But, didn’t. Now there are many green ones. In the other bucket are plants also bought from Lidl sometimes in the beginning of April. I forgot to read the label and have no idea what they are called. To me they look like regular tomatoes. Tomatoes I’m used to.
Guess what ! Yes, the thistle still is, saved by my husband, in the daylily flower bench. I wanted it away but he said let’s wait till it has flowered. I have to say the plant is decorative. And, bye the way, the creepy creeps have disappeared. Yay 🙂 I’m so excited for it to soon blossom in full bloom. Looking forward to then shoot more photos. I added a new category “thistle, thistles”. Makes it easier to look for the posts of it (and maybe later also other thistles)
I went to look for the caterpillar on the thistle plant. Yes, it’s still there. There also was a spider so I took a couple of photos. When editing I wondered what are those tiny black spots. I cropped it. Eeeek ! They are tiny creepy creeps. I know, they are so small but, I’m a wimp and the smaller a thing the more creepy to me. I told my husband to have the plant removed today. Anyway, the plant didn’t even belong in my day lily bench. Bye plant, bye tiny creepy insects.
Huge thistle and Jacky in my flower bench ! I will let it stay till it will bloom and I will be able to shoot some photos. Jacky loves to lay in the flower bench. The bricks and the chicken wire are there to stop him from digging around the day lilies.
