Gardening in America
House Plants
by Nancy Fletcher

House PlantsDallas, Texas left me with one great lesson, and this was the practice of illusion.  This culture was absolutely the pinnacle for capturing fineness of living. There was a great dedication on every side for working toward seeing to an  arrangement for orderly visual experiences.  As we go through this world each one of us has their own problems and duties, rare and of great importance to ourselves.  If we can look for ways to bring nature's  creation to our use for  lifting our spirits,  then we have an armor to fortify our mind. When circumstances become more difficult, sometimes, one just has to think about this a little more.

This is the reason for this small area in my home. It is in a middle room which is passed often on the way to other rooms. By placing this little world of green at this place during the winter months, there is a subtle and quick viewing of a fresh promise of spring.  The winter month's with less sunlight have been medically documented as to working against one's mental well being.  This light coming in the glassed door here happens because of the glass enclosed tiny atrium beyond that, my husband built for me. Even a small amount of light like this on a north room is welcome when one is shut in with chores, children, and wintertime work.

The tablecloth is a green plastic over another patterned green fabric. The plastic cloth cost me two dollars at the dollar store. The color is the thing. I,  at one time used grass green sheers over the windows but,  after 26 years they gave out, and I've never been able to find that same color again. It will pop up sooner or later though. The green light coming through the windows via the sheers makes the area even nicer.

Hobby Lobby has a number of small water fountains also, which could go here as well.  They are not expensive, some are for thirty (30) dollars.
