A Room with a View


My friend Tracy inspires me. She inspires me to be a better mother, to be creative with my home, to get involved with our community and to simply be happy. It is because of her that we've invested time in a school that our child does not attend. She accomplishes so much it makes you want to do something as well.

Yesterday was her birthday. A plan to pick up tree rounds for the school turned into a morning together at Theodore Payne. You can't go there without getting something and we ended up getting plants for our homes.... which got me to start working on the area in front of our bedroom window. I weeded and watered and just when I was about to start planting the P needed me so it's on hold until tomorrow.


I bought four different plants. All attract butterflies, hummingbirds and regular birds. Teodore Payne makes it easy to find plants for your specific needs. The goal for this space is to invite wild life so we can watch it from our bed. A wild life show in bed! What could be better?

These are what I got:
Yerba buena (Satureja douglasii)

Persnickety Pink (Stachys ajugoides)

Hummingbird Sage (Salvia spathacea)


Spice Bush (Calycanthus occidentalis)
Three out of the four selections smell good just running your hand through them. Every morning I open our windows to get fresh air into our bedroom and to get rid of what I call the "sleepy juice" smell....which all bedrooms have when not ventilated. I think these plants will help make the air sweeter. Theodore Payne is having a sale in October. I will be there to get more!
