Variegated Ivy and Fern

This was the scene from the window the other morning.

So, I continued to tend to the houseplants.

The fern got a shower.

The variegated ivy got a trim. (It’s friend looks a little aslant.)

I watched Mr. Green Thumb e-How video about variegated ivy. (Stan DeFreitas, also known as Mr. Green Thumb, has experience as an urban horticulturist working for the Pinellas County Extension Service and has taught horticulture at the St. Petersburg College.)

I’ve got to get out more.

Remember Mr. Green Jeans from the Captain Kangaroo tv show?

Your house plants look very healthy. I guess a shower and a trim does the trick.

I love the wall hanger you put your plants on. It makes the ivy look really good.
