Planting is for the birds...

Is this not the sweetest little birdcage ever!
My last post I mentioned how I dressed up my Rosemary pot
and this is it!
Now if I can only get Miss Rosemary to Grow!
I find a few of my plants and neat little things like the birdcage at this
sweet little store called "The Red Onion".

While there yesterday I could not resist picking up another plant
Oh...and this bird "cage".
It's always fun to add little trinkets.
I have to be honest and tell ya'll
 this is my second attempt
at growing this type of plant
They are a bit picky.
Can you believe I do not know the name.
I guess I will have to find out and let ya'll know.
If you know the name
please share in the comments.
If you have any good advice
those would be nice too~
Do you dress up your plants?

  1. I don't really dress up my plants that I have inside but you gave me an idea!! I usually just do it to my outside plants. I have some little angel figurines I put in them.

  2. make me want to get on my herb garden!! MMMMmmm...cilantro, rosemary, parsley, thyme, dill, sage....ok. I am now hungry. :)


  3. I live in a flat so dont really get to grow much at home, but I work a nursery and in our growing area in the garden we have all sorts of quirky decorations, yours a just beautiful though!

  4. Oh, I am in love! Great way to dress up your houseplants!

  5. It is fabulous, how fun to dress up the plants.

  6. Oh, I love love love birds, and the tiny birdcage with the music sheet lining the bottom is scrumptious. Definitely love the other "birdcage," too, but I have no idea what that sweet little plant is.

    Susie, you are so inspiring!

  7. Very cute! I love the nest/bird additions to your plants, great idea!!

  8. THis is so cute!!
    Pop over and tell us your favorite colors and what emotions they bring out in you. I just did a post about the language of color and would love to hear everyones thoughts

  9. It looks like angel vine to me. One of my favorite plants! I love all the pretty little birds.

  10. Hi Susieness! Oh, look what you've been doing! I love these little bird things. I'm not sure, but I think that little plant looks like 'baby tears'.
    Glad you're having such fun.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  11. Really love the bird garden I'm inspired to start my herb garden!

  12. Susie, that is the sweetest little birdcage, ever! It's wonderful how you dress up your plants, your so clever :) I do hope both your plants thrive for you.

  13. Love the ideas. I am having a little get together soon and something like what you have put together would be great for a table centerpiece. Hope you are having a great weekend! Jackie

  14. what a sweet little bird cage...just too cute! i am so ready to dig in the dirt. however, spring itsn't here yet so i will just have to play with my house plants. repotting. i may have to 'steal' your idea and put some eggs in one.

  15. we are quite partial to birdies around here...i love that little bird in the birdcage!! and so much less mess than a real bird

  16. Oh My! When I saw the title of your post I was so worried the birds had gotten to your new seedlings! My little sister just had this happen to her this last week (it's hot here in AZ and we can already have our plants growing outside). This is her first garden and she is so sad about it. I am happy to see this was not what is happening to your plants! YAY!!

  17. Hi, It looks like an angel vine to me. If it makes you feel any better. Mine did not do well either and I usually do really well with plants.
    Be Well,

  18. What a sweet bird cage. You are always so clever with your decore. Your little plant looks just like the one I picked up at the Flower show ~ it's from the Ivy family and it's called Hedera Helix {this is the info from the plant tag}

    Have a wonderful weekend~

  19. So stinkin cute...My adorable, talented friend...:) I love it!

  20. Such a great idea! I have been reading all your olds posts - I am so behind!! Love the new tags. I also decided to be a follower so I never miss anything your doing!!
    Great job! I always enjoy my visit here!

  21. Too cute! My sister dresses up all her plants!

    m ^..^

  22. Congratulations! I have awarded you a Beautiful Bloggger Award! Come on down for all the details! Thanks for being so inspiring.

  23. Looks really good. I wich she would get some more cages. I really would like one too.

  24. How sweet - I barely get the plants planted, let alone dressing them up!

  25. I LOVE how you have dressed up your plants. I don't grow any inside because of the cats but I do try to dress up my outdoor ones.

  26. That little birdcage is so darling, Susie! The Red Onion is a beautiful place! Love how you dressed up the plants! Love the tags and the faux wreath from the previous post!

    Have a lovely Sunday!


  27. Do I dress up my plants? HA!!! I'd have to HAVE plants!!!

  28. I love the bird cage and that itty bitty bird! Send it to me! {It was worth a try!}

  29. You are ready for spring, aren't you. You make me long for some warm weather were we can get outside and start planting flowers and shrubs. We have a new house and not one thing in the yard.

    Maybe spring is on its way. We have had sunshine for 4 days in a row. We haven't seen sun in months.

  30. Simply adorable, Susie! I love the dress up and yes I do mine outside...I don't do much inside but I love Spring and all the herbs I get to have...I will share later when mine are all out and going. I did buy some lavendar over the weekend and have to repot it this week.

  31. That is FAB! What a clever idea for screens. Your blog is wonderful (you probably already know that, but I thought I'd tell ya anyway). I just stumbled across it today. I am a new follower. I have enjoyed scrolling around.

  32. Ur good, something about that plant says tender. I'll be looking for a copycat in my neck of the woods this spring.

  33. Yes, that HAS to be the cutest, sweetest birdcage EVER! I love it!

    My sister says I have a brown thumb since I let die anything I've tried to grow. : )

  34. very cute!! i'll definitely be using your idea! thanks.

  35. This post is exactly what I am interested. we need some more good information. Please add more good information that would help others in such good way.
