• Marjorie K. Daugherty Conservatory, a top Omaha attraction!

    Travel: Marjorie K Daugherty Conservatory

    Marjorie K Daugherty Conservatory is one of Omaha’s top attractions. It’s full of so many beautiful plants and a cozy cafe. Plus, it just flat out smells awesome. Okay, let’s check out some photos. One of my favourite things about visiting conservatories (we have an awesome one in Edmonton!) is seeing the grown up version of the plants we have at home. An elephant’s foot is a great example – we have 3 and they’re oh, so tiny. Marjorie K Daugherty Conservatory Photo time! This…

    Project: Plants 4.0

    Plants 4.0 – check out how big some of our houseplants are getting! A while back I shared a project about plants and the little guy below was all stringy. Well, now, he’s bunched up and full of life. He recently got a spring cut, just to keep him healthy. Okay, let’s check out some of these houseplants – especially compared to the original post, the 2.0, and the 3.0 – plants rock! Plants 4.0 This guy on the left was a Christmas present to…

    Project: Plants 3.0

    Plants 3.0. As I’m sure most of you know, plants come and go. They grow, they die, and sometimes you need to cut them back like the banana tree for them to grow healthier. Well, last year I shared plants 2.0 with you so I thought it was time for a little plant action. Let’s check out some of these beautiful houseplants. Plants 3.0 This guy is huge! I got him back in December 2018 (maybe 2017, nah, I think 2018) as a stocking stuffer…

    Project: Plants 2.0

    Plants 2.0. That’s right – here’s a little update on our plant project blog post from last October. I’ll share some of the plants from last year and how they’re doing now and also share a couple of new plants that are loving life on the acreage. Plants This fire stick guy loved his greenhouse life with his red tips and all. Well, now, he loves the south facing windows and all the light the sun has to offer. Oh, and he loves it so…

    Project: Plants

    Plants! We love plants around our house. Well, in all fairness, Bryce loved plants long before I knew how awesome they were. He bought our very first ficus (I forgot a photo – silly me) about 9 years ago and it’s still going strong. It’s almost as tall as me – so neat. About a year ago I shared a post on pottery – we took a pottery class and made a handful of pots. Well, I wanted to share a little updated on some…

    Travel: Muttart Conservatory

    Last week I shared our visit to the Alberta Legislature Building – doing some travelling in our own town (well, about 45 minutes away). This weekend I’m sharing a little visit we had to Edmonton’s delightful conservatory – the Muttart Conservatory. Four beautiful pyramids, each a different climate: arid, temperate, tropical and then a feature pyramid. Muttart Conservatory First, admission is fairly reasonable. It’s $12.50 per adult, yet when I went with my dad and step-mom the lady at the desk was so kind she…

    Project: Pottery

    Project pottery. Sounds fun, right? Well, it is! When I gave you some of the updates in the Summer is Here post I totally forgot to mention that Bryce and I took a pottery class this past spring. 6 classes, each 3 hours long. When we first stopped by the studio I was really curious how many pieces average students can complete in the 6 classes – the teacher’s response was a modest 3-6. Well, 6 classes and 18 hours later we’ve got 20 pieces…
