Saturday Sparks Link Party 538

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 538! 

 Starting off today's party with a little transformation!

Pothos Transformation at Pieced Pastimes

I shared a 'summer vibes' photo back in July that included this Pothos plant.

At the time, someone commented about my 'sparse' plant and this was my reply:

"As for my 'sparse plant', there is a little back story to it. I had a beautiful, lush pothos plant for some 10+ years now that I carefully tended to. For some unknown reason, it started dying and no amount of extra love and care seemed to help. I finally gave up the battle and let her go, but repotted some of her clippings into other pots and this happens to be one of them. Yes, it may be a bit sparse right now, but I have high hopes that she will grow and thrive like her mother before her." 

Fast forward to now and she is doing beautifully with some gentle coaxing on my part.

And this crazy plant lady is very pleased with this circle of life moment.

  4. Hi Suzanne, thank you so much for including my November Journaling Prompts post with this weeks features! I've been looking for a good bread recipe so I'm going to give the easy rustic farm bread a try from Abeille Living. Thanks again and I hope you have a fantastic weekend

    1. Happy to feature your Journaling Prompts post, Maria! You always have the best cue's for journaling. All my best ~ Suzanne.

  5. I always look forward to visiting this beautiful party! Thanks so much for the nod to my steam canning tutorial! This week I've shared how to use seaweed in the garden (harvested right down in your neck of the woods!) as well as foraging and using juniper. Have a great week!

    1. Awe, thanks Suzan! It's always nice to hear that people are enjoying the party. Thanks for sharing your tutorial, so much good information to know. Looking forward to reading your seaweed post. Have a beautiful week ~ Suzanne.

  6. Suzanne, I'm right there with you as a crazy plant lady, excitedly watching my cottage landscape grass growing one year later (and sharing, lol).
    Colorado is beautiful, and that fall trip punctuated with a hot springs spa looks amazing. I have a similar sweet potato casserole, and it's really like a dessert, so rich. But it's the pumpkin risotto that had my attention. It looks like an amazing meal in and of itself. Pinned, and thank you for hosting this weekend party. I hope you enjoy this weekend.

    1. There are quite a few of us 'crazy plant ladies' out there, Rita. Glad to know I'm in good company. It is fun to watch the progression of our plantings from year to year, such as your lovely cottage landscape. The featured posts are all wonderful and yes, the pumpkin risotto looks like a perfect fall dish. Sending you much sunshine ~ Suzanne.

  7. I love your plant story! I'm so happy you have propagated you original and it looks lovely. Thanks for hosting. XO- MaryJo

    1. Thanks, MaryJo! I am really pleased that I was able to save my original pothos and now have 3 separate pots of them, each one thriving and growing beautifully. A small victory yes, but one that makes me grin from ear to ear. Happy Fall ~ Suzanne.

  8. Such a beautiful plant!


    1. Thanks, Alexandra! I am please with her progress. All my best ~ Suzanne.

  9. The plant looks beautiful. Thanks for hosting and I hope that you have a wonderful week.

    1. Thanks so much! My little pothos plant makes me smile. Happy Fall ~ Suzanne.

  10. Your TLC paid off, your plant looks so strong and healthy now. I could sure use a crazy plant lady. I inherited two plants from my mom that were gorgeous until my brown thumbs got at them. If only I inherited her green thumb.

    1. Thanks, Marie! I am really happy with how my pothos is doing. My gardening skills are improving with time and patience, but it's definitely a work in progress. I do love my plants, but have a ways to go before I'd consider myself having a green thumb. Many smiles ~ Suzanne.
