Plant Boot Holders

Spring is in the air. We all had enough of that long wintertime weather, now it’s time to add color back to our homes and outdoors. A quick and easy way to do this is with a method called boot plant holders. I’m sure most of us have kid or adult boots lying around somewhere. Now, is the time to get them out, wash them off, and make them ready for display.

Everyone in the family can take a turn at decorating their own boot. One can use paint that is designed for the material in which the boot is made of. Make it colorful, add ribbons, this would be a time to be creative in a free-for-all way.

Next is to decide what type of plant do you want to put in your new holder. It can be anything from a colorful posies to a dark, green leaved fern plant. The one that you choose to plant can be either kept in its original container, if it is small enough for the boot, or fill the boot with planting soil and give your plant a new home. Make sure that the boot will not allow the water to escape that the plant needs for survival, rain boots work wonders.

It can be placed basically anywhere, maybe the front porch, around the garden perimeter, the deck of the pool, or you can even hang it on the fence lined up with other family members’ creations. Make sure if it needs sunlight that it is placed in an appropriate place that it receives light during the morning or evening hours. It is never wise to allow plants to get the full harsh exposure to the noontime sun.

Now that you have your plant in its place, sit back and enjoy. Don’t forget to water every day and give plant nutrients if it is looking a little weathered from being outdoors.

IZZIBELLA broken_by_izzibella_beau_5_1_14Could this be the record for the worst name to give a child, Ayma Kuntz. Welcome to Ayma’s world and the other Bayshore students as they contend with the drama, romance, and heat that fills their days. Broken – Book One of the Assumption Series centers on Ayma and Colton. It follows them through the first half of their senior year in high school. A year when life should be exciting, fun and happy…but sadly, it isn’t always like that.

Ayma comes from wealthy divorced parents. Her mother has made her life a living hell from the time she was born and named. Her life has been planned and designed to make her a replica of her mother; a socialite living on Bay Shore. Ayma is trying to break that mold. She wants to be nothing like her mother, but really doesn’t know who or what she wants to be. She has her limited friends, but lots of nemeses, low on the social ladder, and a name that will haunt her forever.

Then along comes Colton, He’s who every girl wants or every guy wants to be like. Colton is the opposite of Ayma, he’s not rich, has a supportive family, tons of people who want to be his friend, but Colton feels he is damaged at best. He has a past, one that includes time in jail.

Ayma and Colton seem to balance each other out, they aren’t supposed to be together, they are complete opposites, yet the attraction is one they can’t fight for long… Will his past catch up and tear them apart or will they be able to pull through all the obstacles created to break them apart?

Broken is how both of them feel. Can they help each other fix the damaged pieces of their lives or will unforeseen circumstances keep their lives forever shattered?
