Taking It Inside

Okay.  It was just last week. . . that I was explaining about The Itch.   About how our non-existent winter was bringing on the urge-to-garden much earlier than usual.  About how I've already been out pruning the roses and spring-cleaning my garden beds.  About how I really couldn't trust it, though.

And here you have it.

While still not bad for mid-February-in-Michigan, it's definitely not get-out-in-the-landscape weather! 

So, what's a gardener . . . with The Itch. . . to do?

Why, take it inside, of course!

Last weekend, I set up a little gardening right there in my kitchen.  It felt great to get my hands in some soil.  Even if it was just packaged potting soil!

I transplanted several plants.  New ones (like this new agave). . .

and in-need-of-repotting plants (like this formerly overgrown succulent).

I planted two new ivy topiaries.

Such an easy - and sort of charming - thing to plant.

And I had way too much fun playing around with terrariums.

I made a big mess. . .

but it was a delightful afternoon!

Almost as good as gardening outside.  And really. . . the best it's going to get in February!

And . . . here's this week's blooming agave update!

Absolutely crazy!
