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.
(One of these is for you, Mom!)
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!
I cannot WAIT to see what it does next!
