Well it is still freezing here in Tassie. The coldest winter for a very long time but I guess mother nature knows what she's doing. I am dreaming of blossom, sunshine on my back and the smell of spring's bulbs, the first signs of spring are slowly appearing.
I received this very special gift in the mail yesterday from Illene. I will treasure it always - Thanks so much for your thoughtfulness.
On Sunday I did indeed brave the cold weather and did some potting in readiness for some spring and summer colour. I also re-potted all of the aloe vera babies from my mother plant.
We had a breeze through built at the back of our house around 3 years ago made from cedar. It has castle doors at either end and provides a lovely indoor/outdoor undercover area to enjoy the warmer weather. The cats love it too as they can bask in the sun and bird watch. At either end is an undercover entrance area which I utilise for undercover plants. This is where I have put all of the newly potted baby plants.
Can you see the wine barrel in the corner???
Can you see the sick looking creeper in it?
That kinda happens when you don't water them for many months !! I am such a bad parent....... Hubby says I have a "gold" finger and that I can turn any green plant gold....... Rather uncharitable of him really - This one is still green !! You will be pleased to know that it has had a very big drink some new soil and a promise to keep a better eye on it. A Pinkie Promise.....
Don't forget that if you are going to the Craft & Quilt Fair on Friday that Jo and I will be there !! Look for the red balloons and the red polka dot bag - We won't be far away.
Oh and pop by Jo's blog tomorrow as it's her birthday - Don't tell her I told you.
