  • I have a TON of plants inside, and wait for spring every year to start trading and seeing what's new at the stores. I love it. Repotting, rooting things, it's a very rewarding hobby! I've done my whole living room in plants, and even hung up a fluorescent to help with lighting! lol

  • OH YEAH....I transplanted some hostas the other day, which lead to beginning to pull the litle trees out of the beds that come every year, which lead to "turning" the dirt in a small bed, which lead to pulling out the window boxes and putting em up - which lead to cleaning the ponds and starting em up again (small fountain and a 4 feet kidney shaped one), which lead to dh saying "Want me to just pick up a pizza?" HAHA I love spring and summer!!!

  • Oh Yes - I put all my stuff out on April 1st but I live in South Florida! I have so far: Chives, Oregano, Basil, Rosemary, chamomille. I have delphinium, Zinnia, assorted wild flowers. Put some romaine lettuce out last night. Have some lavender and poppies waiting to be sown! Oops - also just put some sun flowers out also and my jasmine is a bloomin' like crazy!

  • And ruin the manicure? Just kidding. If I had a green thumb, I'd be right along with you.
