The past week has flown by. I have been busy working, painting, cleaning and hosting some delightful guests, my brother in law and his wife. They left earlier today and I will miss them, such refreshing company. I was so glad they came, it gave me incentive to dig in and clean out an area I have wanted to for a long time but something always seemed more important.
This afternoon I am trying to update my website and figure out how to add Linky Friends or whatever it is called to my blog. I have meant to check out Google + as well, I just have not had time so today is dedicated to online chores, so to speak.
My seedlings and cuttings on my plant rack are growing very well.
Here is my geraniums when I first potted them up on February 7th.
And here they are today.
The yellow paper is a sticky trap for the fungus gnats. They come in the potting soil but the yellow sticky traps work great for keeping them under control.
This is a gorgeous Trumpet Vine, I don’t seem to have great success in growing it up here but I am going to put one or two of these in large pots and move them into the greenhouse in winter and out to my back deck in summer so I can get it to bloom for me. Just down the hill half an hour these flourish and can even become invasive but up here the winters are just too cold for it I guess.
And if you remember my Christmas Cactus post.. here are a few photos of how they are coming along.
It went from 2 having new growth to all of them. They were so easy to start, I did not expect success with every cutting but every one of them has taken off.
I do believe I have plenty of cactus now. I have another tray full of these as well from other cuttings.
The past two days were so lovely and warm, mid 60’s for a high, feels like Spring. I am still working on filling my raised bed, it is deep! Once filled though it will be great.
Now I need to get back to my online chores. Enjoy your fabulous Saturday!
