a planting day
we spent yesterday planting all kinds of seeds and plants, we have a banana tree seed started- it says it can get to be 15 feet tall-yikes, have to keep that thing trimmed-. We transplanted our Australian pine seedlings which are doing really nicely, they grow a bit slower then the bananas and will eventually go outside someday. We also planted an amaryllis bulb and some nasturtium seeds should brighten up the place through the cold/icky wet dampish days ahead. Pretty soon we can bring in some forsythia and force it into bloom in a vase of warm water, that is so pretty and very springy.
