A few days ago, I attempted the impossible (for me). I actually replanted the morning glories that I started from seed. Okay, the impossible part of it really is the part in which this plant has not yet died. I have the blackest thumb ever, and am amazed that I have not yet managed to kill this plant (or the lemon tree out on my balcony, for that matter). I guess it helps that morning glories grow like very pretty weeds... Even so, I'm still impressed that it's still alive. So, here's a picture of the plant before the re-potting.
And here it is after. I was afraid that I tore too much of the root structure when I pried it out of the tiny pot, so I threw a few more of the seeds in the pot after I piled the new dirt over the stumpy roots. And they've already sprouted. So, I am predicting good things for this plant...which might be my downfall. I should have learned by now not to be so optimistic, right? Oh...and the greatest part? This was from a $1 grow kit from Target!
I've been on a roll since the knitting class. I finished the scarf that I started while in class, and need to block it to give it a normal shape. While I haven't gotten to that yet, I did manage to hit the craft store and get some new yarn and chunky needles. And with a little inspiration from crazy aunt purl (on whose site I spend WAY too much time...), I started this scarf -------------------------->>> The pattern is a takeoff on the pattern halfway down this post, and so far is coming out great!
Ah.....I'm so easily amused...and impressed by myself.
