We headed out to the charity shop this morning on a day that has been pleasantly cool and breezy until it's roasting with the sun beating down upon my less-than-thrilled self. There were even a few sprinkles when we started out. Alas, they did not last long, but there are supposed to be more on the way. I live in hope.
As we got into town, the white of the ship really stood out against the grey sky.
We found what we'd been looking for at the charity shop--a plant pot that was the right size to re-pot our jade plant in. We've been checking and finding some nice pots that we've now used for other plants, but weren't having luck spotting a bigger pot until today. So, pots and plants in hand, this afternoon we went out did some potting.
I posted a while back about my aversion to pinching off bits of plants, even though I know it's good for them. I pinched off lots of coleus bits and as is my wont, I stuck some of the stems in water, where they grew roots pretty quickly. They have a new pot. I have more in the kitchen window. I might be living in a coleus forest, if this keeps up.
We'd like to find a philodendron to put in the living room, which does not get much light. We never see houseplants around here, though. It's possible that Aldi will have a selection of small cacti at some point. They have in the past. If they do, we will get some. We have a couple of small ceramic pots that would be perfect for them.
I took a couple of the plastic pots we had and planted some chard seeds in one and coriander in the other. Not sure how they'll do, but I already had the seeds, so no harm in trying!
I hope there are some good things growing in your part of the world today!
