I was getting ready to start my day this morning when my next door neighbor called and asked if I wanted to go with her to The Natural Gardener. As I had been wanting to plant stuff this year, I jumped at the chance. I brought back little pots of dill, basil, catnip, lantana, and peppers. It was a delightful trip. Hoping some of my adventures in planting will take.

I also had my camera along. Look at some of the lovely things there!

           

           

          

          

I could wander out there for hours. But now I need to re-pot my herbs and get stuff done in the Library to make up for yesterday. I think that will be my top priority.

UPDATE ONE: Well, as is generally the case, I found three hours in one room didn’t work for me. More like an hour and a half…but I DID also get a short little piece written for a Reddit contest that I might expand into something gritty and post-apocalyptic later. So that’s something.

Here’s what I focused on:

And here is when I quit:

Plus, it took me about another 30 minutes to do this in the Front Hall:

As Newell thought the piece that was there was a little small and dark for the space. This is nice and airy. I would like to find some more of those connectors though…I swear I had some more around her somewhere…because I have a lot of the grid pieces left.

I do have some things that I think are designed to put shelves in the cubes, so I might do a couple of those too.

Anyway, between that two hours, the trip to the nursery (and I still need to go re-pot my plants) and the laundry in the dryer, I think that is a good day’s work.

DAILY WRAP UP: 1 1/2 Library + 1/2 Front Hall + 1 hour Outside = 3 hours.

BONUS UPDATE: Here are my re-potted plants:

(L to R)

Catnip (separated for safety of other plants), Basil, Dill, Bell Peppers, Yellow Peppers, Silver Mound Lantana, Red/Yellow Lantana
