It's Friday again! Yay for the weekend! It's also Nature Walk time, and oh, how I wish we had cute, little, green, fiddleheads growing outside.
We most definitely do not.
I am not complaining, but I am getting a little weary, especially when those lovely people at Better Homes & Gardens send me a magazine with a gorgeous front cover of flowers and blossoms in beautiful pots, that are "so easy" to grow. See what I mean?
Ha! Good joke! "So easy"...when this isn't the current view of your front porch:

So, I admit, I nature walked alright...I nature walked myself right around the inside of the house and peeked through the windows to get these shots. The wind-chill hit below -31F (-35C) this week. Brrr!
At least I have a really pretty view outside the window of my newly organized room!
But really, it was starting to get to me a little, so I decided to garden.
"Garden!", you say,"are you joking?"
Nope. Not at all. Sometimes a girl has just got to get her hands dirty. I dirtied my hands and the kitchen counters too, but I didn't care, it felt sooo good to do something, anything, that made me feel a little closer to the soil and the life that was maybe still alive out there, somewhere, underneath all that snow.
I separated and transplanted some of my succulents! I'm finally getting the hang of these. It's not that hard actually, as long as you remember this rule: Don't. Over. Water.
And...I even made babies!! Baby succulents!!! Aren't they so cute?? This blog has beautiful photos and instructions. My lens won't let me zoom any closer, but can you see the baby roots? These little individual leaves will each be their own plant one day...hopefully. =) Yay!
Here's my first baby that I planted. Let's hope he keeps growing!
