To those of you who are gardening even with coats, hats and gloves, I salute you.
I did visit our local greenhouse over the weekend to pick up a new planter for a fern that was root bound. Ah, plants everywhere I looked, and the air smelled so good.
I relished my repotting experience and getting dirt under my nails. This is a special little fern that was a gift from a friend who has since passed. It loves living on my kitchen window sill, but during the winter months it has to live on my four-season porch because we have a warm window curtain on the north facing kitchen window. It doesn’t so much like the cooler and less humid temps of the porch and barely hangs on until it can get back to its home window.
We still have feet of snow on the ground, ice everywhere, and a big snowstorm coming our way on Wednesday just in case anyone did have a bare spot not covered in white.
I’m keeping the sewing and embroidery machines running, and I’m also taking a rug braiding class. I have cut my strips, pieced them together, and started braiding my fabric. I’ll finish braiding today and during class tomorrow night I’ll begin sewing it together.
Today, I hope for a call from a plumber so we can fix a leak in the garage. The pipe started leaking late Friday evening and not wanting to pay weekend fees we had to come up with a MacGyver moment to get us through the weekend. So…we tied a long funnel to the pipe, put the funnel into a hose, and put the hose under the garage door. At least the garage is dry. 🙂
