Last year I attempted a windowsill herb garden. I took pictures of it and was fully intending to tell you about it. I managed to keep it (and by it, I mean everything beside the basil) alive for most of the summer. Then, slowly, the plants rebelled, silently asking for water which I was far too busy to provide. Eventually I was left with only two tiny non-herb plants and a heart full of sadness.
When spring rolled around, I was eager to bring some greenery back into our condo. I loaded up the pots and plants and delivered the box o’ death to the best florist in St. Louis. I asked for plants that I couldn’t kill (and jade because I’m in love with that plant right now) and Bridget totally hooked me up.
That bunch of greenery totally makes my day. And I’m determined to keep most (let’s be honest there will probably be some casualties) of them alive.
Over the winter we also grabbed some cool, cube milk glass pots for the master bathroom. They were also filled with a little green happiness.
Each spring, I’ve toyed with the idea of planting some a mini garden outside. These new additions and our Meyer lemon tree that’s actually budding (!!!), is holding those yearnings at bay for now. Are you doing any spring planting (indoor or out)?
