O.K. I know it is winter - I mean it IS January BUT my oh my - today was BEEE-U-tiful!
Nearly 50 degrees and super sunny in Kentucky - but tonight - guess what - it is suppose to snow. Wow, what a difference a few hours can make!
But I enjoyed replanting some of my indoor house plants today...outside in the sunshine.
This morning my big ceramic pot (yard sale find for $4.00) was filled with what was left of my amaryllis. Nestled around them was a bunch of pine cones and some feathers (more on that in a minute).
I couldn't stand it - I had to do something different - sooooo, I took out the bulbs.
I gathered some plants that I had inside that needed attention.
The one in most need of attention was my Peace Lily. It was terribly root bound and needed to be divided. I must say I was a lil' hard on it with the knife but it'll rebound fine. If you'd like all the "how-to" information on care, maintenance and dividing the Peace Lily check Pro Plants for some great info. This plant is about as low maintenance as it gets.
Along side my Peace Lily, I replanted an arrowhead vine and ivy, both of which were part of a gorgeous Christmas planter I received this year. I then topped the soil with moss.
Next I nestled in the pine cones to remind me that it is still winter no matter what the temp. says.
These beautiful feathers were also tucked in that delightful Christmas basket I received from my friend, Pam. Of course, they are from her flock of fine feathered friends. It was truly a beautiful gift.
And there you have it - a fresh new planter - filled with the hope of spring as well as the natural beauty of winter time.
I took some of the remaining Peace Lily and placed it in my pretty blue crock...
...And another few pieces found their new home in an old milk bottle. Actually the Peace Lily roots thrive just fine tucked in water.
I'm dreaming of spring today!
Happy Sunshiney Day!
