Gro op and new additions!

Well this is my beautiful White double helleborus of an unknown variety from a greenhouse in New Zealand, who just lost their greenhouses due to a mega fire (I'm not sure how much is accurate there but I've heard it down the grapevine of greenhouses). At first, like a brainer I am, I shoved it in the full blazing sun, in the hottest room of my house and of course, it starts to yellow..... burnnn.... And I'm like duh! FULL SHADE PLANT ANDREA> WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

See what happens in the off season? The brain shuts down and full scale stay-at-home mom breaks out. Forget about the plants and focus on the baby. Go me.
Needless to say, its in the kitchen now, in the shade and watered very little until it warms up and I can throw it outside.
Here we have Iresine. Remember I said my grower got a random stem turned black from the blazing rose? This is it... Yes, its wilting. It does that often. The owner isn't very good with watering lately.

Wilting too.

The Black Rooster. Score!

The 29th birthday gifts

So for my birthday, my husband bought me seeds for growing a vegetable garden. it's march, its a little late but I think if I get them going now, I can have them up and ready by the begining of may (which is too cold to plant anyways).

We're going out for a shelf today and i'm going to errect my growing seeds next to the sliding door.

FUN? Lots of fun... Hazardous to little grabby hands of a 17 month old? Very.

The entire gift collection included:

1 Smutty book + A large Black Cock (C'mon people. A rooster!) + Seeds = a very happy birthday indeed!
