"When the world wearies and society ceases to satisfy, there is always the garden."
I added a bit of color to my tiny garden this week with the purchase of some New Guinea Impatiens. After giving it a day to acclimate itself to its new surroundings, I potted it in my very favorite pot and within a day she gifted me with her first flower.

I haven't had this much fun making a garden in many years and there is no end in sight as far as I'm concerned. I still have two window sills that are begging for plants now that my sweet cat, Charlotte, who was the climber and jumper, is in kitty heaven, and her sister, Laura, has old legs that don't like to climb that high any more. She prefers spending whatever time she isn't sleeping enjoying videos of aquariums:
So my indoor gardening adventure continues. I'm thinking maybe some begonias, and maybe some petunias, and, and ....
And so it is!
