The streak of nice, warm weather drew out hibernating plants and animals alike, and treated us to sights like bold, graphic daffodils.
But it's supposed to get cold and rainy (indeed, the temperature has been dropping since I woke up this morning) and even... snowy. To the indoor garden!
Yesterday, I obtained rosemary, pennyroyal. and catnip plants. Since they (obviously) can't be planted outside just yet, and the mints need to be contained and the rosemary can be overwintered indoors anyway, I planted all of them in pots that can be buried in the garden (catnip and pennyroyal in one, rosemary in another). I also found borage seeds (!!) and selected snap bean and sunflower seeds. The brats have gone absolutely nuts about the catnip plant, tearing the bag I carried it in to shreds. My DamnCat in particular wolfed down the few leaves I gave her.
Oh, and I sowed some spinach seed in a windowbox, but now I have to keep it indoors until this funny snow business clears up. Invisible spinach!
In non-stasis news, my mystery orchid that lives in my shower dropped its original flowers but is setting buds now.
