Well, I'm still not quite there yet.... but I did bring in a Spanish thyme plant from outside.... Oddly enough, I put it in the bathroom by the window.... (The only thing used in there is the tub.) It sorta felt right putting it there for many reasons, with the best one being I can see it when I'm lying down in bed.

I like how it smells.... I like how it looks. It seems to stay up best during the evening hours. (It can look a little droopy during the day, in partial shade.)

My aloe plant is still alive, but some parts of it doesn't look as great. I'm going to take it outside & clip off the withering/blackened pieces.... I let it get some rainwater when there was all that weather. I think it'll be fine, but I'm going to put it back outside. I may bring in another aloe plant & put that one exactly where it is. It seems to be in a lucky spot (the side stairs).

Well.... I may bring in the other two off of the step & put them in the bathroom by that window, where I can see them. (& then I'll have a pyramidal design of potted plants....) :lol:

Well... The plant that seems to be doing best (& it's on top of the commode in the bathroom I don't really use) is the aloe plant. New littles ones are even sprouting.

With the Spanish thyme plant, the leaves are yellowing very quickly.... Maybe it's getting burnt or something somehow (maybe from the steam/heat from the shower). I decided to put that one in the hallway to see if that makes a difference.... The plant still looks good, but I want it to be very green!

I put the Spanish thyme plant out on the green step. It's doing pretty well.

Finally, I brought back in my aloe plant that someone cut. It's doing better in its spot. I'm glad it's back in the house. It really does keep me company....

The original aloe plant I had in the house looks okay but the root does not. (Pretty weird...)

My aloe plant seems to have taken a turn for the worse.....

I have some other plants that my friend gave me. Those are doing well. :-)

I am trying my hand at planting again. So far, the basil & catnip I put down came up nicely.

There's more to do, but I have been a little tired.

Too much snow here to even think about planting. LOL.

The basil are doing well. My Dad helped me out quite a bit.

Unfortunately, the catnip was overturned by.... ~drum roll~ a cat....

My peace lilies are rebounding well after a short period of neglect....

A friend put a dandelion in a pot & man, that thing looked like it would die a few days ago. I gave it some vitamin water, which seems to be helping. It still looks a bit droopy, but the stalk is standing tall.

I might plant some more seeds that I have....

Have had tulips, daisy, my magnolia blooming, it is wonderful! Loving this thing called Spring.

Good luck with your flowers and plants.

The plants are doing well with all the rain we've been getting! I haven't really seen much new growth, though....

You will. Got black tulips, there were beautiful! Too bad they don't last longer.

I finally figured out what plant I would like in the house, & it's some white sage!!
