Some of my indoor plants in the basement are barely hanging on. I have been checking them at least twice a week to make sure they have plenty of water, but it is the light that they are crying for. I was considering getting them a special growing light, but I actually like to give them a break in the winter. Sadly they look like they have had more than a break, they look like they are ready to cash it in, and I think a few might find their way to the compost bin before spring hits. On the other hand a few do look like they have wintered well and will be ready for the sunshine of spring and summer, though I will be sure to introduce them more gradually this year so the winds of our springs don’t rip them to shreds the way they did last spring.
In the meantime, I see from this picture it really is time to go through this room and sort and remove items that really don’t add to the atmosphere or serve a purpose. I am really going to have to go through all of my possessions in this basement and let go of some of them. For now, though I will keep my focus in the main part of the house so that I have room to keep the things that I really want to keep. I have been pretty excited about some of my sorting and removing. I will have to post more of that as the season goes. Those posts will be seen here or on one of my other sites (lucindalines or lucindacrafts) depending on the category of what I dispose of. I am thinking that the frog Jessica gave me last night that is featured on my lines site today will be a nice partner to some houseplant in the future.
