I have acquired 8 plants in the past few weeks. Maybe I am just too excited for spring, or maybe I needed a hobby to pass the time before my baby arrives. But whatever it is, I just couldn't wait till May or June (when I will be growing herbs and tomatoes) to get some plants! My aunt actually gave me some lovely house plants.

However, for some reason I couldn't stop there. This week I went to Home Depot and bought some flowers, and then later went to Walmart to get some more plants. Walmart has 4 pound bags of potting soil for 98 cents, by the way! And the nicest old man helped me choose plants and talked to me about everything from my baby's horoscope to my husband's engineering degree... ("Do you know what B.S. is? ...other than a bachelor's degree?" "Yes." "Well an MS is more of the same...and a PhD is just Piled Higher and Deeper." LOL)
This plant craze would all be fine and dandy (despite spending over $30 on it this week) if it weren't for one thing:
|Provo can't decide if it's spring or not...it was 70 degrees when I bought my plants!|
As for the flowers (which require 6 hours of sun a day), I keep having to bring them inside due to adverse weather conditions.

I made this little envelope to hold all the plant info on the fridge so I could refer to it easily. It's hard to keep track of the needs of all these plants!
I hope I can keep these plants alive!
