Leaf buds on the lilacs and other shrubs. Birds peeping in the morning. Temptations to ask the landlord can I plant a forsythia in the dirt patch in front of the building--that's all it is, honestly, just a patch of dirt. But I'm a lazy gardener and should probably start small. Which I'm doing: an extant aloe plant, and basil, lavender and pansies from seed.

Heat off, windows open, fresh air.

Slightly hyper. Too much coffee, plus a lot of sunlight--good stuff but always affects me.

I'm going to try this link-thingy one more time and then if it doesn't work I'm going to scream... My RL friend [livejournal.com profile] resourceress is coming over for dinner tomorrow. We will probably be talking about LJ stuff since I'm still feeling my way around (witness how I've been grumbling about how to do this linking thing). Dr. Who and Torchwood slashy goodness will probably also enter the conversation.

Gotta go now, spending way too much time here, see y'all later.

Gardening against the odds

Guerrilla gardening! How did that work out? You have to be persistent and absorb setbacks (like someone *mowing over your precious plants* OMG!) without getting ruffled. I'm spoiled now by sharing my in-laws backyard; when we move to our own place, the landlord may not be as accommodating as my mom-in-law.

I wound up not doing any gardening at all. Except for my very prolific aloe plants that sit and soak up sun in my bedroom (southern) window and really need repotting (again). Every fall I get the urge to plant bulbs in front of the house, and every fall I wind up thinking "meh." Every spring I think "maybe *this* year I'll grow some herbs in pots on the back porch." So far haven't gotten off the stick and done it, but maybe this year.

What sort of things do you grow?
