Spring Fever - container gardens on my windowsill

Well, I think it's official. I have a bad case of Spring Fever! First it was garden bulbs, and now I've gone and started a container garden as well.

It all happened while on a trip to the local Wal-mart. I was only intending on getting a few little things for Valentine's Day when I noticed some discounted plants. VERY DISCOUNTED.

Now there's just something about a sale - and about plants that look like they would like to see some sunlight - that brings out the imagination in me. I start to visualize where I will put them. How they will thrive. And how pretty they will look in their new setting.

So I picked up three of the bedraggled little creatures, as well as a shallow dish (seeing as they were succulents) and took them all home on a very cold and blustery winter night.

They have since turned out quite well! Their color is back, and the leaves perked right up again.

And I must admit I'm happy as I sit here in my kitchen, watching sparrows and chickadees at the snowy outside feeder, and having an ever-growing garden on the corner of my table.

If you would like instructions and a video on how to plant a container garden, please visit   I've posted all the details.
