Green Week: 3

When I was a child my parents used to take us to visit greenhouses in the winter. I always came home with a little African violet or cactus. It's one of those great childhood memories. My girls now see a trip to the greenhouse in deep winter as a mandatory event. When we went this past January, I brought back these primroses for my north kitchen window. Of course, the girls got cacti. Don't all kids love them?

I also have a second round of crocuses starting to grow down in that blue pot. I have bulbs started all over the house in the hopes that we'll have some flowers for Easter! It's almost time to plant wheat grass.

We've got little violets poking out of the ground right now- it's so nice to see color. Your windowsill looks very pretty.

I didn't get a cactus either! You also said you'd get me a venus fly trap from that greenhouse in connecticut
