Since it's turned bitter cold outside (4o feels positively frigid after 63 on Thanksgiving), I've turned to gardening indoors. I've been a bit under the weather and lacking enough energy to dig out the Christmas decorations, but I did drag myself out to pick up a poinsettia on Friday.
Note the nifty silver container -- a freebie from the company that supplies the plants for my office as a thank you for signing up with them. I killed the orchid that came in it just in time to use it for a poinsettia in my living room:
I am not enjoying trying to take photos indoors with the flash on my camera. This is the only one that turned out even half true to life:
The amaryllis has really sprouted this last week. I can't wait to see it bloom. I'm enjoying forcing it so much that I picked up some paperwhite bulbs on Friday when I got the poinsettia and as soon as I feel up to braving getting off the couch, I'm going to get them started.
My last purchase on Friday at the garden center was a rosemary tree:
Ignore the dirty dishes in the sink, VPH will kill me when he sees this photo.
So the entire herb garden in the kitchen is now basil, dill, cilantro, and rosemary:
Too bad we don't have scratch and sniff internet, the rosemary tree smells amazing.
What are you growing inside this winter?
