can only go so long
So when a sweet friend
gave me this ivy in a basketful of goodies...I immediately knew
where I wanted it.
I layered several rocks (for drainage) in a large canning jar.
I added a bit of soil, and then took the
ivy out of its plastic pot, and
into its new, shiny digs.
No pun intended.
(see the cone under the cloche? husband and I jumped out of the car
in Sequoia National Park back in 1995...it was getting dark....we thought a bear would get us....the cone is huge...over a foot...a beautiful memory of a 30 day cross-country journey)
I love the ivy in its new location.
The green contrasts nicely with the creams and blues.
I look forward to seeing it draping down
the sides of the jar and across the mantel.
A perfect location out of direct sunlight
(and away from pets).
Time to Rest.
If you are watching football tonight (who isn't)....a great app here:
Diana at "Azoresgal" has some great recipes!
(Have you ever been to the Azores?)
