A Little Transplanting Around Here

A Little Transplanting Around Here

It's that time of the year when you really start feeling like you need to get your hands back in the dirt.  Well around here were frozen solid for about another 2 1/2 months. Man,  that sounds like a looooong time away. 
So while I'm impatiently waiting for the snow to melt and the frost to come out of the ground I thought right now would be a perfect time to do some transplanting. Off to one of my favorite places to pass a few hours, Tonkadale Greenhouses.  And my other favorite place is Tangletown Gardens, I love both of these spots for so many reasons but the first 2 are for their knowledgeable staff and the variety I have to choose from. Oh and the music they play and the smell of damp dirt and the warmth...
I could go on.. 
I always find something  there I "need". On this particular outing I found 3 of those such items. 
Look how happy they are to be in a cool pot and hanging out in a sunny window. 
This sweetie was one of my mothers so I am trying to do the very best with all of the plants that were her's.
It was root bound  and has some funky stuff going on with it's leaves so I thought I'd give this one a little pick-me-up.
Looking a little upset here but I think it's going to be ok.
I know, right?! Lookin good.
This ivy was in a tiny metal planter that it came in. I transplanted into a bigger pot and I think its much happier.
Spring will be here before we know it. I'm counting on it.
