After weathering a major storm which blew in over 3'of snow, with up to 8' drifts, we got right into spring seeding and planning here on the farm.

I routinely take cuttings off my ivy plants so I can train them around wire frames. The latest batch is almost rooted enough that I can pot them up into tiny clay pots. The plan is to have enough for a craft sale in the summer.

The copper wire that I had salvaged in the fall was too shiny, so after forming it into the wire circles, I put it outside in the salty sea air to weather and get that gorgeous verdigris or the pale green color that it turns as it oxidizes.

I'll be potting the ivy cuttings up in the next little while, in between sowing some native plant seeds for a pollinator garden, and some Streptocarpus, a lovely flowering plant that resembles orchids when in bloom. No scent, unfortunately! What are your plans for growing and displaying plants in your garden?
