Dicotyledonous

I enjoy weird long words. I smile and laugh at their funny pronunciation and count them a tiny bright spot in a day. I also love seeing my plants grow, bloom, sprout and germinate, and dicotyledonous is a flowering plant whose seed typically has two embryonic leaves.

I’ve been working on starting various plants to set out in my garden once our Southern finicky weather cooperates. A few days ago they were predicting snow in the area, and today I was outside in shorts and a t-shirt enjoying the 75 degree weather.

Thanks to Pinterest, I’ve had several different inspirations for containers to start my seeds in. Out of the various assortment of ideas I’ve tried so far, I have been the most successful with thrift stores finds. The most labor intensive was my newspaper planters. Somewhere between the tearing, shredding, soaking, mashing, and setting I decided that was TOO much work! They have however, been a great conversation starter. 🙂
