Nearly all the plants indoors are now outdoors or on the porch (easy to enclose if it gets below 40F at night). I've a few more upstairs to move out, but it's too late in the day for that now.

Moving plants onto the porch entailed moving a bunch of stuff around or off the porch, then moving a table and a long bench onto the porch -- bit of work, but got it done.

Also transplanted a few new plants into pots on the patio: Petunias, Pansies, one Lady's Mantle (to keep my remaining one company), and a mix of leaf lettuces.

Did you know that Petunias come in black? I didn't know that until this past Saturday - now I have two of them :)


I've been looking for a couple of nearly-finished tent bags for a week or so now, then figured I'd probably have to move the plants to find them, and I was correct. Hate have so much stuff jammed into one space; now I have room to go through what's still in the dining room and get things sorted.

Hoping soon to either rearrange or otherwise make enough space in the trailer to move a coat rack into it. It's a lovely old thing with a center post and the rack is a spiral with acorn-like knobs to keep things separate. I've used it for a few different things but it really isn't fitting into the house anymore. Since we're working on insulating the trailer and making it more usable, a coat rack is an eminently practical addition.

Heavens, I could have told you that petunias come in black, I have some growing in my kitchen right now :) Keep them indoors and they will last for years instead of being annuals.

Of course you'd know :D

These are my first black flowers...for some reason I end up with a lot of pink ones, with some purple and blue thrown in - thought I'd change it up this year. They're lovely and quite velvety and rich.

Can I have them out in the summer and bring them in in the fall?

I guess? I have no idea. Mine are kept on the kitchen windowsill all year 'round, so I suppose it makes sense that if they are taken in during the colder seasons they would survive.

And if they don't, you can always buy more next year :D
