Waiting For the Sun . . .
I went to my local nursery today and bought new plants! I have very limited choices in this area because 1) If I buy anything spiky, my cat will nibble off the leaves until it's dead and 2) I have only northern facing windows, so if the plant needs more than four minutes of sunlight a day it wilts and then dies. So now I have basil, mint, and catnip on the sill, and a purple oxalis (shamrock) on my desk. Strangely, the cats are not interested in the catnip until it is plucked and placed in front of them. Not that they are lazy or spoiled, or anything. Really.
