Look- I haven't killed them yet!
I found the ivy on clearance for a buck at another store, and it always makes me a little sad when perfectly good plants are marked way down, so I brought it home. The good thing about ivy is it's pretty hard to kill, so even though I've put my African violets pretty close to their grave, I'm pretty sure this ivy can stick out whatever I throw at it. I've already moved it to the bathroom and forgotten about it for over a week (oops), but I just took it out today and it seems to be fine.
Unfortunately the freak hard freezes we had in Austin have killed all of my outside plants, but hopefully that's done with, because I have some sweet peas that I grew from seed that are doing really really well, and are just about ready to be transplanted to a window box. Most of my zinnia seedlings have been eaten by Artoo, but there are about 4 that I can transplant. I'm really really hoping these will continue to grow, zinnias are one of my favorite flowers because they get nice and bushy and make for such nice cut flowers.
