If February is about 
March is about

and where I live?
most days average about 17 MPH
but today...30-50
(this is when we say it's too windy to stack bb's)

so it's best to amuse yourself indoors and that means

Lately I was inspired by my blog friend

so I went to Target and bought a tray
that she shows at her blog 
(she's crazy talented)

I gathered up some soil and seeds and supplies

and planted a few fun things to make a day like today seem better

it happens almost right before your eyes!

Ruby Red Beets
to top your spring soups and salads
I filled my wooden tray with old jars to grow
moss and ferns and seeds

makes the blah March winds seem tolerable

Easter is just around the corner
I made these at my art gallery when I had a kiln
me and my kids made a rabbit patch!


you can get away with a few nice fakes here and there

these are radish seeds

hmmm....peas to plant?

Go March!

Looks wonderful, Gina. I just planted up some seds today!! We're getting another 6" of snow tomorrow after a couple of beautiful days.

Well you have inspired me. Going to start some seeds inside and watch them sprout! Oh my, is that moss growing on pea gravel in a mason jar??? Love it, I want to try that. Did you start out with yogurt and the stones?

What a great way to spend the month of March, while waiting for Springtime. Thank you for a very creative idea!

Hi Gina! LOVE THIS! You have reminded me to go to Target to get one of these trays! Have fun! Anita

Too windy to stack BBs. I love that. Can't wait to see all of those seeds of yours sprout!

I do like the tray and everything in it! I love bringing the green indoors and playing in the dirt! Cute post, and I'd love to see more of your ceramic/clay art at some point. I had no idea that you once had a kiln!

Dearest Gina! Thank you so much for coming by today! Yes, I am very excited to interview artists now in order to write on them. I hope it will be a beginning of a career as a freelance writer!

I hope you are enjoying good weather. We finally have had some melting! YAY! Anita

Hi Gina! It looks like spring at your place:):) I am anxious to garden however it's so muddy and cold still it will be a while. Indoor gardens are perfect! xxleslie

It looks really great.

I am tired of the wind, too. Smart idea to garden inside! I love the red stems of the beets - so pretty! I'm hoping since March has brought us wind, April will bring us showers!

March to me means shamrock plants. I love seeing them in abundance at the grocery stores. Thanks for sharing the plants around your house.
