Indoor Gardening, Cold Frame, Amaryllis & Quilt

This is how my lettuces are growing under the grow lights.  The tray on the right is the first one I planted.  I have been harvesting some of the two trays on the right and using.

The weather was a little milder today so I opened up the cold frame for a bit.  This is what I saw!!

Yummy potato soup in in the crockpot for our meal tonight!  Probably not so healthy but oh so good!!!

I have been working on a lap quilt made up of music materials.  I am so upset with myself as I goofed on the borders so it is not as large as it should be!!

Here is a close up of some of the materials I used in it.

This is the music material I used on the back.

I have never had an Amaryllis plant before but was given one for Christmas.  There was another bud on it but graceful me knocked it off!  I wondered if the flowers are suppose to droop like this??

"Wonderful Gardener" gave me this beautiful red rose.  This does win some brownie points for him for all the time he spends on doing his historical videos of Pt. Huron, Michigan.  Between the rose and the Amaryllis the house looks quite cheerful!

Progress in the Courtyard!

  It was so nice to look out my bedroom window this morning and see the Clematis blooming instead of a pile of snow.  It is a rainy day agai...
