We have lots of little crocuses coming up in the lawn - several white, a few lavender, and so far just a single deep purple one.  So far they're all on the north side of the lawn - those always show up sooner than their opposite number.  I planted them there a few years ago, and they have mostly hung in there, although it seems I lose a few on the south side and gain a few on the north every year.

The seedlings are doing well.  I let some of them get too dry to the point of wilting yesterday, but they've all recovered.  The broccoli and cucumbers are about to lose their seed leaves.

The wilt problem with the tomatoes was confined to just a couple of plants.  Looking closely at one of them it appeared to have bred untrue, so I culled it.  There's one more that isn't quite as dramatic; I'll give it a few more days to see whether it's going to straighten up (literally & figuratively).

I repotted 3 houseplants last week: the new fatsia, the ficus lyrata, and the ficus elastica.  No more ugly plastic nursery pots in the living room!  And it only took 6 years or so.  :P

The jasmine has scale, and apparently gave it to the fatsia.  So last weekend when the weather was nice, I took them each outside, hosed them down, spritzed them down with spray oil, and let them sit outside until dry.  The fatsia seems completely cured.  The jasmine was so heavily infested that I'm going to give it another go next time the weather is decent.  I can see the ugly little things beginning to fall off already, which is good.  I hate scale.

Mum's clivia miniata is blooming beautifully.  I'm so lucky it's hanging out with me for now. :)

Tomorrow Mum & I head to Ikea to pick up some more of that incredibly cheap utilitarian shelving they carry.  I have cleaned out the grow room and intend to use one wall for storing indoor plant supplies.

Thank goodness it's spring.

I have a water-damaged (potentially moldy) IKEA bookshelf which you would be welcome to have, since you are a homeowner and I'm a renter. It's no good for books anymore.
