Over The Weekend: Jade

I've been growing jade plants for a few years now. Every so often, one of the cat's would pull off a leaf (out of spite I always assumed), so I'd sprout it. Since that first plant, what started with one has multiplied into numerous babies. This past weekend I spent some time repotting a few that had overtaken their pots. I love having plants around our apartment, it keeps the air clear and- during the winter months- brings some green indoors. So far I've really only had good luck with jade, so I decided to try out an aloe plant. We'll see how this works out.

The weather was so incredibly beautiful this weekend, I spent every available moment outdoors. As I repotted, read, worked, and ate al fresco, the cats protested from the windowsill, hungrily watching the fat robins hopping around on the lawn.
