Spider Plant Nostalgia Trip

Well, this has been a quiet winter for me over at The site redesigns over the past few months have been difficult to deal with. The site is problematic to navigate and I'm not comfortable with the types of ads around my work. Even though I don’t get paid much there I wanted it as a place to direct people to when they want to see samples of my work. But, I can’t do that in good faith until it looks a little more professional.

So, this winter I planned to do a series on house plants but only posted “Caring for spider plants” and “How to grow spider plants from cuttings.” When I was growing up there was always a massive spider plant around the house with a million babies. I always wanted to “save” them and ended up with jars full of water and little plants in my room. Surprisingly, I don’t have any spider plants now. Even though I like them a lot I think they will just happen, like kittens. Plus, it is like getting sour dough starter…it starts out innocently enough but then you’ve got a lot of it on your hands.

So, since I don’t have a real spider plant around the house I used this photo by marmit of stock.xchng.

Snowy Mountain Road

This is the road that we drive down when we go swimming in the summer, in the Catoctin Mountain Park. Well, no swimming today but it was very quiet and peaceful out there.
