Many from Few

 
Impatiens are so easy to root that it's hard to resist.. . .
  this is my second or maybe third batch this year.

I love watching the roots snake out like undersea creatures . . .
Another week and I'll pot these up and start the process over again.    
The tall green leaves are pineapple sage -- no roots yet.

Many thanks for all the kind words about Eddie. I miss him and his ornery ways.

I wonder if this is what's in my yard? See how smart I am... I don't even know!

Those are beautiful. Now I better go water the plants and seeds we planted yesterday! :-) Thank you for the inspiration.

Hmmm. I'd love to ask my walking partner for a cutting of her impatience, see if I can make magic too.

There is something pretty fascinating about watching the emergence of roots. Your impatiens bottle nursery looks rather wonderful against the window's light.

Let me also send you sympathy on the loss of the remarkable Eddie.

I'm so sorry about Eddie....a fine figure of a cat and family member.

I have always liked Impatiens since I first saw them when my Mom brought some back from an Alaska visit. She told me they were called Blooming Idiots. They are great bloomers.

Impatient's other name, Busy Lizzy, says it all. ;-)
