Succulent, originally uploaded by jenib320.

Starting off today with an early blog. The light was pretty nice as the sun was coming up this morning so I thought I'd snap a few photos since I will be gone most of the day. I finally managed to repot a few succulents last night. A few were still in terra cotta so I wanted to move them to some nicer looking pots. This little guy got moved into a Pyrex Terra Mug! Since it's handleless it's perfect for a little plant! :)

Zinnia, originally uploaded by jenib320.

My first Zinnia bloom from the plants I started! I cannot wait to start everything from seed again next year, it was really fun and rewarding! It was also way more cost effective! :) The first one to bloom is pink, yay!

Nasturtiums, originally uploaded by jenib320.

Almost all of the Nasturtium seeds I planted came up, so I ended up with a lot of plants! The flowers are such pretty colors :)

Experiment, originally uploaded by jenib320.

I have found loads of white lotus bowls and some of them are chipped. So in order to fulfill my desire for colored ones I'm experimenting with painting chipped white ones with enamel paint. This was my first one, the next one is looking a lot better already. The directions on the paint were a little sketchy and the paint did not smooth out at all in the oven. Overall, I'll definitely be making more of these, hopefully the next one will turn out even better! I think I may spray this with a coat of gloss as a final touch! :) I am currently working on a purple one, so we'll see what happens!
