I just transferred a Mahoi pup from my pergola plat to a half wine barrel this morning. Good size. Can be seen as the third plant from top right.

My, how your babies have grown!

Great price on the shower doors! It can't compare with my windows I got for free, though...keep trying

I hope you have no losses this winter!
