A tree grows in Brooklyn, heck there is a forest growing there Thumbs up Your plants are amazing, I cant get over the size of your shamrock. How many of them go up to your rooftop & do you have help? And I see you dont have enough so your starting some more Rolling on the floor laughing I thought I was plant crazy I agree

Well...thanks all...I see the picture of Silver lounging on the top of the trellis didn't show up... He was up on the roof yesterday and was all over that trellis also..

Thanks .. Yes Christine... The shamrock... Oxalis is wonderful... It grows about everywhere I divide it up and put the bulbs out everywhere .. It is growing in the bottom of the cool room.. Most of my things winter up on the roof in a 10' X 10 ft building I make out of 2" thick foam ..I first put a glass skylight in it's roof in the early spring..a few weeks ago I cut the other 1/2 of the roof off.. To acclimate them to the sun and the outside temperature swings...in another week I'll cut the building away and put the plants there outside.. And erect a 40% shade cloth over the area where it sat.. Then move the inside plants out under the shade cloth for a few weeks....till they have adjusted..then they get planted out...
This is the cool room now... Things are leafing out.. A few buds forming.... And last summers oxalis.. Are sprouting out on it's floor
Ok more cat photos. Soon
