My lush mint now.
My Spearmint that I planted from seed way back in October is nice and lush now. I really thought I had posted more about my mint but found hardly a post about it. That means it's time to introduce the mint. I love mint and would have many planters of it but I like to try other plants too. Now I have many photos of my mint in every stage possible. This is why I was surprised I had no posts on it.
The mint in February before being repot.
Way back in October I sowed my mint seeds. They were very slow starting. So slow starting I thought that they wouldn't make it. I had heard how mint just spreads like crazy so I really thought they would start out fast. They took their time but have gotten to a nice lushness that is every growing everyday. The picture above is of the mint in January. Once it really started to take off it quickly outgrew it's pot.

I'm glad I have the mint. I haven't used it for any tea like I had planned to when I purchased the seeds. Maybe I should do that now that I have many leaves to pluck. It was only a few days ago I really thought back on how little the mint was. I'm always thinking my plants aren't as lush and big as the plants of others. Really I think I might just be doing a good job...or at least with the mint I am.
My daylilies back in November.
I got my daylies in late October early November. They have gone through a nice growth then they died back for a month and now they are coming back again. I'm hoping I will get some blooms this year. Even if I don't I like the foliage enough that I wouldn't be too upset about it. The picture above is when I got my daylilies.

They quickly grew to like their new home, and really grew. Then shortly afterwards in December of January they died back. That is when I got to start looking for new growth, my favorite thing to do.
Now the daylilies are really starting to grow back. I can't wait to see if they will bloom. It's nice to have that corner of the balcony all greened out. They really love that pot and I'm surprised since they are rather mashed in there and I'm known to neglect that big pot.
