Growing Up/Down

What a pleasure to return to our cozy apartment in Burlington, Vermont to find the plants not only alive and well, but all grown up!

Ben's philodendron (top) is looking more handsome than ever. The bromeliad pup (above left) is steadily gaining height, the money tree (above right) is a veritable canopy of greenness, and the geranium (below left) is unfurling verdant, fuzzy leaves. Even our pathetically stunted "lucky" bamboo (below right) put on a bit of new growth.

Out on the eaves, things have been growing down, not up. Now we are enclosed on all sides by a sparkling ice castle.

It's amazing what can happen in a month.
