Every spring I get excited about planting things and purchase annuals long before it is warm enough to safely plant them outside. It's a sure way to encourage the weather to turn cold and wet just to spite me. One Sunday morning last spring I was looking across the table at some plants I had brought in out of mercy. Since it was too nasty to be outside, I decided to paint them instead of plant them. This one was actually in a little plastic nursery pot. So I painted him into a more comfortable home, painted some dirt around his roots and here he thrives.
