Yes, I know - I'm showing off - but I thought you'd all like to see how I'm doing with these plants - I'm really pleased with the coleus clippings. They did so well.

That stuff in what Jeff calls 'the sconce' is wild oregano and summer savory.

There is what I think is a little sprig of rosemary in there too.

I LOVE coleus! They are so easy to start from cuttings it's rediculous. I start dozens every year from plants I grew last year and this year. I have about 15-20 cuttings I started about a week ago. I'll probably do more in a few weeks. One of my faves is "Oompah". This year I fell for "Freckles" and "Pinapple". I grow them indoors in winter for color and by spring they are big enough to take cuttings from and the cycle repeats!

I hope we can keep them going indoors - we have a window that gets an indirect south sun - I won't be able to keep too much of it, there just isn't room on that window sill for all my stuff this year.

So I guess there will be some little gifts.
