I have admitted before my obsessive nature towards the subject of the moment. I tend to eat, drink & breath a hobby or interest for as long as it lasts. All out and full speed ahead. I want to learn more. I want to find bloggers or forums with similar interests. I visit the library. I buy used books for my growing library of how-to.
(First new blooms on Happy Trails since starting over. It arrived by mail in May along with 5 other plants.)
A quick search of my blog using the word obsession surprised me how many times I've admitted the description of myself. Dating back to the very 1st entry!
My current project is replacing some of the named African Violets I used to grow on lighted plant stands. I committed all but 3 to the compost bins several years ago. Sounds less guilty than "she killed them all"? (Which is what I had to admit when Steph came home after being away for a year and wanted to know what happened to them all.)
I've rejoined active participation at Violet Voice. It moved from the MSN site and it's less active than I hoped. If you have an interest in growing better African Violets, check it out. Help liven things up a bit!
This old blog entry is actually full of wise advice. Most of which I neglected to follow in the end. I'm reminding myself daily the best advice I ignored of all: Grow only the number you have time to care for.
(I ordered 2 new plants and 3 leaves yesterday. 2 shelves is my limit. I swear! :)
