My husband had Monday off, so we spent the three-day weekend visiting my parent's. When we got home Monday afternoon, he put up a ceiling fan in the office with the help of Fiona. While they were busy on the ladder, I finally took the time to pot two palms we had purchased from Sam's over a month ago.
The lovely brown spots and trimmed leaves are courtesy of the cats who think the palms are their personal snacking ground. Hopefully now that they sit a little higher they won't be so inclined to nibble on the poor palms.
Years ago I remember reading a tip in Martha Stewart Living about using packing peanuts to fill planters, and I finally got a chance to try it. I didn't have enough packing peanuts saved up so I also used some other packing material I had on hand. I'll be curious to see how well it works because I'm sure the air bags will deflate with time and I can also see the peanuts getting moldy. But we'll see.
