Not much for you....

But my lucky bamboo!

Lucky Bamboo
Heh! Got this at eye-kea and had it in a small vase. But my friend NC Christine (hey I have a lot of friends named Christine! ;)

She helped me pick out another vase and added these small river rocks that are hiding a natural sponge. (I guess you can use any sponge) So I put the sponge in first, surrounded it by the rocks partway, stuck in the bamboo, and finished filling around it to support it.

Now all I do is check the water level every few days..

Still knitting going on around here, should have a small FO in a day or so. Been a bit more tired than usual. Hoping to get more energy soon! I have a sweater to finish...or two ;)

I've always wanted to see if those bamboo can survive long periods of time. Go bamboo go!!

So pretty!! I look at those every time I go to Eye-Kia. Haven't bought one yet though. You take it easy and get lots of rest, okay?

I've always wanted one of those bamboo plants! I wonder how long they actually last. they look so pretty when they are displayed like you have it.

Now, you make sure you take plenty of naps and get all the rest you need.

I love bamboo; I have one on my desk at work. They're so easy to take care of (and they're good luck to boot)!

Get lots of rest; I hope your energy returns soon :-)

My friend Hubbs, back in England, has a great one of those bamboos. She's had it quite a few years now. It's on her downstairs bathroom window. I love it. Really tall and curly. I like your arrangement with the rocks. You've really got the green fingers this year, haven't you :0)

I like your lucky bamboo. I didn't know you could put a sponge in the bottom like that - makes sense though!

Very nice! I have the same vase, with sand and pebbles on top, and some weird grass-like stuff in the middle. Not green, because I have the black thumb.
