I missed the solstice this year.  I had an idea of a way to celebrate, but I was overcome by obstacles. It has been the same all year, the creative things I want to do are being thwarted by rebellious computers, an onslaught of dentists and, special for June, a cat (Voltaire) with a mysterious illness. I am trying to find a way to get things done in spite of the stress. I need to find a way to make the obstacles less imposing. 

The cuttings I made in April grew lots of roots. Leaves were sprouting underwater, so I decided they had to go into the soil before they became aquatic.

The potted philodendrons are a little spindly. I have to wait until they are stronger to put them out.

I think they will settle in and flourish.

The devil's ivy cuttings were happier being planted.

One of the cuttings I planted in April is doing really well so I will put it out first. I have decided to put one plant out at a time, finding a good spot for each one. I have an idea of using garden twine  them more difficult to remove by wrapping it around the pot over and over. Without a pair of scissors, it should be harder to take.
