Winter is always a crappy time for me. I get the seasonal depression/winter BLAHS! rather badly and kind of crawl under a rock by about mid winter. I've got a stack of resin casts waiting to be prepped for painting, but winter makes it difficult to do that too, especially with no garage or basement to work in. Not about to sit outside with a dremel in a polar vortex! (And forget spraying primer on 'em) With the days getting longer now though, motivation is creeping back. Savage Goldfish are solar-powered.
I did take the opportunity this winter to pick up a new hobby though--carnivorous plants. Particularly Nepenthes pitcher plants--I have three baby ones I'm taking care of so far. Just starting to grow their first little pitchers! I've always loved the old pitcher plant, and on a whim thought I'd see if you can keep them as houseplants. Surprise! You can! At least, some of the more non-fussy species. I've sacrificed most of my painting table to the Green Man, but at least I had some nice green living things to look at during the winter, while everything else was brown and grey.
