The sun is sitting lower in the sky these days...
... as it passes by the dining room window.
It remains to be seen if the Spicy Globe basil will adapt to being inside.
When I brought it in last week because of an overnight frost warning, it was potted in the huge plastic container that sat on the deck all summer.
That just wasn't going to work for two reasons. #1, the pot was humongous and, #2, the pot was ugly. This clay pot is much more attractive and a much better size.
So far, so good. I trimmed a lot of 'brown' off the ends of the basil. I think they had already gotten a bit too cold before being brought inside.
This is a southern exposure window, so hopefully it will be a sunny enough location.

About 20 years ago we had this bay window installed in the dining area. Before that, it was just solid wall.

I can't even imagine the dining room without this sunny window now.
The basil plant can't either.
Completely off topic, I've been subbing in addition to painting and transcribing lately. Being self-employed means never knowing how much work - or how little work- will come in each month, so in addition to painting and transcribing from home, I've been subbing lately. Can you guess what day it was at school yesterday? Yes, indeed - Red Sox Day!
I'm joining Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show & Tell Friday today.
I hope you all have a great week!
