Love This Idea!

I got my new April edition of Better Homes & Gardens magazine the other day. The front cover was so, so, ssoooo full of spring, and hope, and great ideas! The person who came up with this cover should get a great big fat raise as far as I'm concerned!

I haven't even opened it up yet, I just keep checking out the front page! I have an indoor violet that has been knocking itself out for years in a small pot, blooming all year round. This spring it finally told me, in the only way it could, that it has had enough of that pot. It said, "It's like wearing a corset, and never having the relief of taking it off, for crying out loud!" It has started to separate itself into four different plants.

When I saw this cover, I had my lightbulb moment! I will separate that violet and plant them in little egg containers to give to others for Easter! Wouldn't that be cute??? Hope I can do it without totally breaking the eggs!

What a brilliant idea. I don't normally give Easter presents but I'll have to find someone to make these for... I've got just the plant as well. It's like an Aloe and it has lots of little babies.

Aloe would be great in one. Now that you mention it, I have a spider plant that has gobs of babies right now too!

That's such a great gift idea! Everyone will love them. Thanks for sharing this idea. I'm always on the look out for creative ways to send my love during a holiday season!
