Spring Planting

It felt like spring today, with temps in the 80's, so Leia and I did a bit of planting.
 
An amaryllis for me - a gift from Marie, Scott and Leanne at Christmas;
 

and an avocado tree for Leia.
Leia did all the playing in the dirt dirty work on the amaryllis, going back again and again, even hours later, to make sure the dirt was just so.
 
We put the avocado seed in a clear glass so she can watch the roots sprout and the stems start to grow. 
 
Given my brown thumb, that may be as far as we get. But hope springs eternal, right? Maybe these plants will beat the odds.
