I finally liberated the ivy I've had rooting in an old milk bottle for the last...um....two years. They're cuttings from ivy that we had on the tables at our wedding. I don't know how they've managed to survive, but they have. Today I transplanted them into a pot (with actual dirt) and put it on our kitchen windowsill where I hope they will grow and flourish for many more years.
It's nice to be able to nurture something. It's really, really nice.
