Don't become pot-bound


I was having fun putting all the different colours and textures on this page, when I had the urge to add stamped leaves. I resisted to start with, having done quite a few pages lately with these leaves on it. But you know how it is when the urge takes hold. So the leaves went down in one corner. It felt like a pot plant to me, so I made it so 😊

Once the plant was on there, I had to ask myself why. Why was it particularly a plant in a pot?

If we grow but don't move forward, it is easy to become pot-bound. A plant needs to be in a pot with room to grow. Not so large that it is lost within it, but large enough that it can put its roots in more deeply and stretch a little.

Are you in a pot-bound situation? Have you outgrown where you are?

What can you do about it?

  14. I think we need to jeep extending our zone...unless we do that we won't grow. Working out of the comfort zone, expanding our limits, going out of the way is the only way we can create new routes and new horizons.
    That pot and the plant is definitely a great addition. Loved the thought!
