Spider Plants in Kitty Pots
Spring is creeping into New England like a homeless waif dressed in soggy, mudsmeared clothes.  I wish I were as brave as the birds, singing despite the rainy afternoon, or as content as my humble jade plant, thriving in a dark, dry corner...

The spider plant is the most disgustingly easy plant to propagate.  I have had a cluster of cuttings in a small green glass for many months now, and it thrives merrily on the sunny kitchen windowsill, roots entwining lustily as the crisp green blades multiply and crowd.  Today I transplanted two small variegated plants into a serendipitous pair of kitty pots I have.  Acquired at different times, one is black, sitting with his head to the right, while the other is white, sitting with her head to the left.  Singly they are generic, but paired they are an evocative, charming set.  Cheek to cheek, with similar plants in them, they are a mute testament that what is different can still be alike.  And spider plants aren't toxic to domestic animals, should a real kitty feel the urge to sample their green goodness.
