Soap, Pots, and Baby Lithops

I've been feeling a little better, so I'm using my minimal energy to make a few things, and tend some seedlings. I just received some beautiful Italian Lemon essential oil (from Italy), and some exceptionally fragrant lavender eo from a farm in Oregon. I combined them with my honey soap and made some aliens, as we were running low (on both aliens and soap):

Lemon Lavendar Aliens, squeaky clean.

And it was time to make the first PetraPots of 2013. More Tillies mean more pots.... I didn't let these drying greenware pots stand out in the rain, fortunately!

They and a few others are heading for the kiln today.  And of course, I wanted to water the Lithops seedlings; most have their first adult leaf pairs now. Each one is different!

You can see 4 very different types in the closeup. Doesn't mean they are different species of course (the seed packet was simply labeled Lithops), but time will tell. They are each quite attractive.

It's certainly nice to be up and about a bit once more. Lying around coughing was getting plain boring.


  1. Sorry to hear you were sick, glad you're feeling better now. :) The seedlings look really great! They're at about the same stage as my first batch of seedlings, although mine are fewer than yours. Love the 2013 pots & the Lemon Lavender Aliens sound divine. Best wishes! :)

  2. Aren't seedlings fun?? I love to see what they're up to.

  3. So glad you are feeling a little better! Your babies seem to be developing nicely and the alien soaps look (and sound) good enough to eat! Gail

  4. I am grateful for this blog to distribute knowledge about this significant topic. Here I found different segments and now I am going to use these new instructions with new enthusiasm.
