Long time, no blog! It has been a busy, busy summer. I've been growing lots of plants and flowers, and I wanted to share just a few of my plant babies with you guys.
My favorites are the ones that look like they could be sea plants or animals...I don't know why...I just love them! I also really love the Donkey Tail plant, and I plan on transferring it to a hanging planter when it gets a little bigger. A couple of the leaves fell off and already started propagating themselves, which is cool, so new ones should continue growing in the same spot.
They've actually all had a major growth spurt since I took these photos about a week ago, and some of them are probably ready to move into bigger containers now.
It's funny, all the years we lived in apartments, I didn't really care about plants that much. They rarely lived very long, for one thing, and they seemed to be more work than they were worth. But now I get so excited at every new leaf and tiny bud that pops up. It has been really rewarding to watch all my plants grow the past couple of years, much more than I would've ever thought. And I totally feel like they make a room happier just by being there. Is that nuts? Am I officially an old lady now? Probably. Just leave me alone with my watering can and my house slippers. :)
