At it again
Well i am going to turn things around!
Last mothers day (and happy belated mothers day to all you
mothers out there) my mom gave me a pot of Hen and chicks.
I told her that she had sentenced them to their death....however
a whole year later they are alive and multiplying! So i have
concluded that i can keep a plant alive, as long as it can
be neglected. Nice.
So hen and chicks are a variety of succulents...so i asked my boss,
who knows all about plants, and one thing lead to another and we
were off to Walters! They have everything you could ever imagine.
called Campfire i think, and i have no idea what the little ones are.
The only thing is that most of their plants didn't have the info sticks
in them. These guys need to be brought in, in the winter, so i planted them
in an old watering bucket. (yes, i poked holes in the bottom)
And the bucket gives it that nice country charm ;)
and everyone is happy...i guess....we haven't had much sun, and
a ton of rain so they are probably a little irritated....but they
put on a good show for me :) and yes, i do talk to them every day.
keep something related to a cactus alive, i have no seance being in the country!
Did any of you mothers get flowers to plant yesterday? Or anyone
going some green thumbing themselves? Do tell!!
