|One of my neglected Spider Plants.|
|I have just let these plants linger, bunch all up together|
and in need of tender loving care.
Well.....water would help!
Shhh......don't tell that plant in the
center front that he is going to the hospital!
|This bowl of succulents has great potential. |
I will clean it up and move it somewhere else.
|My Plant Hospital.|
Okay....so hear comes the weirdo in me. As I am doing this....a very zen task I may add.... I start to see characteristics in these little babies that are kinda human. Like this one......
Most of them are tiny, but large enough to use as saplings (don't know if I am allowed to call a spider baby that, but oh well, I am.) Then I find this one.....
|Out of Wedlock Teenage Pregnancy|
This one has sprouted another baby all on it's own. I call it a Pregnant Teenager. (I know, I am weird.)
I don't separate the two babies above, I just can't do it. They seem destined to be together.
I clean clump by clump while making these ridiculous observations. Makes me think of all the interconnectedness of nature and people. I love working with plants. It somehow connects me with the earth and gives me a sense of stewardship to nature.....
I worked on other gardening, back patio stuff today as well and will reveal the results tomorrow. It's spring time wherever you live! Get out there and spruce things up! The only way I learned how to save these babies was by doing. Heck, set yourself up a little sweet location for your very own plant hospital! You will have a place other than the trash to send your plants too with the hopes that they too will have a glorious recovery!
OH! and.....Don't forget to drink plenty of water! (My friend, Ted is better at remembering that than I am!)
