I inherited my green thumb from my Mom. She could take a withered dead looking houseplant, love it and care for it and within a month it would look like a plant that could win a prize at the State Fair! I LOVE plants in my home, especially during the winter months when everything is dark, white and dead looking. I have them on my windowsill above my kitchen sink so when, in the darkness of winter, I can look at their green alive looking “faces” and be reminded that winter is a season, and it too will pass into another season (which is my favorite one!). The Bible says this about seasons:
For everything there is a season……. Ecclesiastes 3:1
So, having said all that…… here is a combination that is NOT a good thing. Put a house FULL (every room mind you) of plants and introduce TWO 9 month old feline sisters to the mix and you get this:
Not a pretty picture is it?
Look at this pretty face…….could something that sweet be THIS evil??
Thank goodness I work in a casual small office with lots of windows and sills. With the help of my husband, we loaded up all my plants and brought them to the office and spread them ALL over! Since they have arrived, many of our clients (we are a small insurance agency and we get a lot of client traffic ) have made comments about them.
My favorite type of plant is the cactus, but I love just about everything green! Let me show you a few of the plants decorating our office!
And then there is the window sill right nest to my desk filled with plants.
Then my fave cactus and the one that gets the most comments from our clients who come into the office is my Brain Cactus. I did not make that name up, it is really called that! What do you think?
