Mom called: “Come over and get your Christmas present. It’s green,” adding a bemused half laugh to her statement.
I laughed as well. She always gives us a check so we can buy want we want.
Apparently this year green took on a new meaning. It was quite literal.
Mom decided the little palm tree plant that had fit so perfectly in the corner of her living room had outgrown its decorative touch.
What does one do with a largish palm tree plant that is unexpectedly gifted? Decorate it for Christmas, of course.
If we still have it by Easter we will be ready for Palm Sunday.
😀 My son wanted to hang ornaments on our houseplants.
And did you let him?
… the plants have, for some unknown reason, been dropping leaves like they’re under some sort of stress…
Isolation has that affect on living things. I’m finding lots of lost hairs around the house. Stress shed is a real deal.
The current decibel level might also contribute to mine. 🙂
I hope you stop losing hairs soon!
I don’t mind losing the grey ones. Have you considered ear plugs😉
LOL, at least your mom gave you a plant that wasn’t on its last leg. She has a green thumb. Merry Christmas!
It is indeed healthy—there is concern it will outgrow it’s corner soon.
I would LOVE one of those!!
They start out small, apparently. Check out Home Depot.
I bought one at Home Depot. Never again. $70 for $20 worth of plants? One has already died. The second one is heading that direction.
Oh.Oh. A dead or dying plant ‘tis a sad circumstance.
