Since my car died, and I haven’t been able to get a new one, I’ve been cheering myself up by buying plants. Plants are better than cars.
This is my new wax plant! His name is Waximilian.
This is the ivy plan Zeb accidentally pulled up while purposely pulling up plants on a landscaping job. Her name is Britney Spears. I wish I’d taken a before and after – when she arrived, she looked pretty rough, like Britney’s K-Fed shaved-head days, but I cleaned her up, did some pruning, recorded some new music, got her some acting gigs, and she’s looking a lot better these days.
And this is our new rabbit’s foot fern, Franny. I get why they call it a rabbit’s foot fern, but I wish it were called a tarantula fern. They really look more like cute little tarantula legs!
If you’ve used plants to cheer yourself up, post pictures of them in the comments! I’d love to know I’m not alone in this.
