Plants > Cars

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.

Waximilian. Don’t worry; it’s spelled right. I looked up how to spell Maximilian, and then fixed it with a w.

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.

There are a gazillion different ways to spell Britney.

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!

Look at those freaky fuzzy legs! I love them so much!

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.
