Plant Life

Chris has finally succeeded in getting me into plants, just not the plants he'd hoped. For months now he's been into growing carnivorous plants and hoped that I'd get into them so that we could grow them together. Instead, I got really into succulents and cacti.

Now I find myself just as excited as he is to go to Lowe's and look for more plant stuff because I can expand my garden. I even broke off a part of it to make a small one for my sister to take with her to college. And Chris was right, it is relaxing. Getting to sit outside with my plants, look at how much they've grown, pull weeds, plant other plants, and just care for them is a huge comfort. It calms me down and reminds me to take a breath from my crazy life and remember that it's okay to relax. I like it. So here's to gardening and growing new life!
