“Happiness,” said Ogden Nash, “is having a scratch for every itch”.
My green thumb had to be scratched this week. In a big way.
I’m not sure when, but I started a succulent collection. I love to indulge in what I call ‘pretty little things’, that just make me smile. Dave says I remind him of a kid at the candy store buying penny candy.
Last summer, I placed tiny plants and funky little containers all over the garden. On tabletops, in displays etc…They were such a fun element of whimsy.
My studio is housing my collection right now. One day this week I divided, repotted, separated new babies and took pictures.
My green thumb got a great workout.
Part of the fun is cleaning up and reorganizing. As I cleaned off table tops and containers I enjoyed my abundance.
I couldn’t leave well enough alone, I expressed my frustration that my baby plant holding pen is getting over-crowded. I have 99 plants inside my house right now.
It’s time for an intervention. Dave’s words not mine.
It’s too much right?
I’d like to go back in time and keep those words to myself.
