The crazy plant lady...it's me
Here's the deal. Every time I go to Lowe's, I can't help but swing over by the house plant section to see what may be set out on a clearance deal. Usually the plants are dying, but they are marked down to a small fraction of the original cost. They are like little plant orphans. I can't help myself. African violets for a quarter. Ivies for a dime. Larger, varied colored tropicals for two or three dollars. They all sit there looking needy, and I know I can help them. With a few bucks, a little time, the sun from this south facing window, and a routine watering, I can take some horrible looking plant off death's door step and freshen up the air in my house. Well, at least that's what I tell myself anyway.
So, today, I admit to you, the public (who I will probably never have to face), I, Emily Culbertson, have a plant problem.
