I went to Lowes this weekend to pick up just a couple of things and at the back of the store on a cart were a selection of plants that were dying from mistreatment at the hands of lackadaisical Lowes employees. They were all marked down (as they should be considering the state they're in!) So I bought a few new house plants.
When I got married I had dozens of plants, but with the coming years and move after move after move, I ended up leaving most behind. I never really got around to replacing them all even after settling at the farm for so long.
