I have had this plant, sometimes call a "Mother in Law's" tongue, and since Patient Husband has been helping with the watering..he doesn't know which ones to water lightly, not at all or daily! It's not his fault. Plants have never been one of his strong points he says.
Yeah..I know! A real mess!
So when I discovered this mess I decided to try and save it. I pulled it all out and let it dry out.
I repotted it in fresh soil and saved most of my old friend. It's so old I don't even remember where it came from.
I tucked this little piece that was left into the little tin bucket on the red bistro table..it will be happy there and have lots of company. Plants LOVE company, just like people! :)
The little table top is much more crowded now as you can see in the photo above. But the more the merrier, I say.
With seven children, you probably already know that about me! :)
..Ahh well..now where was I?
Oh yes, I need to be a better plant mom. Would you look at that POOR fern under the table?! It has been like that forever, but I just cannot throw it out. However..it's on very thin ice right now.
This beautiful little hot house rose was a gift..and I thought it was dead. I sat the pot on this little ladder out in the warm son...and I just noticed..it is singing it's praises to the Lord! :)
No wait! That's me! :) I was so happy it lived!
I think these little step ladders make great end tables on the patio. See? See how much it's grown in just a week or two??
This is my most favorite table top..my hutch. I fiddle with it..but my Brambly Hedge tea set and books stay right here. They belong together..and the china was a gift from my children..a piece or two at a time. First came the dishes...then the tea pot and so on. I found the set of books at a garage sale. 25 cents each! The hutch is nearing 40 years old now.
Tha, tha, that's all folks! My tabletops for Tuesday.
