I'm a big fan of houseplants but, for whatever reason, I've never had a lot of them. I had a hard time keeping them alive. This was true from the time I was a kid until well into adulthood.
However, I have two plants that have managed to live for four years and stay healthy. That gave me hope that I may have managed to trade my black thumbs in for some green ones. Or at least yellow-brown. That would be an improvement.
This afternoon, I went to a nursery and picked up some more houseplants. They look so pretty! It's funny how a few plants can improve the whole mood of a room.
I also couldn't resist a few little critters to place in the plants. Seriously, isn't that crab in the top picture adorable?
Here's hoping I can keep these new plants alive and growing!
