Planty's New Digs - And Other Green News

Today I put Planty back in his old pot - the one he called home in D.C., for many a year.

I had to transfer Planty to a smaller, flimsy, plastic pot after the awful culling I had to give him earlier this year. With his smaller size and my "gypsying" ways the enormous, super-heavy old pot just wasn't an option.

After convalescing in the plastic pot for a while now, Planty has gathered his strength and some of his size back... It was time to move him home.

Before you know it he'll be completely his old self again - attacking people who come through my front door in the same way he prevented people from going in my kitchen at old 304!

In other plant news:

I bought a pretty pink plant the other day that I also potted this morning. I have no idea yet where to put it, but I think it will be a nice addition to the ol' homestead. The goal is to slowly rebuild my personal botanic gardens after I lost pretty much all my plants - except Planty (thank the Lord) and one other - during the move back.

And finally: the fall bouquet Jonna brought me as part of a housewarming gift last weekend when she and Linds came over for dinner. Aren't they nice!

Ooooh, I love that rustic coffee table. Very shabby chic.

Oh, Planty! I was so worried!

I love your coffee table. I want one just like it!

That coffee table is really neat, Kimberly. I loved it when we were there. Planty looks very comfortable in his old pot, with room to spread his legs. I think possibly that the new plant is a kalanchoe, not sure. It's really pretty. I purchased some beautiful mums in Herrin this week, so our front stoop looks very Fall-ish.
