I went to the home store last night to pick up a hanging plant for our kitchen window. It's that time of year where all the green is gone, and that can feel a little depressing. It turned out that other people had the same idea because the two people in front of me at the checkout had made a special trip for houseplants too.
I'm not a great plant mother, so I stick to hardier plants like succulents and cacti. Honestly, I even managed to make a cactus go flaccid the other day. It was pretty freaky. I think I over watered it (that's a first). I'm getting better though, and hoping that that healthy plants will give us a bit of a boost over these long months ahead.
