That green thumb

I’m not sure when I realized I had a green thumb but I knew it was something special having tended to an Aloe Vera plant older than my ‘soon to be’ 16-year old daughter. My green thumb has been greener than usual lately since we’ve moved into our new house. I have plants and flowers everywhere. I don’t want to live without them. It takes me some time to water them all every 2 weeks, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. This post is dedicated to my greenery.

Hydrangeas have become my new favorite flower. I don’t know why I didn’t notice them before now. They’re absolutely beautiful on my dining room table.
Small plants in my bathroom so I can have a Zen experience: ZZ plant, African Violet, succulent, baby orchid, bromlead, & another one not in the picture. I also found a painting of hydrangeas I couldn’t pass up.
I love these plants. I only remember the Fiddly Fig’s name in the black pot. The others are tropical.
Not only is our home cat friendly (hence the cat trees and toys in the background), it’s plant friendly too. My Pothos plants LOVE it in this house because of all the light. They’ve been growing so well. I’ve never seen the leaves so healthy.
Snake plants ­č¬┤add pizzazz.
It’s been years since I’ve had my own African Violets. The kitchen window is the perfect place for them. My lucky Bamboo seems to like this window also.
There is no way I wouldn’t have a little plant collection in my home office. So cute.
In June, I returned to the office 2 days a week. We moved to a new office space & I’m thrilled to have an office with windows so my plants can thrive. My daughter painted the bird in between the 2 plants when she was itty bitty. I think it’s supposed to be a turkey.
It was important for me to display plants throughout my home, especially the entrance because I love them so much. This table is right outside my daughter’s bedroom.
Beautiful Succulent in my home office.
I can’t take credit for this lovely sunflower. My daughter has been doing all the work on this one. She planted them from seeds and watered them daily. I think she had at least 6 blooms from this batch.

I’ve since added plants to our back patio. I’ll share another time. In the mean time, what’s your favorite plant/flower?
