Houseplants

 
Sorry there was no post yesterday. I don't mean for this to become a habit, but a whole line of thunderstorms started before 10 pm, and we had to unplug and didn't dare connect again until this morning.

Marie did arrive yesterday late afternoon. Today we cleaned up the kitchen and then decided to repot and clean up my houseplants. They sure needed it!

I should have taken a "before" picture. Wait, maybe I don't want to show you that sad mess.

Anyway, they are much happier looking now!

I've cut down on most things that aren't succulents. In fact, the only non-succulents left are a spider plant, a pothos, and one pot of streptococcus. Oh yeah, and a couple of dracena.

So, many of the plants got new pots, and they all got fed and cleaned up. It's not very artistically arranged, but it looks much better!

A house doesn't seem like a home without at least one spider plant. We've always called ours "Spidey." In Spanish that plant is called "la mala madre," the bad mother. That's because she kicks out her children.
