Come chat with us! Big Grin

I am all moved into my new 1000 sq foot home...wow. I downsized from 2,800 to this over a 5 year period. Several garage sales, lots of give-aways. Easy to keep clean but I miss a backyard so much.

Having 14 plants on the balcony isn't the same. Of all things I miss the most (besides the color!) is the hose...I used to love watering my plants...and my feet to cool off.

And of all the plants I somehow forgot to take was an Arizona Poinsettia, one of my favorites. Now I need one!

I don't have an Arizona Poinsettia but have more than enough spider plants and a couple types of wandering jew that have taken over the front grotto area!! Let me know if you need/want any!! You guys done good on recommending just the right plants for that area Smiling It's a small jungle out there!

haha, Christine... I used to be the Spider Plant addict...still love them and have two that have multiple babies. And I have 3 varieties of wandering jew so am set. Just need AZ Poinsettias. I can't believe it! How could I have left so many in the ground?????

I'm so glad those plants have worked well for your shady area.

WELL. Hmmmmmmm.
Very odd that you should show this vid, Alan. First week in June I slammed my thumb in the car door. It hurt like heck and I wondered if the nail would eventually fall off. It's worse looking than the dude in this video. I thought about releasing the pressure... something my grandfather said to do. He was fastidious with his nails and hands.

Glad I finished my lunch before watching... but, really ... I don't have a weak stomach.
