I just realized I don't know where my philodendron, 'Moonlight' is?? IDK if it died in the greenhouse(these things they happen), I gave it away (doubt it), or where I put it?(like my yard is that huge? Nope!) That would mean truly I have too many plants to take care of! OR I need to go shop for a replacement. Thumbs up

Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Is the pot still there? Is it empty?

Whenever I cannot find something I go and buy another one. Then, when I get ready to put the new thing away, I always find the original thing in the exact same spot. (This is why I now have 3 pairs of fabric scissors, 2 garden carts, ...and extras of lots of things. *Blush* )

It's really gone, guys. Confused Crying I searched and searched yesterday between rain storms. It was driving me batty. When a plant dies I am sad. I practically hold funerals for them! I don't remember this one dying? Confused This one needs to be moved to the, "You know you are old when" thread in the Sandbox. Thumbs down

Thanks for the offer @RpR. Indeed this is not a difficult plant to replace except it was sentimental like most of my plants. I got the plant to cheer up my husband for his bedside in 2012 when he was diagnosed with cancer a second time. Good news is the cancer is gone and I guess the plant went with it! So maybe it's good riddance? I just mourn the loss of one more than the other.

That's why I have 2 shuffle-hoes, 2 rakes, and more quick-connect hose connections than I need. LOL!

Sad to hear you lost it, did you really look everywhere. I would say a plant can not just disappear

well if it is gone, the pot and all must have went with it, that makes me think you gave it away, or someone took it. If you just decided to get rid of the plant, or it died, you would have tossed the plant, but kept the pot?

I lose my right glove in the gardens. Day or weeks later, I have found them in the compost, in debris I am about to burn, even under a plant I planted a few years earlier. If a company would just sell me right gloves I would never have to buy a set again.

My glasses are buried in my yard somewhere? They were my favorite pair! I have no clue as to why i even took them off?

I am looking for my favorite trowel! It has a black handle and can be difficult to keep track of. The others have more colorful handles and are much easier to find.
