And her plants.
Meet Barry, a Philodendron planted in a wine bottle; Lady Jane, a tropical Anthurium, and Fluffy Ruffy, a Fluffy Ruffle Fern of the Boston Fern family. The only other college student Ella Dos knows who kept plants in a dorm room was her Big Sis, Ella Numera Una.Barry, between you & moi, is an experiment provided to the chica by her madre. Barry's the one who comes out smelling like roses in this deal, if you ask me. On the other hand, Lady Jane, methinks, might need watering. And Fluffy? Perhaps a little too much on the H20?
But wait...there's more...
Here we have the dorm vets. They're used to the late nite pizza runs & other college hijinx & janx. Meet Lars, Bertha & Julio. A Philodendron, a Spider Plant & another ~ you guessed it! ~ Philodendron. And actually, Julio's the progeny of Lars, so he's really a newcomer this year, too.
The reason Bertha is so petite? She actually commuted back & forth from college last year. She came home for Spring Break last March because Ella thought she was doing poorly. Being a good madre & all, I re-potted Bertha, fertilized her & put her in some lovely indirect lite. Where she was promptly consumed, down to the dirt-line, by this creature...
Here's Pepper, sleeping off last spring's late-afternoon snack. The good news, though, is that in the wake of the Spring Break Massacre, Bertha came back from the brink of death & was able to make the trip back to college again this year.
We're going green today courtesy of Candid Carrie & her Friday Foto Finish Fiesta. A quick disclaimer: No plants nor kitty cats were harmed in the taking of these fotos, all by Ella Numera Dos. TGIF!
