Meet Lucy, my sweet plant friend. She’s been in my home and in my heart for over twenty years! Talk about faithful! Even when I forget to water her regularly she just hangs in there.
I trim her stems from time to time, but we both like them long for a full and feminine appearance!
I have been ‘into’ plants for many decades. They bring beauty and peace, most require minimal care, and they clean the air.
But this particular plant is my delight–kind of like a trusty house pet. Every morning when I come into the kitchen I pass by Lucy and she is simply ‘there.’ Her presence warms my heart, never disappoints me, and she is not jealous of my other leafy friends. I thinks she ‘knows’ she has a special place in my life.
I have learned from my old and dear friend to be patient, faithful, trusting, and to remain steadfast no matter what.
“I grow plants for many reasons: to please my soul, to challenge the elements, or to challenge my patience, for novelty or for nostalgia, but mostly for the joy in seeing them grow.”
