I’ve finally decided to do that most adult of things in life.
I got a houseplant.
Actually, I got 3. One as a housewarming gift from my friends, Sarah and Lea (Mabel, the Orchid), and two as a gift to my black thumb to try and turn it back to green again (Fred, the Cactus and Tina, the Succulent/Echeveria).
Mabel, Fred and Tina will make recurring appearances here and my adventures in houseplant keeping will be chronicled for all to see. Well, if I can keep an animal alive, I can surely keep 3 plants alive too, right?! I have a feeling the Royal Horticultural Society website is going to become my new best friend.
