Those who follow this blog know that I use to have 150 house plants that I took in during the winter and put outside in the summer. I have less than a third that number now as I have given plants away but now I find myself with pots of the same plants (cannot throw cuttings away, I have to stick them in dirt) or HUGE plants that I cannot manage. This one is an Angel Wing Begonia which Mz Earle was so kind to give me long before she left planet Earth.
The palms came in a tiny little blue booty vase when Puppy was born. I long ago split it and put it in two square pots with filler plants. I have taken the back pot inside.
This is a Orange tree which was less than eight inches tall when I got it and now it is over five feet. I have it on rollers but with my back it is still too difficult to get inside plus I would have to cut it way back in order for it to fit.
Gran Dot brought this plant which we call "Poor Man's Orchid" to the hill years ago and I just have too many of these to keep this one.
This is a Lemon Tree and I got it at the same time I got the Orange tree. Until they got too large, I would put them in the Library and the past few years, I would cut them back and roll them into the shop room under a grow light to spend their winter.
Mimi said her sister Lucy brought this plant to her on one of her trips from California. I never met Lucy as she was sick and passed away right after Prince and I married. I do not know the name of this plant but when we visited San Diego, they had these as trees in the parks.
I have asked others if they would like them and Puppy will be checking with his friends as most of them could use them to accent a room. I also put them on Facebook wishing to avoid a death sentence for them.
However, it is too much for me to care for them any longer.
As Betsy said on her Facebook "a girl has to do what a girl has to do."
The Kitty Justice is it makes me sad to just leave them to the Cold world.
