Doozey and my plant pets too!
Hello!!! It has been a while since I posted...so much going on, or rather NOT going on, but I was just too busy!!!
I took pictures of Doozey being a real snuggle puppy...as you will see later in this post... how she lays down with the length of her whole body RIGHT UP NEXT TO YOU! Sometimes I am too hot to let her stay...but mostly I try to move her a little just to get some air! She snuggles around my neck (my favorite), and right up next to me on the couch! She is, as my DIL always says, a "hot mess"!!! :) I always said I wanted a chihuahua pillow, and when she gets around the back of my neck, she becomes just that!!!
I looked at my little pet succulents today and thought it was time to show you all a few pics again... of their cuteness!!! I do love them. I think that other than their cuteness factor, I love them because they thrive on neglect and they never talk back!!! They are never out getting into any kind of trouble. They are just CUTE! Doesn't just the sound of that calm your nerves??? :)
And, just before I show them to you, I have to tell you one of the things that has occupied some of my time. It is addicting, and a very enjoyable pastime when you are waiting for something (like a job)...
Weed pulling in your yard grass. I seriously am wondering about myself! I tell myself I think I can get rid of the weeds the old fashioned way...no sir-ee...I do not need Weed and Feed. LOL. I get focused in (and even sitting down to work on larger patches of them), and work for quite a while...only to stand back up and see a million more patches everywhere! It is impossible. NOW, I just tell myself it is a meditative activity I can do to calm my nerves and I think tomorrow I will take out iced tea and snacks! LOL.
So...here are my pet plant babies:
My euphorbia, whose name is REX (decorated with multicolored lights for a festive atmosphere in screenroom). They run all the way around along the trellis.
Mexican Love Plant...it goes hot pink in full sun! Sent from California.
The wild and crazy (needs to still be divided), is it Haworthia of some sort???
Aloe (saved from the side of the road here).
This one came from California, but I can't remember it's name. I just call them all "Cuteee"! This one has been a very slow grower.
Tillandsias, or air plants. I have been watering them more after losing some to non-watering...I found out they need a drink every few weeks too!!!
Variagated gasteria. This one is so sculptural...I fell in love with it on first sight years ago and HAD to bring it home!
Kalanchoe (Flippin Flapjacks)
Kalanchoe (Donkey Ears)...sent to me from San Antonio, Texas! They are so beautiful!
Huernia (started from a small cutting from my SIL in Mooringsport, Louisiana). It looks so cool...especially when in bloom!
Now a few shots of the SNUGGLER, doing what she does best!!! (Love it)!!!
