Noun - green thumb
An exceptional aptitude for gardening or for
growing plants successfully
House plants provide much pleasure for the city dweller with a green thumb. . . . .
. . . . . and you can always cheat a little bit!
You just knew, didn't you? It didn't take long to realize I was not satisfied with
two planters taking up all that dining room table space!
We don't eat every meal there but when we do
it's good not having to move too many items, including faux plants.
Yes, tried placing them UP on the top of the Welsh dresser - much too close to
the ceiling - I wish I had high ceilings. Cottage style homes don't of course!
I decided to split the planters - leaving just one on the table - and this is working well.
Yesterday morning when granddaughter Jasmin came
for breakfast (she's dog sitting for my neighbors this weekend), we indulged
in fresh-made fruit smoothies with scrambled egg croissants and had plenty of
room to eat.

The second planter I've placed here on the hearth, lightening it up,
bringing a little more of a summery feel to the living room.
Heavy rain last evening - I swear the grass grew an inch over night.
Today is so humid - the only garden activity here will be squirrels, birds,
and I see my very tiny chipmunk already out there munching on
dropped seeds under the bird feeder.
Have a good Sunday - 'see you' here during the week!
