But...due to time and age factors (both mine and my plants) I have cut my numbers significantly....(the plants..NOT my age)  haha.....  My next several posts will be about amusing plants stories...yes...they can make you smile once in a while...
Just like any longtime friend will do!!

Keep smiling.
