Plants Gone Wylde!

So, I'd been worrying about Devika's plants. I figured while everyone was gone, they probably wilted and died. And that would be super sad. 

I should've known better. I went to check on them, but first, I stopped by C&M.

 I brought a new flower to put in the window, but maybe not just yet.

C&M is a DISASTER! Apparently I should've been worrying about my coffee shop instead of Vee's plants!

I couldn't get very far in the door, but I did manage to rescue the plant out of the coffee shop. They can come live at my house until C&M is fixed up and ready for them.

So then I headed off to "Just Between Fronds", where I found good news and bad news.

 The good news being: Vee's plants are doing just fine.

The bad news being: they might be doing a little TOO "fine".

 I couldn't even get in the door! They've taken over the whole shop!!! What was I even worried about?

I'm pretty sure I saw the momma Eyeris plant in there, blinking at me. So she must be okay. That's a relief.

 I'll have to to come back with some pruning shears.

 Or perhaps a machete.

But at least the plants are okay and not dead, I guess. We're about to have a bunch of new cuttings in the plant shop. I hope there are enough pots for them all.

So, my housewarming plant from Norm's found it's way to my music room, where it seems quite happy.

The two C&M plants are hanging out on my porch, waiting for me to get the shop cleaned up so they can move back in. But it's a nice porch. They'll be okay here for a while. 

I've got lots of work to do. I'll clean up the coffee shop, but first I think I should deal with the plants. The books don't care if they're laying on the floor, but the plants are living things, so they've got to be dealt with first.

Now if I can just remember where I put my machete.

  1. Oh my goodness Miranda, the poor coffee shop looks like a bit of a mess. Good luck with clearing it up. Hope you find your machete, I mean pruning shears to trim the plants back as well. Looks like you have your work cut out for you.

  2. And I thought the plants here were out of control! If you need an Eyeris cutting, let me know. I've watched Maddy root plants; it can't be that hard.

  3. Great to hear from you, Miri! I just love your mini updates! xo Jennifer

  4. Oh, your poor coffee shop :-( Good luck clearing that up, there's nobody around to give you a hand. As for the plants gone jungle... hehe, better this than them dying. You sure have your work cut out for you!
