Plant Parenthood

Here’s a little play on words! I hope you won’t take me too seriously. Maybe you’ll even spare me a chuckle when you hear latest adventure. If you are like me and the other seniors who have retired from work and children, you might be feeling a lack of responsibility. An absence of purpose, perhaps. Without an alarm clock or daily meals with the family, life seems to fly by. But I don’t have time to waste and neither should you! That’s why I joined Plant Parenthood!


What is Plant Parenthood you ask? Over the years I have filled my home with earthly plant friends. They are constantly working to keep my air clean and living room fresh. All they ask for in return is a cup of water and a window of light! I adopt all plants, big and small. Their presence helps me relax and take long naps. They reduce carbon dioxide and put out oxygen.


Which plants might work for your home? I started by asking my local gardener. She recommended all sorts of varieties, I started with one and added more just for fun!


I am moving my home and all of my plants. To a new place that’s just by my son Lance. Pop in for a spell if you do get the chance. There you can see me do the Plant Parenthood dance!


Keep Smiling!
