I have always wanted a green thumb. After many plants died under my care, I sadly assumed that I was not a person who loves plants. A sweet friend gave me a Spider Plant. It grew, thrived and made my life so stinking sweet! 

It was a solitary creature until it began to have babies.

The next thing I know, I have pots and pots full of spider plants. While I love them, this many plants is just too much for me to maintain. Some of the new babies would not be able stay. I just couldn’t toss them out. 

I have an idea…

I decided to recycle all the yogurt containers, plastic containers, and other containers we had in our recycling into temporary planters. It was great fun making these, and I used some of the extra bits and bobs that I had lying around. 

I made signs that I stuck in the ground by gluing them to popsicle stick.

I wrote brief instructions for anyone who is a novice in the world of plants. I also gave each plant a name because…why? Who wouldn’t want to grow a plant named Rosie?! Each one was named after a grandmother of mine. 

I thought about where I would leave these plants. I often go to the post-office to drop off my book orders. I often see people in a bad mood at the post office. I love the employees at the post-office (I have many friends there), but everyone else seems to be in a bad mood. I also meet a number of older friends…who appear to be a little lonely. We talk a lot. I think they’d like a flower. 

I decided to leave some of them at the post office for someone to find and love. 

I also left some outside at a popular mall for moms to find with their children. Maybe a project that they could do together!

I was worried sick about these plants for the rest the day! Next time I will add my social media so they can be shared and posted…and I will know that they are loving their home.

I am looking forward to doing this again. I wanted to share this in case you too have too many plants friends!
