Good day friends. I have a problem. It is. Problem I am happy to share with you because, friends, it is not MY problem. You see when I get sad I buy plants.
Plants make me happy and therefore I need them when I am sad. Something about plants after watching a sad commercial or your sprinkler broke and you had to go into town anyway…
I, also, buy plants when I am happy, but I buy quite a few more plants when I am sad. I just find a reason. At first, I have none and then: boom. I like new plants especially if I do not have them already.
Regardless, I am a plant addict. I buy a lot of plants and I cry out, “but I bought them because they make me happy.” Not everyone is happy when I do this, but as I look into my plants I care a lot less.
I bought ornamental peppers this time. I bought four. I buy plants pretty often. I buy a few ‘secret plants’, that just appear planeted. It’s “Surprise, here is a cute plant i found, just lying around.”
This time I bought two and when my husband liked them I requested two more. I said I needed emotional support plants.
You didn’t know this… but my oldest is graduating in 2021. She will moving off to live with her dad and every time I think about it… I have to buy a plant.
I am not the one complaining therefore I do not have the problem. Regardless, I buy a lot of plants and i have decided that I shall share my adventures with you.
This is one of those moments when you go: that’s amazing. Is it amazing? My husband does not find it as amazing, but here we are with some new plants. Surprise plants that he will enjoy throughout the years.
This new one is called the Ornamental pepper. It is beautiful and it has peppers on it. Since I murdered lavender and that was what I was originally going to plant in front I decided that I would buy these to replace it because: why not?
They are very pretty, also, and maybe they will do better since i didn’t murder my bell peppers or my banana peppers this year. Hooray for happy plants.
I am excited because they are pretty and they can possibly shrub up to three feet which will cover the porch front. Nothing against porch fronts but green is my favorite color and I want my home to be my favorite place to be.
I am considering some viney plants to go up the porch but I also don’t want it everywhere. That is a debate for a later time.
Also, side note, when I am old I can dare people to eat the peppers.
It’s funny because they are edible and a chili pepper. If you would believe it these suckers are kind of spicy. I didnt warn my husband- to try it out. He went straight for the milk.
I warned my children, because I am a half decent mom. They did not believe me, because I am their mom and it was hilarious. I would do it again if I had the chance. 🤷♀️
It is going to be amazing to see what everything looks like next year. For now, I am pleased to see what happens this time with new plants in front.
More plants to come, but hopefully fewer plant homicides. I hope that part of my life is behind me.
