Conversations are endless when it comes to plants. The stories and information respectfully given and gained is indeed wonderful. It starts with “I have a plant” and the communications flow. Amazed by the intriguing minds of the green world. Today; a story touched an emotion and, in a way must be shared.


A lady gracefully browsed the plants with a selection of starter plants on her cart as she was accompanied by a younger gal. Trendy succulents were the chosen plants. As I approached to say my hellos I made mention of my favorite variety of her chosen selections. Thoughts were the plants were intended for the younger gal when I quickly realized that they were instead for the graceful lady who welcomed the service of the shopping cart. My experience… the mature person teaches the younger individual but today it was the opposite. Their calm excitement of these two shopping for a trendy use of plants brought a smile to my face. Time shared; knowledge gained; something grown!
