Why can't I just compost them? Here are two of the three additional house plants that came over from next door. Now there are four. It's like getting a bunch of new pets that need to be fed, watered and fussed over. I don't need that. And they mess up the nice clean lines inside the cozy cabin. I should just toss them. If they were fake plants that would be oh so easy. But they are alive and I don't have the heart to toss them out just to watch them die.
I have been making an effort to create winter interest on a substantial scale outside even without greenery. A garden that can pull me outside 365 days a year negates the need for any indoor shrubberies. Perhaps the house plants can just be guests for the winter.
I only have to step out on to the front porch to be entertained by the garden. And there are many good views of it from inside.
I'll just have to see how it goes. Not a one more though. Four is the limit.
