I knew it was only a matter of time…
Notice anything missing?…
Here is a hint for you…
Yeah, I used to have plants in there…
When I made my list of Goals for 2014,
I didn’t bother saying I wanted to take better care of my plants.
I knew better than to set myself up for an epic fail…
(This picture was taken when on of the palms was new.)
For the past few weeks, the palms in my office weren’t doing very well. Not surprising, because I basically kill every plant I own. I tried cutting back the dying leaves a few times and then yesterday morning I took a closer look.
Have you ever had to deal with those nasty things?
I had them on a palm many years ago and went through weeks of spraying and wiping leaves until one day I just threw in the towel and threw out the plant.
This time I knew better. These palms cost me $7.00 a piece on sale at Lowe’s so I wasn’t about to invest any time in de-miting them….
Goodbye pretty palms.
Thanks for making my office look tropical for a short time.
And it really doesn’t feel tropical with this outside!
Here is the view this morning.
In fact, this view is becoming common around here.
I think we got about a foot of snow yesterday.
I guess we should have covered the deck furniture…
Well, someone is having fun today!
But even Rosie didn’t want to stay out too long
in the 3 degree temperatures!
So back to the office…
Now I just have to figure out what to put in these empty spaces.
My office feels naked now.
Have you ever dealt with spider mites?
Can you keep plants alive?
Will this winter ever be over?…
