This silly little Coleus sits in a windowless office at channel 4, and yet look how happy she is anyway:

Blooming all by herself!

The Coleus started as an outdoor plant and a couple falls ago, I snipped lots of cuttings and threw them in random pots around town to see if they would overwinter. They all did. Even the ones I put in unlikely places, like this office that gets no sunlight. This particular plant is a little leggy, but I don’t mind. It’s just so cute that she’s growing at all.

And now that she’s flowering, I like her even more.


Good To Grow is an Albuquerque-based interior and exterior landscaping service. We use plants and flowers to decorate offices, homes and patios around the city. We also offer memorial garden services, meaning that when a loved one passes, we can plant a customized garden in his or her honor. If the person who passed was an avid cook, we can plant an herb garden to honor that person’s memory. If a Veteran dies, we can plant a red, white, and blue perennial flower garden. If you lost a beloved pet, we can plant a garden around the burial site.

If you’d like to know more about the landscaping or memorial garden services offered, please send an email to lizatheplantlady at gmail dot com. Thank you for your consideration.
