All the houseplants in the foyer got a cleaning/pruning/soaking, and foyer got a cleaning. Which was fine, it was overdue anyway.
Why now, you ask?
Because this happened:
Oh dear, a houseplant calamity.
How did this happen, you ask?
It wasn’t a houseplant murder/suicide, if that’s what you were thinking.
It was a kitten chasing a moth.
This kitten in particular:
Kitten, you say?
Not really anymore. He’s a little more than a year old by now, I adopted him from the shelter last October after Lou died. His name is Reggie. And he’s very funny.
Here he is thrilled (and exhausted) to be totally filthy dirty:
And here he is hanging out upside down in a basket that’s on a slanted shelf:
Because that’s not weird or anything.
Note: The houseplants will be fine despite their crash to the ground. Physically, anyway. Emotionally they may be shattered, but there’s not a lot I can do about that.
In other news, THE EXPERTS RETURN TOMORROW!!!!! That’s right, after a long hiatus, we’ll have an all-new Ask the Experts Panel for you tomorrow. We’ll also have a new plant puzzler, as well as the answer to the last puzzler. Which, in case it’s been so long you forgot, was the one in which I asked if this plant was real or fake:
If you’d like to guess, go for it. You still have time. Leave your best guess in the comments section. I’ll reveal the answer and the winners tomorrow after the panel. Imaginary prizes will be awarded to all who play. Good luck!
