During the Spring and Summer you will find me in my garden, in Autumn and Winter sewing and quilting is my hobby, but I still have to have plants and flowers around me. It has been proven that plants clean the air, (wish they could also get rid of the dust bunnies), so I have numerous plants in my house.
In the livingroom there is a beautiful Anthurium with five huge red flowers and more buds are starting to form , a money tree, (I must be doing something wrong with this plant, can't see any money yet) in the dining area, scattered in other rooms there is a pot of geraniums that I am hoping to get cuttings from in the Spring, the ever popular African Violet, an orchid and several other plants whose names I don't know. There is also the bamboo, you know the kind that you buy in the grocery store, so many stems for good luck, some for good health etc. I planted mine in soil, soon the shears will have to come out to trim them, as they are almost touching the ceiling.
Why am I telling you this. Every Saturday I water my plants, however, because I had the day out sewing with quilting friends it didn't get done, yesterday I visited my Mum for the day, so no watering done on Sunday. Last night I had a dream, or in my case it would be classed as a nightmare, which was so real I had to jump out of bed this morning to make sure my plants were still alive. I had dreamt all of my plants had died because I hadn't watered them over the weekend, they all hung limp and brown.
After my breakfast this morning they all received a well deserved drink, tonight I should sleep dream free.
Do you dream, are they so real you have to check in the morning?
Do you have plants in your house?
Have a good Monday,
