Fam Pics – Potted


At the risk of breaking the record for being the last one to post the monthly themed picture at PMN, I am posting my contribution. Although it is nothing original – a plant in a pot, it is near and dear to my heart for the main reason that it’s a yard sale find. Yes, a plant in a really nice pot with humble beginnings. It was there on the driveway of one lady’s home who has holding a yard sale, looking all pathetic and pitiful. It looked like there was no hope for this plant that I even asked the lady: “do you think this plant’s going to survive?” To which she replied: “it’s a hardy plant. it’s hard to kill and all it needs is water”. I looked at the plant again and was reminded of Audrey, the plant in Little Shop of Horrors. “Feed me” it seemed to say. The lady said: “I’ll take a dollar for that”. The pot itself looked really nice and would have been worth more than $1.00 so I bought it.

It’s been almost 3 months now and as you can see the plant has thrived. I poured all the water I can get. (My Mom said it’s a water plant) And slowly and surely, here it is.

Moral of the story: Take a chance on otherwise seemingly hopeless things. Everything and anything thrives on good old TLC.

  6. i love ivy plants. they are so easy to grow and it look pretty in the house. my daughter loves ivy plant and gives it a name. the last plant she bought which she took to her dorm was named frank…hehehe. i said, why a guy’s name? she just chuckled.

    for one dollar, that is a good buy.

  7. Hi Mary. I’m glad that the plant is now thriving judging from it’s shiny leaves. I have some of those too.

    I like the moral of the lesson you mentioned. In this life, where disappointments and worries are plenty, a spark of hope can make a real difference.
