I recently got some new house guests. A friend is planning a move from the east coast to the west coast and needed to find a new home for his plants that would not be making the cross country trip.

As is turns out... he as been maintaining a veritable forest in his apartment. So last Sunday, he came over with a minivan full of plants. Big plants, little plants, cacti, vines, giant aloe plants.... it was madness.

So I got four new plants that I have been tending for the last 8 days with friendly green thumbed hospitality.

They seem to be enjoying their eco friendly environment and are adding a nice splash of color to the second floor kitchen niche.
