This photo was taken on August 7, 2020 at 2:20 PM.
The location was in the kitchen of my home in Beltsville, Maryland.
The "Take it!" came as a follow up to a recent photo placed on the site regarding my trimming corn plants. The follow up comments included a note from one individual who has had difficulty in growing indoor house plants.
The photo featured is that of a "Cast Iron Plant." I kid you not! This was the recommendation of a local nursery when I did my initial shopping for house plants after having made my move from Bethesda to Beltsville, Maryland. I had stated I wanted something that was hearty and could survive my history of not having plants fare that well, with me as their custodian.
The recommendation of this plant was instant - lol. I was told it could hold up well with one watering per week. The other Corn Plants need to be watered twice a week. The frequency of watering must be maintained in order to keep them all happy. So far - so good.
The green plants seem to add life to the interesting and/or cheerful photographs I have on the walls in the house.
The modest plan is someday open a mini gallery in my living room to display: Photographs, Products, and some of my more interesting personal Collectables. I am thinking of having by invitation, showings, and will serve Starbucks Frappuccino's or fruit juices along with cup cakes from a special bakery. The maximum number of guests will be three. That number, plus me as the narrator, I hope will give everyone an interactive hour and one half presentation* on select Sunday afternoons.
Life can offer us an opportunity for a diary entry every day. I appreciate the chance to share some of my views and experiences with each of you.
Wishing you my very best,
*Yes - there will be humor and hopefully lots of laughs included.
