Now I know

I have to confess, at the checkout, where they have all the detergents you need to keep them healthy, I had this thought: should I not better buy artificial ones? Less maintenance and they won’t fail you.
Now I know, from the first day they stayed with me, real ones are in a different league. They smell, they change, they grow, they are season sensitive, they need.
Buying my first plants I felt like somebody buying a photograph for the first time. Not that I have ever bought a photograph, I know people buying them though. You go for the big emotions. The fashionable statements, the cliché’s if you like. The classics.
For plants I now have some roses, a jasmine, blue wisteria and an apple tree. Smelly, spicy, classic.
