Moving Day

Succulent window

As I am fond of saying, we only have two seasons here in Connecticut, winter and July.

House plants

As you can see, most of my windows are obscured most of the time by plants. Twice a year, I have the great plant migration where almost everything goes outside in the spring–and then it returns to the windows around Labor Day.

Because “July “–aka house plant suitable temperature–came a little early this year, this weekend was the great migration.

Lake view–sans plants anyway

And because I need to take a 3 week road trip in June, I need to move more of these plants than usual so that the Spoiler can attempt to care for them. It’s going to be interesting.

Second lake view

At least he might have a fighting chance if I can get these grouped by watering preference. We’ll see. Fingers crossed.

    In our region, we get summer and a few days of rain, which is small drops of water that fall mysteriously from the sky, . . . and perhaps, on rare occasion, a mysterious phenomenon known as ‘frost’. You might want to google that if you do not know what it is. A few plants that I brought from Southern California live as houseplants to avoid the bit of chill that sometimes happens. I put them outside when they express symptoms of dissatisfaction with their otherwise domestic lifestyles. So many of your houseplants would not want to be inside here.

    So many of my house plants do not want to live inside my home either but they would rather be there than out in the cold and snow, of course!! My husband always says that I was born in the wrong climate–to which I heartily agree–but will he move to accommodate me and my plants? Don’t be silly!
