February Foliage

February has always been my least favorite month, and I just can’t wait for spring, so we got some little plants to make the house a bit cuter.

On the right we’ve got our Christmas Cactus, and on the left we’ve got our “foliage”, which was the only name they had at the store where I bought them (ok. So the plants were on sale at Rite-Aid for like a dollar, gimme a break.) But they were all labeled “foliage”,  so a prize to whoever tells me what they really are. Anyhow, I think they brighten up the living room alot.

The plant on the left is nice and hearty looking. I don’t think I will accidentally kill this one.

I got these little plantlings from a lady at work:

She has this gigantic plant at work and sometimes when she moves it to water it these little things break off and she gives them to me, so I’m trying to give them some roots so I can plant them. They’re kind of pink and green. Would have matched the wedding, actually..

So there is my February Foliage!

  1. I am impressed with your action to make february more green! I always like february because it seems that after months of going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark – I get a few mintues of light when I get off work!! I think I like your idea of having some plants though. Hmmm… I just might be inspired, but I tend to kill all plants but roses!

    However, I like yours – expecially that cactus.

  2. Yes, you can have some of my chicks, they are actually from Mom who broke off some of hers…we planted a lot of her leftovers this fall, but I can’t wait for spring to know what I have here and make more of a note of what we still need. This yard could hold SO much, and it costs SO much to get plants! Maybe I need to get someo f those dollar plants.

  3. I asked my mama what species of foliage you have on your hands. Her idea was that the pink/green one is a Coleus…I’m not sure if it is after I googled it, but maybe its a variety. No idea what the one on the left is. Maybe we’ll have to see if/when it blooms. 🙂

  4. Thanks, Charissa. You in the “prize” 🙂 I don’t know what the prize is yet, but I’ll think of something. 🙂
