A ficus benjamina I finally found the right place for (note: NO direct sun), a cactus who loves the direct sun, a yucca cane (ditto) and a purplish pink phalaenopsis orchid. Best thing I can tell you about the orchid is stick it in the dark and forget about it for a month after it's done blooming. A month at least.

Yay!! Orchids are so cool and easier to grow than one thinks.

I'm growing despondent because i can't tell anybody what the best thing I got for Christmas anymore.

I also grow an acacia vine inside, from a clipping that my husband got from his grandfather before he died. It blooms with these funky little flowers every year that look plastic. the leaves stays healthy and green-looking, even if you forget to water it for a month. then it lets you know by shrivelling a little, but it bounces right back. Very very easy to propagate - just stick it in water and it will grow roots. It'll be very happy for years just sitting in the water, too. Very easy-going plant.

... i grow old … i grow old …
i shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.

shall i part my hair behind? do i dare to eat a peach?
i shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.
i have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.

i do not think that they will sing to me.

i have seen them riding seaward on the waves
combing the white hair of the waves blown back
when the wind blows the water white and black.

we have lingered in the chambers of the sea
by sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
till human voices wake us, and we drown.

perhaps one just shouldn't grow old to start with, unless you have a good set of tools.

We already know. A new barely used flute you're using to forget the ex-flute. You go, girl!
