Project 313 – Post No. 287

There was a time when I had a lot of houseplants. Over the years (starting when we moved to Colorado) I gradually weaned down to just a few. The primary reason was gnats. Many plants I had lived part of the year outside and the process of bringing them in involved a lot of spraying and treatment to minimize (not eliminate) having gnats in the house. 

No matter how diligent I was, I always missed at least two and from there, they reproduced like humans, infesting the environment with their annoying ways. But, THIS was a year-round indoor plant. 

And now, the photo:

See, I know I used this one before . . . with a different treatment. That settles it; I’ll have to do start something new . . . or old, like going back to the classic cars macros. No; something different. Flowers, perhaps. We’ll see on the next post. 

As for the cartoon . . . 

. . . I don’t know; I think “Deploy Grappling Hooks!” might also rank up there in the words you least want to hear. 

I did a search back through the known history of art and I found . . . Cave Wall Depiction of First Phoenix Swan.

And . . . that’s it

Some of these posts will likely be longer as the mood hits me, but most will be thus; short, uninteresting, bland, and relentless.

    I used to have a million housepants….ha…I mean housepLants and when we moved last, I gave most of them away and only brought 4 with me. That’s enough for me to try to keep alive these days.
    HUGS!!! :-)

      • It seemed like a million…we lived in the largest house then that we’ve ever lived in…we had 10 rooms (several of them very large room) and every room had at least 3 or more plants in them. I loved it! But ’twas a lot of work. :-)
        Then in the foyer by the HUGE wooden double-door front door was a huge indoor planter filled with all kinds of little plants and flowering plants!

          Sounds as if it was a burden of love.

          We had a Christmas tree in a planter (a Norfolk Island Pine). It eventually got pretty big (taller than me is not saying much, but it was) but we found a home for it and all the plants when we moved.
