This week, I have been busy buying plants! Is this a sign of stress? Very likely, since I have trips to plan, photoshoots to do, and endless photo editing. I guess I had spent too much time buying plants and taking care of them, therefore I literally couldn't find time to blog and document the new plants that I purchased.
Dear all other plant lovers, are you going to nurseries multiple times a week to figure out when are they going to have a new shipment comes in? Since Lowe's is close to where I live, I gave myself excuses to show up frequently and pretended like I had things that I needed to get. Mostly I just wanted to check to see if they have new plants. Today at lunch, I didn't have an appetite to eat and decided I would get smoothies at Whole Foods. Shorter lunch hour means I had more time to visit nurseries. However, Friday traffic is horrific in Austin, and I didn't want to drive down to The Great Outdoors, Tillery Street Plant Co., or Shoal Creek nursery. Lowe's seemed to be a proper choice for my lunchtime explore.
There were quite a few plants I liked to get, but I am nervous about buying at big box stores. Sometimes I saw signs of pest infestation when I shopped there, and I would rather be careful than feeling sorry later. This week when shopping at Lowe's, plants that I was interested in were, mini ZZ plant, Sansevieria Samurai, variegated Lucky Bamboo, Peperomia Beetle, and Hoya Chelsea. After checking on them carefully for bugs, I ended up came home with Peperomia Beetle and Hoya Carnosa Chelsea! What did you buy this week?
