HOUSE PLANTS
« on: June 04, 2020, 07:39:36 AM »
I remember being told, years ago, that architects are trying to bring the garden into the house
Over the years I have had several houseplants, some more successful than others. When we moved here I was thrilled to have a windowsill at last where I could have a selection of small cacti.
House plants have come and gone , mostly the type of ' we are going visiting so we have to take a present with us '
One of these was this Bromeliad, I think it came wrapped in fuchsia pink shiny paper which I tore off in a manic fashion , What was the florist thinking? 

Bromeliad
A plant given to me by one of my friends on the occasion of my annual, after Christmas, coffee morning.
I am afraid it succumbed to my care of lack of care and is no more

Bromeliads are mentioned in

Living in Korinthos, Greece.
No garden but two balconies, one facing south and the other north.
Most of my plants are succulents which need little care
