Thursdays are the worst day of the week. Okay, so some might say that I have a tendency towards the melodramatic, but I'm pretty sure it's true. It's far enough into the week that you if you're behind on something, it's really too late to catch up, but it's not quite close enough to the weekend to start counting the hours just yet. Think about it, no one sings songs about Thursdays or thinks, I wish it were Thursday already. It doesn't have a fun, colloquial name like hump day, and despite starting with a "T", it doesn't seem to even have an affinity to tacos. Really, the only good thing about Thursdays is Thanksgiving and that's ONCE A YEAR. So in the interest of trying to improve our Thursdays until the next Thanksgiving, I'm starting this new series called Green Thumb Thursdays!
Happy Wednesday everyone! I feel bad for being a little slow about posting in April, so I'm making more of an effort this month. One of the things I've been wanting to share are some of the books that have helped me on my various projects. To keep me better about posting at a regular pace, I thought I'd start one of those alliterative blog series where I periodically share one of my favorite gardening books. I'll start by posting on the first Wednesday of every month until I forget or until you get bored of reading about reading about plants. In the interest of full disclosure, I do have Amazon Associate links on my site, and while I will link things I've bought and used, I commit to only blogging about things I've done, recommend, or care about, not things motivated by those links.
At this point, it may surprise some of you to learn that I occasionally grow things not in water. I know what you're thinking - why would anyone ever bother with messy, "ground" stuff? Well fear not, this post involves no soil whatsoever. Today I have for you the story of Pegasus, my adorable air plant.
