I’ve never had much of a green thumb, even though I do enjoy plants and flowers as much as the next girl. For now I content myself with two bonsai trees. We have a juniper named Bon Bon and a birchwood named Woody. A few weeks ago I discovered a friend of mine names her plants too. I wonder if it’s more common among those who don’t actually own pets.
In any case, naming them does wonders for keeping them alive. I used to have an anonymous orchid and when it bit the dust I just thought, “What a stupid plant.” Never mind that I’m pretty sure I only watered it twice. But Woody and Bon Bon – I’d never say such things about them. We make sure to feed them regularly and they’re growing up big and strong.
