She'll open and warm up to you in the winter days and cold nights. Hoping she'll stay, but nothing stays the same; this is what we call Life. Cold and closed in the summer time, her hearts gone dormant. You appreciate her more, for her, and the former her; your life's adornment. Call it how I see it, you'll never be over her. The universe works in mysterious ways, and that as they say, is the story of the #Greenovia.
Unfamiliar to this beautiful succulent? One of my first love's; in terms of getting into the whole succulent world. The Greenovia is a summer dormant succulent that closes itself up during the hotter seasons, into a beautiful green rose shaped spectacle (Picture 2). In the colder seasons, she opens up to once again reveal her true self and to continue her growth in this forever changing world (Picture 1).
Bare en del af gruppen 🙈 Jeg fandt lige en kæmpe agurk i drivhuset. Den havde gemt sig godt bag agurkeplantens store blade.
Vi havde for et par uger siden foræret 2 store squash væk. Og var faktisk lidt spændt på om der kom flere i den størrelse. Det gjorde der 😅..

My mom had a green thumb. I do not. 👎🏻 The only way that I can keep house plants in my home is by replacing them with new ones every 3-6 months. I do have a few artificial plants that my kids keep watering, I probably should tell them that they’re fake. 😂
I added three tropical plants to my collection late in the spring. The late frost nearly killed them all. The leaves shrivelled up overnight and turned every shade of brown. I thought for sure I had killed them. The only part of the plant that showed any sign of life was a few small shoots growing out of the base of the plant.
All I could think of at the time was “what would mom have done in this situation?” I began cutting back all three plants. Every dead branch had to go.
I was really hoping I could revive them. Instead I butchered and nearly killed them. They all looked choppy, and so very sad. I took a step back, placed my hands on my hips and began to laugh out loud at the hack job I had done.
So ... this is why my son stopped letting me cut his hair years ago.
When we arrived home from our family vacation in July I was greeted by three happy, healthy, flourishing plants.
