This is Jade, a sweet collection of bulbous leaves and thick stems that has been with me since Nov. 1972.
Yup, she's 48 years old.
Jade was a gift for a store opening I considered an endeavor of dreams. The dreams drifted away but Jade and her companion Snakey lasted. Snakey the snake plant, or as some call her (mother-in-laws-tongue),is five feet tall and shy. She does not photograph well but be assured she is loved.
Yes boys and girls one can love a plant as tenderly as pets.--CarolynnWith2Ns
Blog hiatus update: Still no cooking gas which means I'm doubly excited about ditching my beloved apartment for a week to head over to hang out with Intern Ty. Now I just need to find where I put the laser pen for safekeeping.
PS Cuddles was very glad to see today's post.
