I had a lovely day shopping with my daughter Miranda the other day, not at the mall as you'd expect. We went to the garden centre where she picked out some plants for her bedroom and the pots to match. She knew exactly what she wanted - the ferns were her favourites - and guided by me we found a lovely maidenhair fern, a trailing plant (Cissus) for her macrame hanger (remember those!) and some Baby's tears. Next we repotted the Kentia palm she had previously been given into a beautiful new pot. The plants looked so good it inspired her to completely clean out her room, miracle! But I was already elated by the fact she was discovering a passion for plants. Long may it continue.
