My job anniversary was the other day and we usually don't get gifts. This time, a few of my coworkers got me a very thoughtful gift. They bought me this little Jade plant. They chose it because it doesn't require a lot of care and water and they thought it would be perfect for the farm since we wouldn't be there daily to water it. Plus they can be pinched off and started in other pots so it's an easy way to get 'more plants' later on.
So I brought it home, looked through our milk glass collection and found just the right one for it. It fit just perfectly in this one! The green of the plant looks great against the white of the planter.
Here it is in its new home at the farm. I put it on the back of the desk that's in the foyer, against the wood wall. It fits perfectly as a contrast to the dark wood. When I left, I made sure it was watered and it should be good for another week. A very neat little surprise that got me to thinking, what are some other indoor plants that can maybe be watered once a week or if pushed, once every couple of weeks? I might just have to fill the house with them.
