Last weekend I became the proud owner if my very first flower: an orchid from Trader Joes. It adds the perfect touch of color to my apartment! For me, owning a plant is a huge accomplishment; I’m not exactly known for having a green thumb. The last plant I owned was a cactus. You know those plants that grow in the desert and survive off a teaspoon of water every year (or something like that). Despite their heartiness, I somehow managed to kill it. In my defense, I swear it wasn’t my fault; it grew this odd white fungus and slowly died.
I promised myself that this plant would last longer than the cactus (fingers crossed). In the mean time, enjoy some pictures!
