While I was at school waiting for my students to finish P.E. today, I happened to read my friend Laura's blog. I was writing a comment about how we should get together soon (you know, the typical comment) and I was about to hit publish when my phone vibrated. Who was texting me, you ask? It was Laura!!! Surprise!
She wanted to know if I wanted to go get some succulents and cactuses/cacti/whatever and re-pot them to make them really cute! I didn't understand half of what she was talking about, but I know succulents are pretty and trendy and for all the right reasons, so I said yes. (The teachers at my school call me the "Leader of Whatever" because I'll do anything... and I don't see myself proving them wrong any time soon.)
Anyway, we went to the home depot, found the plants and pots and dirt... I mean it took a little bit. It took me dropping a cactus, and us debating if there was a smaller bag of potting soil, and trying to talk to an employee but getting blown off, and also me getting distracted by setting my plants up just right and running into a display with the cart... but we got the plants.
And then we potted them, and I really love them! I hope they stay alive. I've never had a plant of my own before. How do you take care of them? I would hug them, but they're kind of spiky and I got a sliver in my finger.
Do you guys know anything about plants? Give me some pointers!
