A POOPIE Party at The Nester's


The Nester is holding a POOPIE (People Opposing Objectionable Pretend plants In the Environment) party. I have to admit, I love my Objectionable Pretend Plants. Because they do not betray my trust. Because they do not turn into dry, crispy, brown stalks. And because I can neglect them all I want to. I don't know why it is that every living plant I have ever tried to grow has wilted and dried out into crispy sticks. I mean, I watered them, you know, probably twice a year. You'd think they would have been grateful enough to have at least tried to make it. But no. So I have long since given up on the live plant route. And now I happily co-exist with my Objectionable Pretend Plants!

To see more POOPIE participants, go see The Nester.

I love all your Pretend Plants, especially the arrangement on the black round table! Fall must be near!
How is the huge orchid plant (the live one) doing? I know you have one, so don't deny us an answer.

Shannon @ Silver Trappings said...

Uuhhh....yeah. I do have one live, very large orchid plant. However, it is not as large as it was when I first got it. Because quite a few of its leaves have become dry and crispy and have fallen off. Because I never water it. Because I am a bad plant caregiver. Which is why I love my Objectionable Pretend Plants.
