This is an aloe Vera plant I brought home from Austin. Son Will grows massive aloe Vera plants, so at Christmas I asked to take a small one home. I have great respect for the medicinal value of its gel and wanted to have my own supply on hand.
He hesitated. He hesitated????
Clearly he didn’t think I could take care of a plant. I’m not a plant person. My thumb is not green and never shall be, but…I try.
Despite my son’s protectiveness this little plant came home in my carry-on bag and has survived quite nicely, thank you.
I frequently send Will pictures like this one to prove it is still alive.
Six inches of snow dumped on us yesterday and overnight. The plow just came. I don’t think anyone expected a storm. We were all focused on Super Bowl food.
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY from the Northeast, where it is still winter and the sun is shining.
