SMALL BEGINNINGS

Leave a comment

PINEToday, I met Stephanie who works for Tanner Medical Center.  She was so nice, and I fell in love with her beautiful plants, the Norfolk Pine and tropical fern.  The Norfolk Pine below is 20 years old.  The photo on the left is a close-up of one of its branches.  If you look closely, you can see the tender new growth proudly sprouting from the top of the tree.

The pictures below are of two smaller pines in her office.  They are both five years old.

This last one is the tropical fern.  Initially, I thought it was plastic because the leaves are so flawless except for two tiny brown spots.

FERNIt’s plain to see that Stephanie takes very good care of her plants.  They came from small beginnings but continue to thrive due to her constant and earnest efforts.  Thanks again, Stephanie, for showing me around and letting me take pictures.  I look forward to seeing you again and talking with you.

From my heart to yours,

Maxine 🙂
