Photo Monday – Happy Plants (Through No Fault of our Own)

The girls love flowers so, last Spring, we planted some on our rooftop.  They are now dead because we keep forgetting to water them.  However, a few other plants seem to have thrived in the hot, dry, sunny conditions up there. The lavender hasn’t given us flowers but it seems happy enough.  The rosemary is growing like a weed.

After a rough July, the basil is growing new leaves.  (Honestly, it flowered and I think that may be what made it look so pitiful.  If we’d had green thumbs, we might have cut the flowers off to protect the leaves.  Or something.)

And this plant.  Left by the old owners.  It’s succulent, right? If you know the name, feel free to share! It was so low to the ground a year ago.  Well, low to the bottom of its pot. It stayed out all Winter and we never gave it a second thought.  And it has grown so much these past few months!

Gotta love a plant we can’t kill… (Pretty sure the others won’t make it through Winter. I mean, should we bring the basil, rosemary, and lavender indoors or just leave them? They could suffer from over watering indoors. There’s a five year old who might want to water them three times a day…)

    Looks like a kalanchoe, soon enough you should have a riot of very bright blossoms. Fun, and, as you said, hard to kill!
