Elsie Larson of A Beautiful Mess                 In the past I've been a known plant killer, and I'm not going to lie – it was 100% my fault. I can be very forgetful/inattentive and those two qualities don't really mix with plant keeping. But then my grandma taught me to have a set day of the week that's "plant watering day". I actually have two days now (Wednesday and Sunday) due to frequent travel, guests and generally just being a little bit too busy. But hey, it's helping… A LOT. I've only killed a few plants in our new home as opposed to all of them, all the time. 

Haha! OK, one more confession – fake succulents and air plants. You can barely tell the difference, you guys! This is life changing!   

Anyway, visiting nurseries is one of my favorite outings. On this particular day, I bought a cool tropical tree for my bedroom and a really good prickly pear cactus. Plants are definitely my favorite collection. I have so many, but I ALWAYS have room for one more.

It has been much better since I started working from home this past year. I've slowly started to grow my plant collection that I started with just one that I attempted to keep alive for three months. I let myself buy more after I proved (to myself) that I could keep that one guy alive. Now I've graduated to a small herb "garden" (it's really a big pot) in my kitchen and SIX other potted plants around the house. So far, no deaths. But… we'll see.

Maybe we should go plant shopping next time I visit Nashville, sis. I can always drive my new babies back home with me when I leave. 🙂 xx. Emma
