Beautiful, what a lovely greeting to come home to. I love these, they seem to thrive on neglect (good job really with me lol) The best one I've ever seen used to sit on a coffee table in the staffroom. It was 'watered' reqularly with cold tea...sometimes with milk and sugar!

13 Nov, 2012

 

Thanks Waddy,but lovely as it was,I would have preferred to still be on holiday! Lol...I seem to remember my former neighbour's thrived on neglect too..and a lot use tea to water plants,but not heard of milk and sugar as well ! :o)

13 Nov, 2012

 

What a fantastic colour Sandra! ... and so many blooms on it ... obviously likes the toiletries you use ... :o)))

14 Nov, 2012

 

Thanks Shirley..and it could well be the toiletries..Aloe Vera,mainly.. ..is this what they mean about companion plants ? Lol.. :o)

14 Nov, 2012

 

LOL Sandra! ........
