It's Alive

The Eldest had a peace lily in her cubicle where she used to work. She thought briefly about moving it to Pennsylvania, but it most likely wouldn't have survived being packed and the trip.


I named the plant, Lily, and in the 3 weeks that The Eldest has been gone, I haven't killed the plant (yet). I don't have much of a green thumb. The Eldest told me a peace lily is an easy plant to take care of. It doesn't like direct sunlight, doesn't need a lot of water, and will droop when it needs a drink. So far so good.

I felt bad her plant couldn't make the move with her. So, on her second day of orientation, I had a plant delivered to the apartment. The arrangement is called Dreaming in Pink (her favorite color) and has a peace lily as well as a polka dot plant, and pink tea roses. Nan told me the pink flowers are daisy poms and were cut stems that didn't last very long.



Hopefully, The Eldest's lily will last a long time and will bring peace and happiness in her new home.

  6. Having the eldest's peace lily plant is a way to keep her with you in your home. You will have to be extra careful not to overwater it or underwater it because she won't trust you with anything else if you can't manage an easy to care for plant. Hee-hee. Happy almost Sunday. Is it snowing at your house yet? Hugs-Erika
