The week is just flying by...
Over the weekend we did a TON
of yard work in the backyard.
I woke up on Tuesday
with a mild case of Poison Oak.
I know it was Poison Oak
and NOT Poison Ivy
because I always break out
in small little bumps with Poison Oak
and a terrible blistering rash with Poison Ivy.
So far it isn't bothering me too much,
so thank goodness for that,
because I like being outside working in the yard.
I always seem to have better luck
with the plants Outdoors
than I do with the ones
I have Indoors!
I recently bought two ivy plants
(thank goodness not the poison kind)
for the Living room and Dining Room.
I love real flowers and plants in my home.
Ivy is relatively easy to keep alive.
I just have to remember to water it...
I had a beautiful ivy plant last year
in the kitchen that I had kept alive
for quite a while.
I went out of town and asked the kids
to water the plants...
I came home and it was
as dead as a doornail.
I asked them why they didn't water it...
They said that it looked so real
that it must have been FAKE!
I can't win!
I am hoping to have better luck
with them this year.
Yes, the kids AND the plants!
So, here is my question
for all of you out there reading this...
I buy an orchid every year
and they are always so pretty
and the flowers last a long time.
I had read that putting 2-3 ice cubes,
like in the photo,
each week is the best way to water them.
After doing some Google research
it turns out that may not be the case.
Do you have any advice for me?
I always seem to end up throwing
them away after a time...
I just figured that I am terrible
at taking care of plants...
Good thing I ordered this ^^^
when it came around on
Decor Steals last month!
Let me know in the comments
what your experience has been
with the "Ice" method...
