Moving, With Plants

Trying to move is difficult when you’ve got a lot of houseplants you’re unwilling to sacrifice.

This was my car for part one of the journey:


There was hardly any room for anything else. On the bright side, the Cuban oregano made my car smell positively delightful.

And I have intentions of growing more houseplants. I have seeds for moonflower and sensitive plants. So, I can only imagine how difficult it’s going to be when I move again in the future. I tend to accumulate plants like a hoarder. My future house probably won’t even have walls. It’ll just be hedgerows or flimsy brick with vines growing up the side. Probably.

Part two of the journey might be a little less packed. I’m going to have help from my family, so I think I’ll be able to divide up my plants in several cars.

Despite being a huge pain to move, I’m happy I’m keeping all my plants. To me, nothing sets a homey mood faster in a new place like a houseplant. Quite literally, they immediately bring life to a new home. So, even though dirt spilled all over my car when that jerk in the pickup truck swerved in front of me on the highway, and after I had to slam my breaks on, sending the scented geranium and my aloe tumbling, I think it will be worth it once I get my plants to their new home. And even though I had to pack several extra boxers for the movers, because my car was quite literally full of plants, and I barely had room to shove my suitcase in the back seat, I think it will be worth it. Having a house that is full of life is always going to be worth it for me.

  1. Those are adorable. You have an amazing dedication in doing these. My mother love plants as well, but the amount of work required is too much for me. He he. Great post, by the way.

    Please try to follow my blog page if you don’t mind. Thanks! 👏😊


    1. Thank you! I don’t know what my life would be without plants. I bet your mom and I would get along swimmingly.


      1. Yes. She particularly liked roses. You?


      2. I LOVE roses. Unfortunately, I am not very good at getting them to grow.


      3. It depends on the climate, right?


      4. Probably. When I tried to grow them I was living very far north. I also had pretty bad soil. I think they’re a bit more finicky than I’m used to when I grow plants


      5. That’s too bad. What do you normally plant?


      6. Typically, veggies and herbs. And flowers I find interesting. I’ve got a rose geranium in a pot right now that I really like. I’m also a big fan of succulents


      7. Wow. That’s impressive. Are you also posting some of the plants?


      8. I plan to post descriptions and facts about plants. Particularly medicinal plants, since that’s an interest I have. I can also do houseplants if people are interested, but I don’t know as much about those


      9. Nice. That would be really helpful and educational. You should do it.
