The Anniversary Issue
I missed the April anniversary story. The plan never worked. I was going to write it early, then on time, then a little later.
So here it is.
Started in April 2012, I have eight years done and moving into the ninth year. Check other blogs, most can’t do that. So, I have longevity.
For me, it is incredibly difficult to find a topic, write with focus, type, and publish.
My blog is about plants, but I can’t help but lean into philosophy. I reject hundreds of ‘points of view’ in my head because --- who cares what I think.
I have plant people ask for more information about ‘plant culture’. I find that very boring and difficult because everyone’s environment is different. Maybe someday.
Anniversaries are for reflecting --- Past and future.
I’ve had phases of Streptocarpus, Sinningias, and Primulina. Then Strings of Things. We constantly chase the hot new plant --- It’s where the money is.
The future is the most interesting. Sinningias need to come back. Garden Centers are begging for them. String of Hearts ‘Pretty Pink’ will be a gold mine if supply can be created.
Who knows what new ‘hot’ plant will pop up? By definition, there will be a shortage.
Peperomias are hiding in the weeds. There are hundreds of species and they ‘live’ as houseplants --- always a good value. And we’ve barely touched Begonias --- one of the old original houseplants.
Some of my blog stories strike me as very good. Some --- who cares? But you don’t know which is which, before you write.
Seth Godin, genius blogger, knows --- Good ideas come from bad ideas.
