It’s hard to water the fern on the porch, because it is so bushy that all the water pours over. The cactuses on kitchen’s window sill I have knocked over several times, but some of them are still alive. For Mother’s Day present she wished an Epipremnum aureum. The rays of the evening sun touch the flowers in the living room and create shadows which are the most peaceful view in the whole house. In August I changed all the soil for the plants.
