Finding Unexpected Ways to Showcase Your Green Beauties

A Plant Whisperer is someone who can place their hands on a plant and feel the plant’s energy. Some say the physical structure of the plant appears in their mind, and they can sense the plant’s physical and emotional state and communicate with it.
Me? Well, far be it for me to sense any of that deep stuff; I don’t have that gift. If I place my hands on a plant, it’s to dust the leaves and pick off the brown ones, or maybe stick my finger in the soil to see if it needs watering. And though I cannot pick up on the physical and emotional states of a plant, I know that I feel a deep satisfaction when I repot a plant in a new, beautiful container. I shop my house and garage for an unexpected vessel that will bring new life to a plant.
