Moving Plants From the House to the Greenhouse
Posted by Sharkey
As you may know, Martha loves to surround herself with plants and part of her decorating finesse is to adorn the interior of the house with potted plants that grow in the greenhouse. Yesterday was plant moving day and, as usual, I like to supervise.
1 You may wonder why I'm perched here in the back of the Kawasaki with these amazing jade plants.
2 It's because today, I'm supervising the removal of plants from inside the house. On weekends, when Martha entertains, she likes to fill the rooms with many gorgeous plants from the greenhouse.
3 Wilmer, please be careful with that black bat plant. Martha recently acquired it and it's loaded with unusual flowers.
4 Black bat plant, Tacca chantrieri, is native to Malaysia, India, and East Asia and the flowers resemble a bat in flight.
5 I wonder what will be coming out next?
6 It's a pair of lovely topiaries. Martha is very proud of her topiaries, which get carefully hand-pruned to retain their shape.
7 Guys! I don't know how many more plants will fit back here. Maybe we should call this a load.
8 Let's drive these plants to the greenhouse. Good thing it's not too cold today. Tropical plants can't tolerate freezing temperatures, even for short spells.
9 Ryan, back right up to the door for easier unloading.
10 I don't need to tell you to be careful with that black bat plant, but I'll do so, anyway, just to sound important and mildly annoying.
11 Ryan, the greenhouse is so organized and you take such good care of all the plants. They've never looked more beautiful!
