Pet Plants Nostalgia

Pet plants nostalgia is a real thing, Y'all!  Today, I thought I'd share some of my plants throughout the years.  I've had so many and it's so much fun to look back.

Plants are special.  They become part of the family or maybe they remind you of an era of your life that is long gone but never forgotten.

Like the ones in the first picture above.  Those two little plant cuties lived on my windowsill during my time at Pinellas Village, a single parent community.  Five years of my life there in my little second-story apartment and so many feels!

That was a time in my life when I was really, truly all alone, but ended up making some close friends who were in similar situations.  We've all moved on since then but we got each other through a tough time.

Pretty Little Succulents

These are my pretty little succulents all in a row.  That's how I bought them.  I would keep them on the kitchen windowsill in my old apartment.  They made such a cute addition!

Some of my pictures were so small from my old point and shoot camera that I had placed them on backgrounds to upload them in a way to fit the post.  I kind of like the patterns with my plants!

Houseplants and Colorful Pottery

I swear a lot of the plants I'm going to show are from when I lived in Pinellas Village.  My mom was always trying to cheer me up back then and add a lot of color to my life.

Plants definitely accomplish that!  Also, you can read about how I had my first experience with the fairy realm in this post.

Pink and Yellow Moon Cactus

My brother is a boy nature lover and back in the day, he found me a multitude of pink and yellow moon cactus.  I love using these for mini zen gardens and terrariums.

Aren't they cute?  I used to sell them with mini zen gardens, but now I think I'm going to put together a DIY zen garden post instead.

Baby Succulents

We got this baby succulent last summer and unfortunately, it only lasted until fall closed in on us.  I have to get better at taking care of succulents.

I'm surprised I didn't do better with her, but I definitely gave it my best shot.  I followed the care instructions and tried to keep her out of direct sunlight, except for photo shoots of course!

I'm making it a hashtag goal to be a better succulent caretaker so I can add them to the store.  What are your plant goals this summer?

Begonias the Indie Sweetheart

We bought this begonia last summer too and she lasted quite a while.  She lasted almost a year.  We did all the right things.

I have an obsessive-compulsive plant disorder, meaning I am very diligent about their care.  Sometimes, no matter how much you try, one or two doesn't make it :(

Begonias are like the indie sweetheart of plants and flowers.  They just have something very ephemeral about them that I can't quite put my finger on.  Plus, they are super pretty!

Aloe Vera Plants Forever

Aloe vera plants will always hold a special place in my heart.  They are my plant babies.  Almost every aloe vera plant I have is the offspring of my giant aloe vera plant named Matilda.

They are so sweet, loving, and make a great friend for emotional support and healing.  We've got bonds, baby!

Thanks for taking a stroll with me down pet plant memory lane.  I ran into some old pictures and couldn't resist writing up this post.  Pet Plants are like the friendship bracelet of the plant world.

You'll be able to adopt one soon!  They come with a name, personality, and adoption papers to boot.

Pin me!  Pin this picture to one of your Pinterest boards if you enjoyed this read.  In the meantime, follow me here.
