I suppose it's my desire to mother that makes me happy to have something to take care of. Tater Tot always makes his needs understood, and so it is easiest to take care of him. I had some struggle with outdoor flowers last year, including herbs. This
year, we are successfully keeping two succulents, one tomato plant, and an elephant
ear plant alive. There's something about the growing greenery that excites me. New stalks spring up out of the water mixed with earth and before long everything is more full. Obviously it doesn't take much to keep these babies happy, but they certainly brighten up our little home.
