In the northern climes we have a special affection for subtropical plants. We build houses they can live in when the actual outdoor temperatures would never allow it.
To simulate their environment I treat my plants to a steamy bathtub rising mist. Gazing at their bright colors I feel magically transported. I talk to them. We relate. I am grateful that for the time being there is a mutual agreement of a shared life. We give each other dreams of the sea.
Happy Valentine's Day
