I tend to forget that my some of my neighbors often haven't been in this house before. It's conspicuouosly a much nicer house than most of the neighborhood houses, and it's kind of embarassing for me to be living here. This (below) is a neighbor's home.But it's a very comfortable house and I really like it. I show people around the house and then offer them a Coke and whatever. Everyone knows how much I like Coke, so it's kind of expected I will offer one, and a snack. This (below) is also a neighbor's home. Notice the Sky Cable dish ($50US a month) on the post.After Socorro (the photo above is NOT Socorro's house) and I visited for a bit, we looked over the plants I am passing on to other gardeners. With me offering, and trying to guess, what appealed to her. We ended up with five potted plants and a bucket of smaller succulents. We made two trips carrying the plants over to her house. She was very excited, and so was her partner/husband/whatever.
now that she is no longer living in the room above Chico's,
her former restaurant and abode.
and lots of plants growing around the house
It's confusing for me, about the plants. In the past, three people I have given a number of plants to here in Chacal to have just let them died. On purpose, apparently, after repeatedly asking me for the plants. I am getting more careful about giving plants away.
And there seems to be a potential for making enemies over the issue who gets plants or whatever. Mostly I offer plants to people who I see are gardening already, and appear to love plants. I think I have given plants to about 22 women. Nothing special, just plants. But almost all my plants are my favorites. Of course, Desert Roses are my true, true favorites right now. And apparently almost everyone else's around here too, at the moment. But they will grow on the beach, so I am trying to keep most of them.
