I'm quite late to this party, but here I am, finally. I can combine two loves of mine: photography and plants, yehh! Over the years I learnt to not be afraid of my green friends as that I'm even able to not kill all of them. I need to stay alert, loving them, even when they are not at their top and waiting for better times. Of course my grey thumb sometimes gets the best again, but I'm learning.
