First Glance Did Not Notice Spots
One of the things that can happen with age is a change in vision. I don’t typically wear corrected lenses when working in studio. Wasn’t until I looked at the plant through the camera did I see the spots.

Pleiospilos

Looking more, saw what appears to be an inverted V with a Y.

A package of plants arrived from a plant/artist friend.

This is the way the plant looked when I unwrapped it Saturday afternoon.

Freesia and Dianthus

Bunny, Mushroom, Freesia, and Dianthus

Freesia has a lovely fragrance. The dianthus does not produce a fragrance similar to cloves. Its fragrance is typical carnation.

Succulent Bud

Senecio Bud

The Senecio was a cutting from my first Senecio plant. The plant roots where it lands. It does produce a fragrance similar to cloves.

I like that the plant fills empty spaces.

A Nice Surprise

Monday, March 16th, 2020

Tucked away on the back of a shelf in the greenhouse was this dead plant. I just couldn’t bear to toss in the recycle bin. Kept thinking one day I might slice it open and just maybe, use it in a piece.

Dead Plant

Today I found a plantlet rooted in a wee bit of soil at the base of the saucer.
