Busy at work, busy at home. Most of us have a 24/7 life and honestly forget to stop and enjoy the small things. That would be me. Sometimes you have to enjoy the small things, but in order to be able to do that, we have to literally put something in front our faces.
For me, it’s Betsy the plant. Yes, I have named a plant and am fully aware it seems weird. When we first got Betsy a year and a half ago, I just looked at the plant and said it was Betsy. My husband was like, “I’m not going to call the plant a name.” Well guess what, he does.
I love gerber daisies, I had one in my hair for prom and it was the main flower for my wedding. However, I do not have a green thumb at all what-so-ever, so I haven’t had them in a yard or any plants…until now.
She (yes, sure, she), started as a small red gerber daisy but after about six months the flower part went away and it was just a plant. Very pretty, but no flower. My husband kept up with the plant as I often forget or use the wrong kind of water to water it. So he gets all credit for Betsy, not me.
Then a couple weeks ago, literally all in a week, a red gerber daisy sprouted up! And now it’s been two or three weeks and here we are!
Betsy isn’t life changing. Betsy doesn’t require a ton of maintenance. Betsy isn’t the biggest deal in the world. But… she sure is nice. And I really enjoy having her around. It’s nice if I’m just sitting watching TV to look over to see a really pretty plant. Or just to walk over to look out the window and there she is.
I highly find you recommend a Betsy. It’s the small things, sometimes.
