Happy Place

I have been sitting out on my lanai at night more lately. I take a break from the couch and my phone and I just sit out there watching my plants grow. It’s relaxing.

It isn’t all the way quiet because I’m still running my air conditioner. It’s not hot-hot, like it is in the summer, but I don’t get much cross-breeze at my place, so it can be stuffy.

    What is the fuchsia-colored flower? That looks stunning against the green leaves.

      Kristi, I couldn’t remember what the plant was called, but I went searching on the internet. It’s a spathoglottis plicata. Apparently, it’s a common landscape plants in tropical climate zones. I got it on impulse from the Walmart garden center, and I have not regretted it. I love the flowers, and apparently, they’re long-blooming.

    You are indeed your grandpa’s grandson! He use to sit at the edge of the corn field and listen to the corn grow!

    This song came to mind as I read your post about watching your lanai plants growing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u90qRE2F7CM

    [I’ve always appreciated Pete Seeger, and just recently read a book that included the “man from Maine” who wrote the song, too.]

    Happy listening!
