Welcome to Brad's online memory archives.

An Old Favorite

I stopped by Home Depot to look at faucets for my bathroom sink. While I was there, I walked through the garden center because I always walk through the garden center. I wasn’t really looking for anything specific, so I almost walked past it:

When I saw the distinctive round leaves, I almost couldn’t believe it. They were selling pilea peperomioides plants! I had one back in Baltimore, but had to leave it behind when I moved to Maui. My favorite mail-order place sells them, but they’re kind of expensive. At Home Depot, they weren’t. Yay! I got one:

    Serendipity! What a happy surprise! That plant really is quite striking.

    I would imagine that your garden center is lush and green all year long. No pallets of ice melt and various grades of snow blowers, eh?

  2. Debbie

    Oh the fantastic foliage find! I love it when that happens! Just beautiful! It was meant to be!

  3. Debbie Foelber

    I’ve been taking good care of your left behind plant. I have reported and shared several babies! I think they will forever be Brad’s plants.

      Yay! I’m glad to hear the plant is doing well, and that it’s multiplying. The one I bought had two babies growing in the pot as well. 🙂
