Every once and a while, we like to give the houseplants a proper bath. They get that inside dust/cobwebby accumulation over time, and they need a nice shower to clean up. It was fairly cool today, so we lined them up on the porch for their bath time. I like to separate them into sections for most water to least water, so they stay happy.
To give them a bath, you just need a hose and sprayer. Set it to the gentle garden rain setting.
Wet plants have the best colors. After you get them sufficiently watered/clean, let them soak up some rays and dry off in the air a bit. Fresh air is good for everyone. Then bring them back inside, and enjoy your nice, clean plants.
To maintain our healthy lifestyle, we try to live by a couple rules. Eat lots of veggies. Get lots of fresh air. Drink lots of water. Sometimes we are lucky enough to cross a couple of these off our list early in the morning, so we have the rest of the day to watch movies inside eating popcorn.
This was one of those lucky days. A plan to hike along Bull Creek. Our goal was to 1. survive the sun, and 2. find water in the creek.
Our perseverance and optimism was rewarded by the flowing creek water. The fish were swimming with happiness.
The rain we had during spring was clearly appreciated here.
Water isn’t only important for plants, but also humans. This hike was generously sponsored by our reusable water bottle. Taking our inspiration from the creek, we filled the bottle with ice and water from our house, and enjoyed refreshing sips while sweating in the sun.
