a new friend.

Readers, say hello to George, a succulent who won my heart at IKEA yesterday afternoon. Unfortunately IKEA didn't feel it necessary to share what type of plant George is or allow him water and sunlight during his shelf-stay. After a little research, I've determined that he is from the Echeveria family. (Yes, I researched my 99 cent plant. Nerd alert.)

George, say hello to my readers, who have won my heart many times over. (George waves a leaf in your direction.)

Is it silly that a little 3" plant can bring me so much joy? Perhaps. But, hey...it's the little things.

  1. Hello George. I've never thought to name my plants even though I love everyone of them even those 99 cent guys.

  3. Welcome, George! I wish you and Bethany many years of happiness together...

    A plant is a great idea. I think I'm going to go buy some for my library this week!

  6. George is pretty cool, I can totally understand why he makes you happy! My poor succulents at home are on struggle street but I think it's because we've had zero sunshine lately, like me they need sun!

  8. Hi George! It's totally normal to research your plant -- how else would you properly care for him.

    p.s. I'm glad I'm not the only person who names plants.

    Thanks for stopping by Perfectly Pleasant!

  16. Succulents bring me joy, as they are the only plant that can grow and thrive in my dark apartment.

  17. I now realize that I need to start naming inanimate objects. Nothing in my house has a name...my car doesn't even have a name. Sad.

Every time you comment, a unicorn gets his wings. Also, my phone beeps and your words bring me joy. :)
