Share Your World – September 4, 2017

old plants

Participating in this week’s SYW prompt πŸ˜ƒ It’s already Tuesday here in Indonesia but this is when I get to see the questions, so … and technically it should still be Monday evening in some parts of the world anyways 😁

So here we go:

What colour do you feel most comfortable wearing?

Right now in my pregnant state almost all pieces are black. There’s one blue, one gray, one white and one silver – because they did not come in black and I really needed them. A dress for special occasions is green, but this was lent to me by my cousin.

The moment I learned I was pregnant I right away chose black to be my colour because I didn’t want to invest in a lot of pregnancy clothes. Nobody can truly be sure that today I’m wearing the same top that I wore last Saturday. And that’s my point!Β πŸ˜†Β πŸ˜† Black also does a fine job hiding the flab and making me look pulled together somehowΒ πŸ‘

What is your favourite type of dog?

One that can take care of itself πŸ™„

List at least five favourite flowers or plants?

I can’t! I don’t know their names πŸ˜† Besides, I love all plants as long as they’re healthy, happily blooming and have no desire to take over my house with their roots and unwieldy leaves. Flowering plants are the best, but they’re also high maintenance in my experience.

This is a very timely question because lately I have become interested in buying (and caring for) potted plants.Β  The picture at the top of this post was taken when my plants first came home. I don’t have a green thumb, so by now of course, a few have already given up all hope of survival and still a few are struggling to make sense of their situation πŸ˜†

These 3 beauties I just bought last Saturday after my doctor’s appointment:

I hope they bloom instead of giving up on me right away πŸ˜† The 3rd one on the right is my favorite – it seems to be a very resilient plant and I usually see them at resorts, al fresco restos, hotels and golf courses in various lovely colors:

What inspired you this past week?

These plants I just featured. It’s always exciting to be at the start of a new hobby πŸ™‚

  1. Hey, you sound just like me! lol I also don’t have a green thumb. I have managed in the past to keep aloe vera alive and thriving, though. I currently don’t have any plants inside and…well, the ones outside are kindasorta dying. Oops?

    1. LOL! 🀣 Well at least your aloe vera is thriving. Mine is kinda turning brownish at the tip of the leaves. So I hastily googled it because, this is an aloe vera for goodness sakes, shouldn’t be too hard, right? 🀣 I learned they also do not like to be under intense sunlight (I thought otherwise). I still have SO much to learn 🀣

  2. I’ve been wearing a lot of dark colors, too–mostly because they wash best! I miss pinks and light blues and festive hues. When I end up back with my wardrobe, I may never wear these clothes again!!!!!

    1. They do indeed! πŸ˜€ I used to have a very colorful wardrobe, I loved every piece except that dressing up/putting together outfits always took time. Now with mostly blacks and a few neutrals, dressing up is almost mindless πŸ˜† Each piece knows how to play nice with the other. And, what I appreciate the most, I just don’t need half as many pieces as I used to 😊

      Now let’s see if I’ll still feel this way after I give birth πŸ˜†

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts ❀️

  3. Bougainvillea is the flowering plant, it likes lots of sun. But will need watering daily. You may want a bigger pot and a trellis to train it to. It is a woody vine, that gets 20 ft or more, but can be kept much smaller with regular trimming. The other two like shade or indoors.
