I am no gardener. I will water the lawn and whatever else happens to be growing on the lawn—trees, bushes, and sometimes flowers. But every now and then, there will come a year when I want to plant something.
I planted three coleus plants this year, in large plant pots, with some other greenery to accompany them. I watered the lot of them religiously, when I thought of them, but it's a good thing we had an unusual amount of rain this year.
Then, today, I brought the three coleus plants inside. I did.
I transpotted them into larger pots, and put them on our only properly-large window, which, unfortunately, faces north. I understand that light from a north window is preferred by artists, etc., but not preferred by plants. So I got them a grow light.
They really are beautiful, despite the fact that the leaves have been chewed here and there by insects which, I hope, didn't accompany them into the house.
The three plants are right here, behind me, as I sit at my computer, where all I have to do is turn around, and there they are.
So, without further ado or, in my case, without further trivial chatter, I would like to introduce my three indoor coleus plants, with less than original nicknames: Blacky, Big White, and Red, after the colours of their pots.
I hope they survive living with me. In the meantime, I'm sharing them with Lady Fi's popular meme, Our World Tuesday.
