Aren’t they the weirdest things?
I mean, no soil or water? Well, they actually do need water, and where I live, it’s very dry so they need more water than normal, which means they don’t necessarily last too long. 🙁
I used to think they were strange, stupid little things and I don’t know when or where my attraction for them jumped the tracks, but now I dig ’em.
I was in Florida last year and much to my surprise, they were growing on my friend’s tree! I mean, something like $50 worth of air plants just hanging out doing nothing! My friend thought I was nuts, but I put the biggest one of those little suckers I could squeeze into a Rubbermaid container and took it home on the plane with me to Idaho.
I’m sure you’ve seen the very hip and elegant glass, ceramic, and concrete containers you can purchase to house your air plants in. I adore those.
I don’t have them.
I have dinosaurs.
I spent $2 per dinosaur at the toy store and I have to tell ya, it was as if they knew something was going to happen to them . . .
I then spray painted the dinosaurs gold. I mean, if I don’t go hip and elegant, I can go glitzy and silly, right?
These make me laugh a little every time I look at them, marching across my window sill. Aren’t they fun? I’m sure they would be fun in a kid’s room, but since there aren’t any kids in my house, they’re satisfying the kid in me!
