I am Jade. I was rescued from the store a couple months ago by my dear Caretaker.
Caretaker is sad today…Lily has passed. Her last few flowers browned before they even bloomed. I have never seen Caretaker so sad about a plant. She feels like it’s her fault that Lily is gone already, but what she doesn’t realize is, they don’t last long. Not like me. She is a good caretaker to us all, and I appreciate that.
It’s starting to get a little lonely on my cabinet, with Lily gone now, and the two Kalenchoes going into dormancy for the summer. All that is left is me, Rose, and Pink Polka Dot plant, and of course, the family of Ivy’s that has their own spot on top of the bookshelf.
Dear Caretaker…don’t be sad. You have a kind heart and we your plants, know that you love us all and take care of us the best you can. I promise you, I will be around for a long time. I like it here, and though you don’t fuss over me as much as the flowers, I am less maintenance than they are.
