Thought for the Day

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better.
It's not." Dr. Seuss~~The Lorax

The annual repotting of the Aloe...

I gave away a lot of my plants when we moved from Florida to Illinois so on my Mom's first visit here she brought me this tiny little aloe plant probably from Kroger.

Every year I have to separate and repot this 'mother plant' because the base leaves get so heavy it starts to tip the pot over. It has produced well over 50 little aloes in the last 4 years. Close to half the town has an aloe plant from this one.

So today is the day she gets another larger home. I bought one of the largest indoor pots they make so lets hope she slows it down a little or else I don't know what I will do next year.

Now only if I had sold all that aloe instead of giving it away. LOL
