Ok I don’t even know how to begin this post because I don’t want to be too long winded BUT I don’t see any other way…so buckle up!!! Not long ago I got on Greg and met some women who have become my plant friends and my sister friends πŸ’šπŸ’— (Shout out to #TexasGregGang because my envy for your meetups led me to find these women πŸ˜‚) @LatiTish84 @AwesomePlants @ManyLime πŸ₯Ή I came home from work to overwhelming beauty. Ok ok…so I kind of spoiled the surprise earlier in the week because I was tempted to buy for myself what they already had on the way. So they had to let the cat out of the bag. But even though it wasn’t a surprise in the traditional way my heart is still so full. Full of gratitude for these ladies and our connection through plants and life in general. Full of hope in a world where people can be so wicked and unkind…I see love and laughter and sisterhood in these women. Thank you guys for welcoming me in the way you have and for paying attention enough to know what 2 of my top wish list plants were, but for going the extra mile and actually surprising me (kind of πŸ˜¬πŸ€“) with them. I decided to name the #pinksyngonium Bubble Yum weeks ago so that’s her name. As for the #PhilodendronBirkin I decided to name her Taj (Tish, Awesome, Jennifer) after my friends who blessed me with her. I’m hopeful that our friendship continues to grow outside of Greg. Shout out to @jcPlantProper #plantproper for another (unsurprisingly) stunning shipment πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎ As usual, the pictures don’t do them any justice πŸ€©πŸ˜πŸ’šPlease thank Angela for the secure packaging πŸ’— #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #PlantAddict #PlantGirlfriends #Philodendron #SyngoniumSquad

This is just so fantastic, love all this getting together, what an amazing plant family we have here on Greg. You're all so awesome πŸ’―πŸ’ž
Omg!! They're gorgeous! 😍 I got the same two plants together! But my Birkin died when I left town for a couple of daysπŸ₯Ί
@GreeneryQueen Good morning and thank youuuuu!!! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’– What are the odds that we got the same 2 plants. But oh no about the Birkin!!!!! 😩 After only a few days?! Was it in a sunny window? Do you plan to get another one?
@RavenBlair2022 Thanks Raven! It was nice chatting with you too. You and your little one πŸ₯°πŸ’–
@Vjunc It really warmed my heart too girl πŸ’– My heart had been set on that birkin for awhile. The fact that they were paying attention to what I wanted is just πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’— They are ALL amazing in different ways for different reasons. I’m truly grateful and can’t WAIT for us to get together πŸ’š
I do want to get another one because it was soooo gorgeous. It was in a sunny window but I think I overwatered it before I left. It had a huge leaf drop while i was gone for 3 days.It never really recovered after that
@alex Hey Alex!!! Oh ok!! Another NYer πŸ‘πŸΎ πŸ’ͺ🏾 Whenever you come back this way, maybe we can have another meetup. The welcome on the app and off has been very warm. They truly are the best. This app is a great gateway for folk who share your planty passion πŸ’šπŸͺ΄and if you’re lucky you’ll establish a friendship or 2 along the way. #grateful πŸ™πŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎ
@LatiTish84 I know I stressed y’all out πŸ«£πŸ˜¬πŸ˜‚ I’m grateful for the effort you guys put into making this a special pre-birthday surprise for me. When we get together….πŸŽ‰πŸ’šπŸ’— It’s going to be a good time with my #PlantSis and I can’t wait to become a #plantfairy myself. Always better to give than to receive. Looking forward to blessing someone the way you ladies did me πŸ™πŸΎπŸ’š
@sarahsalith Awww!!! I’m SO HAPPY to be here Sarah. Truly πŸ’šπŸ’—πŸ’šπŸ’—
@Pegster Thank you for the birthday shout out Peggy!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ And yes. The ladies and @jcPlantProper really hooked me up. Love my 2 new plant babies πŸ’—πŸ’šπŸ’—πŸ’šπŸ’—
@GreeneryQueen Aren’t they just beautiful?! πŸ’šπŸ’›πŸ€ I know your feelings were hurt when you saw that dropped leaf. I’m sure when it’s time you’ll get another one. Share pics when/if you do πŸ‘πŸΎ
