Hey Gang!  How is Thursday working out for you?  Hopefully….perfect.  Today…I just had to share something with you.  Yep.  You guessed it….my new Lemon Button fern.  She is so very pretty.  If you follow me on Instagram (alongthedirtroad) you can probably already tell that I’m in love with this little plant.  I just had to share it with you today.

If you have read my blog much, you know that we have discussed the fact that for so very long I didn’t have real house plants.  Born in the late seventies…when terrariums where making a splash and house plants were all the rage, by the time I got married and had my own home…that seemed so old school.  I mean, come on.  Ha!

Then I started to get older and more wise (hopefully) and turned into my mother.  (Okay, I just admitted that on the world-wide web.)  I found out that having living green things around  is actually a method of relaxation. For several years now, I have had happy little plants in our home. I enjoy watering them and watching them grow.

Who knew?  Mom knew.  Moms are smart that way. Thanks Mom.

So are you wondering how I came upon Lovely Lady Lemon Button?  (Just kidding, I don’t name them.) Well okay then. Friday night, my daughter and I had to run into town for a bit.  While I was there I got a call from a certain husband.  He told me in a sad little voice that he forgot to pick up turkey tags for both he and our son.  They needed them before sunup the next morning.

Enter:  Lemon Button Fern

When we walked through the front doors of Wal-Mart, there she sat in all of her green glory.  She begged to come home with us.  My daughter couldn’t hear her little voice…but I could.  “Please Ma’am…you look like good folks. Can I please come home with you.  I don’t drink much and I am really quiet.”  What?  Your purchases don’t talk to you?  Okay…mine don’t either…but I was really excited.  She was only five American dollahs.  😉  That makes it all good.

So there you have it Dirt Roaders.  The tale of my lemon button love.  Ain’t she a beaut?  I think so too.  Have a wonderful rest of the……my favorite day of the week.
