Rescued plant from my Aunt!

When my sweet Aunt Dot passed away last year, I found this little pothos plant in her kitchen window. It was already withering away from either too much water (there was no hole in bottom of pot), or too dry from lack of watering after she died. I'm sure, when she was alive, she knew exactly how much or little water to give it and it was happy in the kitchen window! My Aunt Dot was a great gardener, inside and out! Anyway, after she died, I could not bear to see her little plant neglected, so my cousin let me bring it to my house! While I get her pretty ceramic pot cleaned up and a hole drilled in bottom, I decided to transfer it to a temporary home in a plastic planter with new Miracle Gro soil, and I popped it into a gorgeous yellow pot I found at the thrift store that was brand new from IKEA! I printed a label with dots on it, since her name had to be DOTTIE! Isn't she just so pretty in her new temporary home! I'm thinking she looks happy!

Glad you were able to rescue this plant, and I think it's sweet that you named it Dottie after your dear Aunt.

Have a nice weekend and a wonderful 2014 ~ FlowerLady

Aw, sweet. It needed to be on your happy window sill. Your aunt would be happy.

Have a great new year Julie.

Hi Julie!

I'm sure Dottie will thrive now that she is being cared for by you. She sure looks happy to me and I love the sign you made for her.

Wishing you and your family a very Happy New Year! xo
