"We Were Robbed!!!"
The greenhouse sits atop the roll top desk. Said greenhouse has not been cleaned for a while. Here in AZ dust piles up fast, but that is a LOT of dust!
I took it down and used some Windex on the outside.
She turned to me and whispered, "We were robbed! Someone took almost all of the plants!"
I calmed her down and told her that the plants had simply been moved to other scenes.
She went into a tizzy and demanded that I replace all of them immediately.
I tried to explain that it is the purpose of the greenhouse to furnish all of the other scenes with plants as needed. That's the whole point of a greenhouse.
She looked down her nose at me and hissed, "The plants should all be replaced when you do that. You have not been doing your job!"
I hate to admit it, but she's right. I have not made any replacement plants in a couple of years now.
I guess that would be a good idea. After all, who knows when we will need a spiderwart or a petunia.
So...Back down comes the greenhouse and out come the flower making materials and tools.
That will keep me busy and out of mischief for a couple of days. I am putting Tessie in charge of the glue syringe and here's hoping that she glues herself to a chair somewhere. Maybe the workroom would be a good place for it, since I plan to work in the bedroom... I can only hope...
See you tomorrow.
