plants & time

A close family friend gave me a Marginata palm/Madagascar Dragon tree as a housewarming present back in 2006 – the photo on the left was taken shortly after that. The photo on the right was taken two and a half years later, in 2009.

And here’s the same plant today, in 2013 (it desperately needs to be repotted, but I’m waiting to do so until I move again this spring):

Time, man. It sneaks up on you.

note: while I’m not terrible at caring for plants, I’m not particularly amazing at it either – this thing is just unkillable. Also, forgive the photo quality, while I eventually found my camera after moving, I have yet to find its battery charger.
