We buy lots of plants.

Aliz likes cactii and I like things that aren't cactii.

Every surface in the house is groaning under the weight of our little green friends. 

Often we buy them because we feel sorry for them. There was a whole passel of sunflower plants in Lidl the other day. They hadn't been watered and they were looking forlorn. I had to have one.

Plants have personalities, don't you think?

So do rocks....

there was an article in the new york times not too long ago about Pedro Martinez, the star pitcher for the Mets (and former star pitcher for Boston), and his flower gardens. he says you have to talk to the plants so they grow well. he is quoted as telling his tulips "aren't you going to grow up to be so pretty?"

Prince Charles is said to do the same.

I beleive there's been scientific work done to demonstrate that plants respond to the human voice.
