Every now and again I get a random request from someone to use one of my photos for a travel brochure or an online something or other. Oh, no money has ever changed hands, but still – it’s nice to be asked! Recently I had a request to use this picture of my dashboard garden in a blog post about RV gardening.
(I confess this has been a favorite ‘dashboard’ picture of mine since it includes a picture of my family, a fabric rendition of The Cabin, flowers given to me by my hubby, my traveling dashboard plants, and over in the corner my small collection of rocks. Plus – it’s sitting on a little quilt! It’s like a small collection of my favorite things! (And it looks so tidy – not a common state of the dashboard!) But to get back on topic…..)
Sure, I said! And asked for a link to the article when she published it. That happened last week, so if you’d like to check it out – HERE you go! It turns out there are many, many, MANY options for maintaining a green thumb while you’re traveling!
Truth be told, I don’t really have much of a green thumb. My little collection of dashboard plants seem to thrive even with my blatant neglect. This summer, for the first time in about forever, I splurged on a couple of potted plants to spruce up the ‘yard’. And in an effort to give my indoor plants a bit of a summer vacation, I’ve moved the jade plant and the aloe plant outdoors to keep them company.
Guess we’ll just have to see how this new gardening endeavor goes!
