To the ends of the earth…and back!

Senecio jacobsenii and an elephant bush

A few weeks ago, I was at Lowe’s picking up some household items when I found myself in the plant section looking for some greenery! Much to my delight, I found a Senecio jacobsenii, native to Tanzania and Kenya, as well as an Elephant bush. Because, at that time, I had not planned to be back anytime soon, I thought, “I might as well bring a bit of East Africa to me, if I cannot bring myself to East Africa.”

Well, friends, I’m happy to report that the plants seem to be thriving, despite the chillier climate of the north east. My petals, on the other hand, have been wilting a bit in the cold, so as a 27th bday present–Nov 10–I booked a flight last week to Tanzania!

This Wednesday, November 16, I’m departing for a brief two week trip to check in on the children and visit with some friends. Please check in periodically over the next few weeks, or SUBSCRIBE, by clicking the little “Follow +” button in the bottom right hand corner of this page, to stay up to date with my adventures!

Thanks friends! Tanzania, here I come!
