Flowers on the porch are beautiful and look great for the neighbors, but if you spend most of your day inside, you want flowers you can see and enjoy too. Growing flowering plants in pots indoors is a little bit different than outside in a garden, so you'll need to make sure you pick the right kinds of flowers and get the right supplies for them. But once you have all of the info, it's not too hard!
If you find yourself feeling a little empty or lonely, a great way to combat those feelings is to care for another living thing. And maybe you have children, but they have been going through some stuff lately, and it feels like an upward battle with them. Maybe you have pets, and they keep getting into the trash or pooping on your carpet. You know what won't ever let you down? Plants!
