On Wednesday I made a round-trip to North Carolina to pick up our house plants.
I left DC at 8.30 am and just after lunch I dropped off my laptop at my old work. It was nice to say hello there, and we had coffee together. Then I drove to Esteban’s house in Durham; it was great to catch up. Our plants had stayed there for a week (thank you guys!).
Around 4.00 pm I left again, with the car full of our plants. There were eight plants in total, three small ones and five large. They filled the entire car and I couldn’t use the rear view mirror on the way home.
The plants survived the four hour journey pretty well, except for a few branches that were exposed to the sun at the rear window and got too hot and burned. The last two hours I put the air conditioning very cold, and I think that helped.
The plants are now in our home again, and they cheer up the apartment.
