National Take Your Houseplant for a Walk Day

Just in case you haven't heard, today is National Take Your Houseplant for a Walk Day. Though I have walked many dogs, a ferret, and an elderly relative or two, I have never walked a houseplant.  According to the experts, walked plants gain a "familiarity with their environment" and "a sense of wellness." I believe my poor plant is past any chance of "wellness." 


Walter looks a lot better in this picture than he does in reality. Maybe I should buy him a pretty pot to die in.

I found a fun post called 20 Geek Gadgets for Growing Plants Indoors. If walking your houseplant does not appeal to you, perhaps one of these gadgets will.

The Robot Planter. Your houseplant could walk itself.

The Biotower. Their environment would be so perfect, you wouldn't need to walk them.

Hey! I didn't know Luke Skywalker and the Jedi Knights reincarnated as plants. That's what sky walking will do for you.

Mark Parisi draws some great cartoons.

So take a spin around the block with your plant today. Your plant may not care, but the neighbors will love it.

I want jedi light sabers for my dying plants. Maybe it will help their transition to the after plant life.

Every little bit helps. I'm surprised I haven't been haunted by the ghosts of plants I've killed. They should appear at my bedside, waving their tiny leaves shrieking, "You killed us! You killed us!" The stuff of nightmares.
