Looking after plants

This is the one thing that I really enjoy! It does not matter now that my vision is gone. I still enjoy looking after my beloved plants. They never let me down! They are always there for me!

I have learned over the years how to be good to my plants. Water them regularly and they'll be happy forever. My techniques are the same whether or not my vision is gone. I stick my finger into the soil of said plant to gauge whether or not it is damp. Then with the utmost of care I drizzle water into the pot. I feel the leaves to make sure that they are green and healthy, and if they are dry and brittle then I gently remove them.

I do not think that a lack of vision prevents me from being able to look after my plants. If the leaves are dry then they are brittle. If they are green then they feel nice and firm to the touch.

The greatest challenge for me is to ensure that I keep them clean, and naturally! There will be times when I miss out on those dead leaves that have fallen out of my reach but that's the challenge for me! To find and destroy them!

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"If you either are or have been a victim of crime, violence, abuse, or bullying, and if you are simply tired of being bombarded with audios and scenes of the above, then I am asking for your support. I have written and recorded audio mysteries that are completely void of vivid descriptions of sex, crime, and violence because I firmly believe that it is time for us to use the spoken word to help influence our kids to start listening to content that is clean and healthy. By doing this we can all do our part to tackle crime in a positive and meaningful way and it only costs pennies per day. Visit my online store at
I thank you and your kids will also thank you!"
