Friday Fictioneers: Planters

PHOTO PROMPT © Ronda Del Boccio

I have never liked these planters. Are these flowers? Are these grass? Nope, these are just useless plastic straws my former roommate had decided to buy to make the apartment look “greener”.

My former roommate is one of those people whose dream is to be gardener but kills every plant she touches. I, on the other hand, have the opposite effect on plants. Every plant I grow flourishes.

So why do I need these fake plants in my apartment? I can’t take cool macro photos or watch them grow since they are plastic.


Right, I don’t need them.

  1. One thing is for certain, these plastic straws look like real grass:D Maybe look at it this way, if you add your touch of plantery to your place, these will be the complimentary greenery.
