September 22nd marked the 12 year anniversary of my dad's death. It's always a day filled with happy memories of the rich life he lived and all the love he shared. It is also the time of year when I begin getting my plants ready to leave their wonderfully warm summer home on our deck and come inside for the winter. I began this endeavor by splitting up my Peace Lillies (and that is as far as I got before I gave up for the day).

This is how it all began. After my dad's funeral twelve long years ago, I picked out a very nice Peace Lilly that some of my friends had sent for the funeral, and I brought it home with me. Well, it has flourished many, many times over, and I think lovingly of my dad each time I walk by one of them. BUT, as you can see from the photo below, things have gotten out of control with this one little plant. Each year I split them when I take them out for their summer retreat and they enjoy the sunshine and warm weather so much that I need to split them again before I bring them back in the house, and this year I hit an all-time high with 36 pots of Peace Lillies. But, aren't they beautiful???

I will be donating some of them to the annual Brookwood Make A Difference Day Flea Market in October, and the rest of them are looking for good homes! SO, next time you visit the Rubber Room, please feel free to take one of these gems home with you. Did I say PLEASE? I meant to say PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE..... My hubby will not be happy if we need to build a green house ;o)
