For me, signs of life make a real home. Having plants around somehow change how I feel about a place. When I first got to Texas our apartment was set up nicely and Trevor added a few nice touches to make it feel like home to me. His decorating was great, but once we added plants to the mix it started to feel like home. Leaving all of my plants behind was pretty hard for me. I gifted many to friends and family and now am acquiring a few more bits of green to make my apartment more like my home.
