Back when I started I would have said spraying for bugs/fungus/etc was a chore. But lately it has become one of my favorite things. In fact, watering makes me smile to see the green roots and new root growth. Spraying reminds me I will have fewer bugs and plants with strange problems that causes them to slowly die. And like above; I enjoy talking to my plants and touching their leaves to see how they are doing. I am sure my neighbors think i'm a nutty plant lady, but that's okay....i'm sure they also enjoy the pretty flowers....just like I do.
