Do you collect anything? I mean things that you actually like and want to have several of, not the kind of collection that happens when one day you mention you like chickens, so then everyone gives you chicken-themed gifts from that moment on.
I didn’t think I had any collections, but then I looked out at my balcony and realized I have a huge plant collection. Some of the plants have grown so big this summer they look like they’re about to take over.
Orange tree, lime tree, bougainvillea, luffa, tomatoes, peppers, something with purple flowers, mint, thai basil, sweet basil, chives, parsley, oleander… and that’s just the balcony. It doesn’t even include the plants at the front door or the orchids inside.
So yes, I collect plants. I love them, I usually want more, and it’s really obvious.
