Bane, Bella, and Basil
Meet my friends. Bane, Bella and Basil (pronouced "BAH-zil") are my new basil plants and they live here in my kitchen.
Aren't they gorgeous? Bane is lanky and tall and quite athletic, Bella is delicate and sweet, and Basil? Well, his classic good looks will take him far in this life, I have no doubt.
Mmm, okay, yes. We name our plants. Technically, it was my fourth daughter who chose the names, and made these nifty name tags to keep them straight. But then again, I'm the one who used to bring my crayons home for the weekend because I thought they would be lonely in my desk at school, so I must take responsibility for those anthropomorphising tendencies.
But still, I think they like to be named. I can see them smiling. Can you?
