RE: The Great Big Fluffy 'Am I Weird Because...?' Thread.

I love people who talk to their plants! I only have one plant (a cactus) and I only talk to him when I feed him, but I proper love people who are like 'PLANTS ARE LIKE MY CHILDREN' (we filmed a documentary with a woman who was like this, and my mum feels the same way about her plants).

I dunno if it's weird. But it's certainly lovely to talk to your plants and/or treat them like people.

This reminds me of the Jack Prelutsky poem, Floradora Doe:

Consider the calamity
of Floradora Doe,
who talked to all her plants, because
she thought it helped them grow,
she recited to her ivy,
to her fennel, ferns, and phlox,
she chatted with her cacti
in their little window box.

She murmered to her mosses,
and she yammered to her yew,
she babbled to her basil,
to her borage and bamboo,
she lectured to her laurels,
to her lilac and her lime,
she whispered to her willows,
and she tittered to her thyme.

She gossiped with a poppy,
and she prattled to a rose,
she regaled her rhododendrons
with a constant stream of prose,
then suddenly, one morning,
every plant keeled over, dead.
Alas! moaned Foradora.
Was it something that I said?
