A little green in New Mexico
No, I am not a "greenie".
But here in New Mexico, we are surrounded by so much brown that I heard someone say, "In New Mexico, green is an accent color" and that is so true.
We try to have as many green xeric plants in our yards as we can get to grow well, with as little watering as possible.
However, I have also chosen to fill the indoors of our house with green plants.
I think I have learned how to take care of houseplants fairly well over the years, meaning I don't kill too many of them anymore. Since we have moved to New Mexico, the houseplants I have gotten have been flourishing... and all this green in our house brings us a lot of enjoyment. I am always adding more plants; I guess I will be doing that until I run out of room.
