One thing I have never been blessed with is green fingers. Plants and I just do not seem to be able to come to an understanding on survival. This is kinda bewildering as my parents and grandparents are keen and good gardeners and I attended an agricultural university. Unfortunately SO is not of the green kind either. He has a pollen allergy and really our plants survive because he has a reminder on his phone that he needs to water them.
We just like to deal with the next step in plants (i.e. vegetables), which is preparing and eating them. So is kind of strange that my parents in their happiness bought us a nice green lush plant for our front window, which is floor to ceiling. SO and I made a real effort to keep this gifted plant alive. Truth be told it was doomed from day one and lately it really really looked miserable. Today I put it out of its misery. However we did install a new plant in the pot.
We really hope that this one will stay with us a bit longer. But you know what happens when you are walking around on a free day at the garden centre? You see all these wonderful, nice, healthy plants and you get a wee bit too greedy for green. So after not too much deliberation we decided on another plant, with pot. In fact it took us more time to find the pot than the plant :-). So there we are two plants the richer and we have also started on our garden project. Chances are you’ll hear more about that this spring, but the intention is that our poor little garden, with the size of a large stamp will get and upgrade to a dream relaxing garden. To be continued.
