Now that we have a yard of our own (very very small, but still a yard) I’ve noticed a whole new enthusiasm in me towards plants and flowers.
My mom usually spends the entire summertime outside in her garden, and when she isn’t there, she is most likely reading one of her gardening books. I’ve always wondered what’s the catch?
But now that the snow has almost melted, small green signs of spring appear here and there, and the sun rays start to be warm, I catch myself thinking about flowers, plants and gardening… What’s happening in here? 😀
More and more often, I find myself at the gardening section at stores, looking at flowerpots and seeds. I google for advice on internet about how to keep my plants alive. I’ve even thought about getting a small flower table inside, so I could have more flowers here (because I have now idea when the constructor will finnish our backyard, so I could actually start doing something gardening-related outside…).
The funniest part is, this all could be such a huge waste of time and money because I seriously don’t have a clue, am I able to keep any plant alive for long. When I was studying, life was so irregular, that it was best to go with plastic or cut flowers. Well, I had one orchid experiment, but that didn’t exactly encourage me in these gardening and growing plants -endeavors… (Btw, despite everything that orchid is still alive and well and often blooming, because it has been in my mom‘s care for years already).
We’ll see if this craze settles down, when the reality kicks in.
P.S. I’ve managed to keep those white saint paulias in the pictures alive for over two months already. That has got to be a good sign, right?
