I think I have mentioned before how much I just LOVE plants and how it is becoming a hobby (which I feel are important to have!), but I definitely am still a rookie when it comes to growing plants in and outdoors. What I am really starting to love is the constant learning and the community of plant lovers!
I visited my parents this past weekend–my mom definitely has the talent; a natural greenthumb! I wish I had taken pictures of her flower garden, vegetable garden, and the assorted indoor plants throughout the house. Among so many, she has 13 orchids that bloom at different times of the year! She taught me a lot about which indoor plants need east sun, south sun–there is so much to know!
On Sunday, Josh and I visited friends of ours who we hadn’t seen in awhile, and when we got there, the first thing I noticed was all the containers of plants, vegetables, flowers, in the front and back yard! Our friend is a natural botanist and it shows! She had multiple types of lettuce, peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, flowers, etc etc etc (again, I wish I had taken pictures!)
What I am loving about the planting community, is the sharing of knowledge and plants! She gave me romaine lettuce, purple lettuce, and kale plants and taught me how to trim them, how much sun they need etc..I am VERY excited about this! So in return, I gave her an ivy plant (my mom and I on the weekend found a good deal on ivys and aloe vera so naturally I stocked up) as they are great indoor plants to have!
Anyway, I just thought I would share my garden-themed experiences this past week..
Until next time..T. xx
