Some people are blessed with green hands. They can grow any plant, anywhere.
Like Mum, she’s got green hands. (She’s also got a happy heart, and somehow the two seem to be connected. ) A bountiful luxuriant green garden she has- one half an ornamental and the other the kitchen garden. Her organic garden has bountifully yielded her with produce such as pink pepper, turmeric, guavas, custard apples, bananas, coconuts.
Every time I visit home, I find a new addition in her backyard, balconies and around the home. This time, it was this conchshell planter.
I have lost many plants in my pursuit of balcony-gardening.
I am still trying, one pot of a plant at a time.
And mum’s creations, are surely inspirational.
It’s almost raining…
