my urban garden
Things have played out as I expected since my last urban garden update. Not because I’m pessimistic, but realistic. I have not the greenest thumb, I grow them in an area that gets full sun in summer only, and we travelled so often last year. All these things mean that these cute little ones below did not make it through the festive season. I loved every moment I had them though. They brought me pleasure and calmness. My undemanding peace lily and golden palm are doing just fine. The peace lily knows it’s my favourite green-child. It gets admired each day and pride of place on a chair from my childhood.
I have seen a few bloggers praise the easy-care nature of succulents. Perhaps I shall try them next. I am keen to find put more about other house/shade plants too. I laughed with my husband on a nursery outing – one plant was labelled “thrives on neglect”. Yes! I need one that thrives on love, paparazzi attention, unintentional drowning or drought, occasional lonely periods and lack of fertiliser. Ugly plants need not apply. Yep. I’m plantist.
