WARNING: SO MUCH TO CATCH UP ON! HERE COME SOME FRANTIC UPDATES!
1. Of course – My garden. I don’t care if Juli thinks I’m crazy for treating my veggies like ‘my babies’ – you can’t say it doesn’t give results! This was my harvest from one day last week – it made such a tasty dinner! 😀
I can’t say the same thing for my Kangaroo paws – I finally ventured out of my comfort zone and bought some FLOWERS! I bought three Kangaroo paws – yellow, red and lipstick pink (?!) and some Bogonias (I think that’s what they’re called… I keep forgetting). I managed to love the Kangaroo paw too much and the Bogonias not enough. I’ve watered the drought resistant ones and planted them in lovely rich soil when apparently all they want is sand. (At least I refrained from fertilising them). I’ve put my shade loving Bogonia’s in the full sun and neglected to keep them moist…it’s all falling apart! Too much stress. Clearly this is why I should stick to vegetables.
My sister actually asked me if I was obsessed with Botany the other day. Ha! It was probably only 12 months ago that I would leave the room as soon as Mum and co got on the topic. So. Dull. And constantly the topic of conversation!! Seriously – now THERE’S a woman obsessed with Botany – (kidding, Mum). Having said that, it is kinda addictive. Or more to the point – once you start it’s just hard to stop. You invest financially and emotionally in this little project, and if you stop or get behind, it can all just fall apart! So once you’re in it – you’re in it buddy. Big time. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing…
Ok, there’s one update. A lot longer than I’d intended. Stay tuned! I promise the next update has nothing green in it! xo
