It’s just a fancy word for trees and flowers, you know. I always enjoyed watching my mom and grandparents grow stuff when I was little. I adopted their practices and began to grow my own things as well. I started with little pine trees that I would find in the woods. These trees had no change of growing underneath the huge oaks that were the victors of the forest.
I would put these little pine trees on a dirt slab and water them once every two days. It was nice to do and really cool to see life grow like that. Unfortunately, only two or tree of my pine trees have survived the time between them being planted in their new digs and the time of today.
But at college I’m growing some strawberries. I had a little plant sophomore year, but I have no idea what it was called. All I know is that it died a miserable death. But my strawberries are doing pretty good so far. I’m also growing some forget-me-nots right next to them. My hopes is that they will be ready for Valentine’s day, but I doubt it.
I like the plants in my room because it makes it feel more homey. Plus, it adds a great amount of life in this place. I hope to post some more pictures soon so I can show you that college is a place where not only we grow, but so do our flora buddies.
