Today I went to Praktiker for some weird DIY stuff. I have a long relationship with this brand since 2003 when ][ and I were hired by the company to make some research for their expansion here. It was really funny 4 years later finally to get for the first time in the store for a walk and shopping. I didn't bought what I needed but ended up with a tiny rose in a tiny pot. It was a handful of rose plant. Funny, but the rose had greenflies. Later I spoke to ][ and we talked how actually Praktiker have this nasty plan of taking their money back from me first by selling the rose, then by selling the anti-greenflies-spray, then eventually by selling me bigger pot and pack of soil, fertilizers and so on. ][ requested a picture of the rose and since I am serious about my promises (unlike him;) here is the picture and along with it, here is a short trip in my "garden".
The ROSE. Looks huge, but is a handful of rose-pot.
|The root in the middle is my first rose, it's about 15 months old. It was a garden rose and probably that's why it didn't survive the indoor conditions. The good thing is that the tiny orange and lemon trees still like the pot and are growing and growing. The flat long leaves belong to a date. Which again proves the old rule: Guys, never throw your seeds in any pot, cos they really could grow into something.|
|I do not know what is this. The seeds came with some Domestos promo for springtime cleaning.||This is called Nigela Damascena. P. is convinced that it is blossoming dill.|
|I hate avocados. My revenge is to grow one at home.||Plum. It is actually a tree and its fruits are quite tasty. Anyone for marmalade?|
