Weekly Photo Challenge: My Urban Garden

The theme for the weekly photo challenge is “Urban”, in addition to that Miz Roket had a post called “Pieces of a Home” where I wrote a comment were I said: “Perhaps I’ll borrow your idea and shoot some photos around the apartment”.

Here are my plants, growing in my urban garden:

  1. Oh I love orchids, if my green thumb hadn’t fallen off maybe I’d try some! My ex’s mom always had a few and they are just so gorgeous and she said they are actually not as hard as one would think, maybe some day I’ll try again – I used to be good at plants, these days not so much. I got a Calla Lily for my birthday in March and I’ve almost completely destroyed it :S

    • Probably you’ve watered your Calla Lily too much. Most people tend to drown their plants. Orchids are beautiful, once we had one that got 13 flowers on one branch! I had to support the whole pot so it wouldn’t fall over.

      • lol no, I would claim neglect – forgetting it exists is a real problem ;) that’s why I am a dog person more than a cat person. A dog will say ok feed me, time for a walk, time to play etc. – cats tend to be more passive aggressive… although the cat I had growing up would meow to be fed, he was a big fat orange tabby – he didn’t mess around when it came to meal time ;) 13 flowers on one plant would be amazing!!!

  11. Wow, you got some awesome gardening skills and no need to mention your great photography skills…:)
    *sigh* all my houseplants manage to will themselves dead. ;(

    • I’ve also had a few plants that’s commited suicide, but I’ve managed to keep them all happy and sane the last couple of years. Now I’m just doing my best to keep them a branch lenghts distance from collective suicide and it seems to be working.

    • RICHARD! Of course I drink espresso!! Get a grip!!! :D
      The pot you see here is an old and ruined one, it was destined for the garbage bin, so I gave it a new purpose as a home for plants.
