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:
The orchids are beautiful. What a wonderful destiny they have.
Thanks! I hope they’ll survive with us leaving them alone for 2 weeks.
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!!!
You are so clever 😀 being an interpreter I envy your interpretation skills 😀
Thank you very much Paula. Lovely compliment 😀
P.S. You removed likes? To avoid click wh0res? Good, I left you stars 😛
No, the reason was that I prefer when people are leaving comments and besides: when people clicked like I felt that I had to visit their blog and click like on some of their stuff. In the end I felt like it was getting out of control: likes were flying around the internet with no control! 😀
I was annoyed with likes as much as you, but decided to leave them out of fear that nobody would leave any trace on my blog :D.
I wrote some about my choice to leave the Like button for a while in this post as well: https://cardinalguzman.wordpress.com/2012/08/23/one-year-has-passed/

A little piece of nature in the concrete jungle.

These are so pretty CG, love the coffee pot!
Me too, the coffee pot is awesome.
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.
Oh, is that the trick, okay, will have to try it…I best look for not so needy plants in the future.
Your orchids are gorgeous!
Very impressive orchids. Nice shots. Do you not drink espresso?
RICHARD! Of course I drink espresso!! Get a grip!!! 😀
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.
Great work my friend 🙂
Thanks Jake. Did you post a photo for the challenge this week?

A lovely garden. I like the coffee pot planter.

Beautiful orchid. 😉
Thank you Elizabeth
wonderful, simply wonderful 🙂 thanks for the mention
My pleasure Roket
Love the creative use of the coffee percolator 🙂 Cool shots!
Thanks. FInally it turned into something useful again.
I don’t normally do this stuff – leaving my links at other people’s blogs, but I could use hearing your opinion on this ;). No need to bother reading the whole text just the bold font and to see 4 crappy or not pictures here
Sometimes B/W is great and sometimes color is better, on that photo I think color is the best choice.
Definitely, you still haven’t chose between the two colour posted photos 😉
Thanks CG 😉
P.S. Tomorrow I will check out your pickles….

Wish you had a like button. I’d have hit it several times. Great photos.
Thanks Myth. I used to have a like-button, but decided to remove it: I prefer comments.
I like comments too. Did your comment count go up when you took the like button off?
It’s a bit early to say. I turned it off on my recent post named “one year has passed”. So far it seems like the comment count is approximately at the same level, but to get enough material to really compare I’ll have to post a few more posts (not counting the Weekly Photo Challenge posts) .
Weekly photos are my best draws so far.
Hope your comments soar. ;0)
Fantastic idea with the coffee pot, great idea urban garden from you @Cardinal. Thanks for sharing 😛
No problem! Actually your comment reminded me that I’ll have to water my plants today, so thanks to you too 🙂
