January 17, 2015The Pink Cucumber Re-Plant horticulture, mahogany, marula
It’s interesting to see how everything changes. The plants in your garden grow, the weather goes from scorching hot into a massive storm in 1.5 seconds. You also might find yourself on the up and down roller coaster of life, as I have.
My disappointment in not being able to study horticulture was great, and now it has greatly been replaced by the fact that I have started studying it! All it took was finding a private provider of these courses and what do you know, suddenly you can’t stop staring at the parking lot of your favourite mall, trying to figure out which brick laying pattern has been used to build it!
It is very exciting, next week I’ll have to find a suitable landscape construction somewhere in Pretoria to write a massive paper on. In a few months I’ll have to design my dream garden – I wonder whether they’ll be as excited as I am about the unicorns…
Anyways, I might have mentioned that my marula tree has been stolen. One day I just noticed that it was gone, which made me obsess and turn the garage and the garden upside down and inside out, but I simply didn’t find it. And don’t try to tell me that a pot with a tree blew over a two meter wall in a storm! This was one of Dr Pink Cucumber’s theories (another one was that I just put it somewhere while I was in my maniac cleaning mode and I just can’t find it now, which is so UNTRUE! Both the losing the tree and the maniac cleaning. There is absolutely nothing wrong with cleaning all the time!).
So naturally, I went and ordered twenty more seeds, among others, from the fantastic Seeds for Africa (we loooove Black Friday discounts!). We’re a few weeks in, and here are my little babies:
