This pandemic has turned a good number of mums into plant mummas and if you have not joined the bandwagon, where have you been hiding? Just kidding. But if you are late in this relaxing and sanity-saving trend, it is never too late to begin now.
If you are worried that you do not have a green thumb, worry no more. I do not possess the prowess to care for plants and make them thrive, either, but over time, I have come to realize that caring for plants is so much like caring for our little ones. We not only need to water them for them to thrive and grow, we also need to give them love and nurturing.
If you are wondering which plants to care for if you are a beginner, wonder no more. I made a list of plants you may want to start caring for to jumpstart your gardening and plantita journey. You may also consider getting additional gardening tools like shovels, sprinkler, or best hose reels for the money! But these are optional as you can always start with whatever tools you have available around your house.
So, on to my list of 5 easy plants for beginners:
I was excited when I found out that one of my favorite memes is back! Although I am quite in a fix because I do not have as much pink stuff as I used to, it would still be a joy to join Pink Fridays whenever I can.
To start off, I am sharing an old photo taken last year but is just as pink and pretty as can be. Most of my plants from last year have wilted and dried up for some reason, but I am thankful that this one withstand not only the storms but also the dry and sunny weather. The name of the plant escapes me, though, so feel free to drop a comment if you knew. I initially plan to put it on my parents’ grave, but since the memorial authorities are not allowing it, it ended up on my teeny-weeny front yard. Summer is the best time to grow more of these, so I am planning to get some more the next time I go to the garden center. A visit is long overdue as I am in need of more garden supplies so I can plant the seeds a friend sent me from Palawan.
Hover over this Pink Friday post for instructions on how to join this pink meme. Meanwhile, I am checking online now if there is a pink electric banjo I can share next week! 😉
