Plants and Cats

What have I been doing lately? Well, there’s a lot. Aside from work and other things, I enjoy taking care of my cats and plants. I’ve been wanting to write an update regarding them and there’s a lot but I’ll try to keep it short.

First of all, a photo! :p I know it’s too early for Halloween, but it’s been a while since I’ve taken something cringy. =))

I wasn’t planning to become a plant lady and until now, I don’t consider myself to be one. During Christmas last year, I got myself a pot of red rose: something low maintenance. I wanted to have a rose garden (just like Shizuma and another character) and I thought that’s about it. I wasn’t planning to get anything else.

By the way, my roses still produce abundant blooms as always. ❤

Loon previously left her herbs in my care because they were too heavy for her to carry. She keeps on giving me cacti and succulents too.

Taking care of plants reminded me of my childhood. I used to plant fruits and vegetables with my cousin back in the days, and when I thought of it, I felt like planting something edible again. My parents would definitely love them too.

I bought some seeds when I came across a seller. I also informed Loon about it and she bought way more than mine. lol

Loon gave me a seedling tray when I came over her place. We were excited to plant the seeds.

Some of them started to grow after a few days.

Loon’s flowers are so colorful.

Loon’s yellow roses. The petals are mostly yellow mixed with orange. They turn to peachy pink, then white as they wither.

We tried to germinate some seeds. Unfortunately, I lost some development photos. T_T

I was eating some lychee one day and I thought I should try germinating the seeds too. lol

Experiment #2. To be honest, I didn’t put a lot of care on these ones. I just tossed them into the soil to see if they’d develop… and they did! (Only slower than the others though.)

It was finally time to plant them.

Day 1: After 15 hours, some already started to peek out of the soil.

Day 2: They were growing so fast!

Here they are now. I’ll take better photos when the rainy days are over.

I had been planning to upload more things about cats too, but this entry is getting too long so I’ll save it for later! ❤
