Noritake Gardens,Nagoya, Japan.
Friday was a national holiday celebrating the Spring Equinox. Because of that I decided to do a bit of work in my garden. I was able to get some new plants for around ¥80 to ¥100 each, so I bought 12. I spent a couple of hours planting them.
Over the holidays, I aquired a couple more plants. From the local Daiso, I got the tall green on on the right. The daffodils were from a sale at the supermarket. The middle one has been in my collection for a while, but was bought off the clearance rack at Muji.
Some of my smaller plants have been doing very well despite the cooler temperatures. This is one of the ones I got from Muji on clearance. After staking it will chopsticks, it started growing offshoots very quickly. Hopefully it will continue to thrive in the coming months.
A couple of weeks ago, I had a dentist appointment near my old apartment. Because it wasn’t too far away, I decided to walk there instead of taking the train. On the way, there was an old man with a wwooden cart selling pants and flowers. Since it’d be hard to take the flowers into the appointment with me, I settled on buying them if he was still there on the walk back. He was, so I made a purchase.
Bought a new phone yesterday after using the same one for almost 3 and a half years.
So, I decided to take a few test shots in my garden this morning. I think I’ve found the settings I like. There is a pro option, where a lot of things can be manually set.
All in all, I’m happy.
When I bought this particular plant, it was already in bloom, with tiny red flowers. After those wilted about a week later, I resigned myself to owning an admittedly nice leafy plant. Imagine my surprise when it started to bloom once again.
My tomatoes are coming in! All four point five of them!
I never thought this tiny little blog would ever have so many visitors. Thank you all so much!
After work on Friday, I stopped at the value supermarket close to the school I was stationed at. I meant to only to pick up a few things, but I ended up adding two more plants to my collection, bringing my total up to eight.
This pretty plant was in the gardening section next to the begonias and was selling for a not-so-wopping ¥98. I figured, why not?
Mind you I have absolutely no idea what kind of plant this is…
