Taken May 31st, 2013. Before I got this strawberry planter, I never knew strawberries started as white flowers.
05/24/13: I found this praying mantis on my Roma Tomato plant. Apparently having predatory insects like the praying mantis or a lady bug is good for your garden because they eat pests that eat your plants, so they are a sort of natural pesticide. Yenny and I are trying to make our vegetable gardening organic and pesticide-free, so finding this praying mantis was a good sign.
My Gift To My Mom for Mother’s day
It’s a succulent dish garden that I arranged using 5 different succulents. My mother loved it! It will last her a long time! And the best part for me (I’m broke), it wasn’t that expensive, just a little over $20.
I recommend it as a gift idea.
Hanging Strawberry Planter that I bought from Wal-Mart for only 7$.
The pot is red and has indentations and the leaves above it are bright green, so it resembles a strawberry!
I hung it from the slanting ceiling by using a shepherd’s hook meant for a balcony railing (usually meant to stand up-right) and I flipped it upside down. This way the strawberry plant won’t be under the roof where it would be in the shade. It’ll get more sunlight this way.
The owl I bought from Ross to keep Godric, the Gargoyle, some company. Only 2$. Not bad, eh?
The owl from The Legend of Zelda, Kaepora Gaebora, is said to be a reincarnation of Rauru, the sage of the light temple.
Pigwidgeon is the name of Ron Weasley’s owl in the Harry Potter series.
