My little green thumb..


When you have beautiful things around you, everything seems pleasant..
A beautiful thing can be a nice painting, a pretty scenery or even a nice garden..
It’s the third one that I am going to talk about..

Back home (in Kerala) we have a moderately big garden.. With lots of flowering plants, herbs, vegetables and some trees even.. But here in Bangalore, court-yard filled with soil or a lawn or a patio is a luxury that only some can afford.. When life shifts to apartments and high risers from single houses and countryside, gardening becomes a hobby that many cant indulge in.
I should confess that I like to get down and dirty when it comes to plants.. The feel and smell of fresh soil and the sight of a new berry gets me all excited..:-)

I have started up-cycling when it comes to planters these days.. soda bottles are my new best friends.. They come in different sizes and shapes.. varying from a tiny 250 ml bottles to comparatively big two or may be two and a half liter bottles..:)
I am not a big fan of “flowering” plants..Well almost all the plants flower.. But I am talking about growing the ornamental ones that are only planted for their flowering property.. Roses and hibiscus and all.. You get the point don’t you??

Any ways as of now I have a couple of potatoes, onion and garlic plants… The cherry tomatoes and green chillies are still sprouting in the paper cup seeding containers before i finally transfer them into the soda bottle planters..
I hit jack pot when a search for alternative/ up-cycled planters on Google took me to Pinterest.. I realized that anything and everything that could hold some soil in it could be used as a planter.. By anything I mean ANYTHING.. From books to bottles to shoes to bathtubs..

I am sharing some images that I found on the INTERNET here.. Just as an inspiration to all the plant lovers out there..
love,

Ch 🙂
