House and Garden Poster 4

My favourite form of exercise is walking and I walk everyday. I walk in an open field surrounded by trees in different sizes. This is one of my favourite tree. I took a picture of it in one of my walks so I can use it as a background to another favourite poem of mine by Joyce Kilmer about a tree.

My Lucky Bamboo Plant Journal 4

Today my bamboo plant is 10weeks old and has undergone one cut in one of the stalks. So far nothing has changed, none of the stalks has turned yellow. The portion that is already brown has not gotten worst.  I watered it today because I think the last time I watered it was about 3 weeks ago. I hope it has stabilized and now used to the water I am using. The leaves are still green and growing with new leaves.Fingers crossed this plant will not give me a problem in the days ahead.

Succulent Bouquets

I thought I would make a bouquet or a bunch of succulents to put in a vase and let it just die on its own when the time came. I could not find a vase so I used jars instead. These bunches are now about 19 days old and they are still alive and green as ever and if you look closely, there are even new growths. A few leaves have dropped though. 

As usual, I will keep an eye on them and see until when they would last. I do change the water every two weeks and noticed a few root growths.
