The other day hubby told me, “the ginger is going to flower soon”, to which I replied something in the lines of, “oh yeah?”. I was probably busy or tired, or a combination of both. This morning as I was doing a little tour of the garden, checking on the plants with the three little men in tow (baby is walking now, too), I saw this:
How couldn’t I have reacted with a little more excitement the other day!?! This is waaay beyond super duper tropical cool!!!
Also, I asked my local FB friends where was the Wednesday market. You see, there is a market in town in a different place everyday of the week except Monday. Going to the market here is the best way to save money on fresh produce. The problem is that up until recently I was only going during the weekend because it’s close to home, but by the middle of the week we had nothing fresh at home anymore. It was getting on my nerves. So after a quick question answered by my local FB friends, off I went to the market on Wednesday a few weeks ago. It’s actually not so far from home either, but I need to take the bike if I don’t want to come back home to three famished and crying children. 😉 The other great thing about this particular market is that there are always 3 or 4 different plant sellers! I like this, very, very much.
Why was I telling all this?
Oh yeah. That’s why:
I had never seen one of this color before! It is now (hopefully) happily growing in the garden. And when we move from here, I’ll take this plant or its offspring with me!
