I was not a plant person. But definitely not that I disliked them. I grew up among plants as my mom was very fond of gardening. We had more of fruits & vegetables than flower ones. Mangoes, chickoo, guava, rose apple, drumstick, coconut, breadfruit……. I would help mom to water.
This was in KREC campus (Now called as NITK campus). It was an independent house with space for gardening around the house.
Later I found my sister too is interested in gardening. Okay that leaves me out, but that’s okay with me.
As I told in my previous section, I would love to do things that I have not done before only to realize that I am loving every bit of it, to realize how much I love plants and trees.
God creates people like me too.
I have good qualities too. Yes definitely yes. I cannot be doing the same things again and again. So I have to adventure and my limit of adventure is not very extensive. One day as I was watching from my 5th floor window, I saw a big coconut tree sway to the wind and it was such a beautiful site.
I then made it a point to observe plants and trees and this amused me so much. This is how I started developing my interest in plants.
Now I stay in an apartment with very limited space for plants. But from one Tulasi I have promoted myself to 8 plants and I am loving it.
