I like gardening very much. I am sure the gardening genes I have got are from my Grandfathers. They are excellent farmers with many acres of land cultivated with the main staple food - rice, and filled with many vegetables and flowers. They had wonderful homes ( My grandfather’s home now is more than 100 years old) with all varieties of plants and flowers - Jasmine, hibiscus, mums, roses - to name a few.
As a child, I remember being so enchanted with planting and growing. when I was 12 years old, on my way back to home from school, I spotted a red tropical hibiscus tree flowering profusely in someone’s garden. I stopped my bike, asked them if I could get a small branch so I can plant it in my garden. And I was very happy they gave it. I stuck it in a spot in our garden and it is still standing right there, a huge and healthy tree with lot of wonderful blooms. My dad and mom are proud of that. I used to remove weeds, helping my grandfather when he visted us. I planted a jasmine cutting that I got from somewhere and planted in a pot and now it is a 7-foot tall beauty with wonderful fragrant blooms. It might be silly, but I do talk to all my plants. I believe that thought is the most powerful way of communicating with other living beings, which has been many a times proved by yogis and saints of India. I believe that plants can hear me.
I love gardening very much, because through gardening, I can understand the thoughts and deeds of our Divine and Supreme Creator. In Sanskrit, one of the names that is given to God is "Vanamaali", which means, the one who wears the flowers of the garden - a Master Gardener, the one who wants every plant to live, provides all the necessary fertilizers (means), soil (circumstances), and necessary things to make them live. Above all, he loves even the ugly ones, the sick ones and the dying ones. So it is sure that the divine creator has put a gene in all of us to cultivate both our external and inner gardens of our heart.
Every being wants to be happy and I want my plants to be happy too!
So there I am, in Wisconsin, with my little garden "Amoeba" that includes 6 rose plants, daylilies, hostas and purple sage. I have obtained lot of seeds and plants that I am looking forward to plant in spring. I hope my first trade will be likely the fall of 2006.
Thanks for looking,
