Looking at this plant is like opening up floodgates of memories. This plant reminds me of my Nani's house in Joria Bazar and my choti Khala's gardening adventures. When my Khala found her love for plants, this plant was among the first plants she bought. This plant is still alive! (Thanks to my cousin, Khiz). It must be 20 years old! My favourite memory is of sitting with my nana aba for lunch and sprinting to the verandah to pick a green chilli for him. My Khala was able to grew chillies in pots at that time. 🌶
Another one is of listening to my Khala's tips on how to grow bitter gourd and how to look for the perfect seeds.🌱 Now that house doesn't exist. It hurts. 💔
But this plant is alive. (check pic 2). We have this joke that this plant will stay with us forever.
Plant lovers, you can't imagine your life without this plant !! It's not pricey (Rs 50 for a 4 inch pot) and it knows how to survive; it will grow taller and stronger faster if you set the plant in the ground otherwise a 20 inch pot would even do well though growth might dwindle over years. This plant also come in other shades (check pic 3) 🌿
Day 16 of Passion Project #1 (leaves from my neighborhood and beyond)
Goddess of Love Venus conjunct Blessing-giver Jupiter at 28 Sagittarius. Warrior Mars in Scorpio opposes Awakener Uranus in Taurus.
It's a dynamic weekend with the opportunity for recognising higher truth and finer connectivity through the grace of Venus/Jupiter meeting just emerging from the Galactic Centre. With Mercury now in supportive aspect to the Moon's Nodes also it's a potential first-phase harvest of what's been brewing through the recent deep dark Mercury Retrograde. Mystic Neptune station direct on 27th adding a big dose of soulfulness to this mix.
The power of Mars/Uranus opposition at the same time as Venus conjoins Jupiter delivers a powerfully direct energy adding surprises into this potent mix. Key focus: allow, open, receive what's coming in... with this opposition in fixed signs there may be a reaction to push or resist change, either forcing an agenda or trying to hang on to comfort zones. And yet the availability of ease, flow and grace is powerfully with us.
It's a weekend to give heartfelt thanks for life's natural always-available beneficence. To know, we only have to turn towards it consciously... And to recognise the flow of change is always with us.
