I love the cute little potted gardens popping up around every corner in Tokyo. Don't you?
My mum has the sweetest little veggie patch at her home complete with tomatoes, strawberries, two types of cucumbers and a selection of herbs. I, on the other hand, have a collection of dead and half dying plants left over from the time I went out and spent $250 at the nursery in attempt to create my own Tokyo potted garden.
Today my mum visited and set about sharing some of her gardening tips with me. Together we took cuttings from some of the more alive looking plants and planted them in the unhappiest looking pots. Later my boyfriend came along with the watering can. If in time, we have successfully raised these cuttings, I will secretly know it was because of the love and care from the three of us. Fingers crossed!
