One day in the life of a germ
Starting a story is easy, but it has its consequences, especially when the story is about life that just germinated. In the previous post I showed a photo of a germ whose head was still in earth,
overnight it has risen,
still bearing some dirt from the soil on it.
First it was bowed the old way,
but after a couple of day hours it took another bow, towards the window.
There was no sun outside, but snow gave enough light to attract the young plant, soon its leaves touched the window glass. Admire the turn, I do.
…caused a power outage, so I had to help myself with the good old fireplace…
But now power is again on so I can post this follow-up of the story about one day in a life of the castor-oil plant. As such it is two days old.
And, did you notice in one of the photos another plant in the background? A one-year old oak tree, that has planted itself at the time the pot was outside. The acorn must have wandered from my garden’s only oak tree, that is BTW as many years old as my family’s owning this place. Not so long, since 1966.
