This weekend, I ran eight miles with MS (in training for the Baltimore 10 Miler that I really am regretting signing-up for because it’s got a reputation of being hard and hilly… and HOT) and then bought some vegetation. Proof:
Is vegetation the word I wanted to use? Would foliage have been a better word choice?
The top picture is cilantro… but not traditional cilantro… a different kind. I thought the farmer who sold it to me said it was “yellow cilantro,” but now I’m second guessing myself because I can’t google it. Does anyone know what kind of cilantro it is, based on the picture?
The bottom picture is, obviously, a rose bush. Isn’t it pretty? I needed something for the corner of my yard, and since I live in rat city and feral-cat heaven (I imagine), I am not totally excited by the prospect of tending to a full-out herb and vegetable garden only to have rats and cats call it home.
… and I just grossed myself out.
So instead, I planted a robust rose bush, accented with salvia, and one still-undetermined-species of cilantro, and I will distill all my nurturing tendencies unto them… until they die.
Then I’ll get a dog.
