Flowers from paper
is probably more accurate.

This past winter Ruben’s work mailed a “thank you” letter to their customers. What was unusual was that the paper was impregnated with seeds and there were instructions to clip some of the paper and put it in a flowerpot, cover with soil, and add water as necessary.

You can see the instructions for planting on the left.

So I planted three flowerpots and after three months, this is what appeared.

Three months later

A variety of plants grew with some of the tiniest flowers that I have seen. Here are just two types:

Tiny white flowers

Tiny purple flowers

Those are cute... I am pleased that you love flowers and plants.

Gardening has long been one of my major passions, too!

I only have limited space for gardening on the terraza, but it keeps me busy. This year I have more plants for decoration rather than utility (citrus, strawberries, peppers, herbs.)

I thought it was interesting too. A bit unusual.
