this is now a gardening blog

Hey if you want to grow a veggie garden and want to repel insects without hurting the bees you can consider:

  • Flowers like marigolds and nasturtiums repel most insects.
  • Herbs like catnip and peppermint can also repel most insects. Do some research, there’s an herb for almost every bug.

  • Some natural insecticides don’t effect bees, like neem oil, bacillus thuringiensis kurstaki (usually just called btk but if you google that you get the serial killer), and certain insecticidal soaps.

  • And you can even do some googling and order live ladybugs or beneficial wasps to release into your garden.

It might seem like people pushing for less chemical use in home gardens are closely aligned with the ‘gmos will give you cancer’ crowd, but the problem with insecticides is not only do they kill the bees in your garden (which still adds up), but some of them, like neonicotinoids, can be carried back to the hive and kill the entire hive, and those numbers really add up. (Anecdote: It happened to a local bee keeper, entire hives of his just started dying in the middle of spring.) And please always carefully read the labels or ask around while shopping for any live plants, as harmful chemicals may have already been applied.

23/3/17 I’m working on a physical geography practical write up right now about glaciers and it’s really tricky because I’m not sure how I should be answering the questions! It’s due in at 2pm, and its 10am now so I’m going to knuckle down and get it done. I pressed a flower I picked the other week, and its sitting next to my thermos today. It has the quote that inspired the name for this blog on it! Yesterday I got a helix piercing and went and read the lord of the rings in the gardens, so it was a really nice day, but I didn’t get much work done! xxx emily

“Are we not gonna talk about the elephant in the room ?” - Batmom x Damian Wayne

A story I worked a lot on (my “main” Batmom origin story) got erased for NO reason from Tumblr, and I got so frustrated I decided to write some fluff. It’s shit fluff, but I needed it. So here, Batmom and Damian stealing elephants and shit, hope you’ll like it : 

(My Masterlist blog : https://www.tumblr.com/blog/ella-ravenwood-archives)

************

-So…Let me get this straight. You stole the entire circus’ zoo, because you thought the animals were being mistreated ? 

-We didn’t “thought” the animals were mistreated Bruce, they were. 

Bruce Wayne was rarely surprised in his life, being prepared for anything and all that crap…but right now, in front of his wife and son, and a garden full of a lot of different animals, he had to admit…he was a little bit stunned. 

Was that an elephant ? Oh yes, it was totally an elephant. An elephant who was caressing his wife with its trunk. Of course. Why not ?

Like he was actually hugging you with it, and you were totally ignoring it and were focused on telling something to him, even as the damn pachyderm was licking the back of your head. Was this real life ? 

Bruce, focused on the elephant hugging you with its trunk, and licking your head, didn’t listen to a word you were saying, and you noticed. With a smile you turned around and asked “Tiny” (of course the damn gigantic elephant would be call “Tiny”) to please leave you for a little while. The king of Africa didn’t argue, and went to play with your son and…Bruce was loosing it a bit. 

The Hell was going on ? With a voice that was way higher than his usual voice, he asks you, crossing his arms, trying to keep a little bit of dignity : 

-Ho…ho…How exactly did you achieve -he gestures to the bunch of animals in his garden- all that ? 

You smile, and approach him. You take his hands and sits him on a deck chair, brushing a few fingers lovingly on his cheek.

-Well, you see my Broosh, it all started when…

************

It all started when you saw a poster, taped clumsily on a wall in Gotham Central. It read : “The World’s greatest Circus” and had a picture of acrobats and multiple different animals on it. 

And the one that got your attention, was the elephant. 

He just seemed so sad, being forced on a giant bouncing ball to walk on…You were with Damian, having just picked him up from school when you saw it, and as he noticed the sorrow on your face he got worried : 

-Are you alright mother ? 

You smiled weakly at him and gestured to the circus’ poster. 

-Yes. It’s just…It makes me sad to see such wonderful creatures being used like that you know ? 

You could see the concentration on your son’s face, as he was staring at the poster…There was always a strong connection, between you and Damian. 

Even at the beginning, when he was trying to deny it, to push you away and refuse any motherly action from you toward him…There was something.

And one day, he just wasn’t able to resist that something anymore. 

Yes, there was a strong connection between the two of you since you first met, and you always seemed to understand each other without explaining much what you actually felt. And so, Damian knew what to do. 

-Let’s go free it. 

-Uh ? 

-Let’s go free it mom, bring him home ! 

-Damian, I’m not sure he’ll be much happy in Wayne Manor’s…

-No, I mean, home home. Africa ! 

It only took a few seconds of reflexion, and you were sold.

Do you have any advice for someone just starting to grow plants for the first time ever? I live on my own now and I finally can ^_^

I’m going to treat this as a distillation of dozens of similar asks I got so far, all of which I’ve been postponing, telling myself “gotta write horticulture 101 one of those days.” And of course it took me literally years to do it.

How about this one?

I feel so productive today and very proud of myself! I said I was going to go through at least 5-6 requests and I went through at least 5 requests and this sixth one isn’t really a request but something I have been working on last night and only just finished! I got distracted by baking today but I am happy with myself. Thank you for giving me a chance and thank you for following this blog!


Almost everyone knows about Damian’s unconditional love for animals. He is always seen taking his dog – Titus -, his cat – Alfred – and occasionally batcow out for walks. Yes, even the cow leaves the cave sometime. Though most of the time, batcow only ever goes as far as walking around the Garden because it is a little bit hard having to explain why he keeps a cow around as a pet. Even Goliath gets to leave every now and then but Goliath always manages to find his way home whenever he leaves so Damian doesn’t worry about him as much. But minor things aside, almost everyone in Gotham City and its neighboring cities know that Damian Wayne loves taking care of animals and appreciates the love he receives in return from the animals.

What they did not know is Damian’s love of saving and bringing stray animals back home. Not just stray animals he finds at the street but stray animals he manages to save while running about the city while doing his patrols or missions. You like to think that Gotham City will definitely see your little boy in a whole new light if they ever happen to stumble upon him in that particular situation. Though lately, this is starting to become a problem. You don’t even remember how many times you have to reject your son and made sure the strays he saved finds a good home instead. All you know at that moment is that Damian needs to stop bringing home strays.

You recall the moment where Damian had found a liger once.

(Damian wraps his arms around the little body in his cloak. The little liger had been one of the animals that had been experimented on when he had busted in to the research faculty earlier. Damian would have missed the liger entirely if his sharp ears had not caught the small mewl – the liger had been trapped in its cage under a few debris so it definitely had taken his father and him to remove those debris for Damian to rescue the liger.

“Do you think Mother would oppose to me adopting this liger?” Damian asks his father the moment Bruce parks the batmobile in the batcave.

Bruce looks at Damian before turning off the engine. He opens the door and steps out, causing Damian to follow suit. He is about to answer Damian’s question when he spies you sitting in front of the monitor. “Why don’t you ask your mother?” Bruce points you out and upon hearing your husband’s name, you turn around.

“Hi, love.” You greet your husband and son. Bruce gives you a small smile as he pads over to you, pressing a kiss on your temple. You look away from him to look at Damian who is looking at you guiltily. Your eyes land on his arms. “Dami, what do you have in your arms?” You ask him.

Instead of answering you, Damian pulls off the cloak, revealing the liger cub and you almost choke on your own saliva when your eyes fell on the hybrid. “Do you think we can keep him? He can keep batcow, Alfred and Titus company too!” He tells you excitedly and as much as you would love to agree to him, you definitely know you can’t keep the cub as a house-pet.

You reach to place your palm on your son’s cheek. “My sweet darling, you know as much as I do that ligers are not meant for being house-pet.” You glance at Bruce for help but Bruce merely pats your back and you resist rolling your eyes. He knows as much as you do that once you agree to Damian’s request, the next thing you know he will be bringing every single animal he can rescue.

Damian frowns and looks at the liger. The liger is currently resting in his arms and he really does not want to part with the cub – he thinks the liger would have been really good friends with Titus and Alfred. Goliath might think the liger as a plaything though and batcow might even be food material for the liger. “Tt.” He nods his head curtly and you rub your thumb over the apple of his cheek multiple times.

“Maybe we can go to the zoo this weekend?” You try to compromise and Damian ponders for a bit before nodding his head.).

Or that time when Damian had marched turkeys in to your backyard after a mission.

{“DAMIAN WAYNE WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THIS?” You exclaim, horrified over the state of your flower beds. The flowers you have worked hard, tending and watering are not no longer looking healthy and instead look like they have been stepped on multiple times. Which is most likely the case seeing as your son is still parading around playing the trumpet – when did he learn how to play the trumpet!? – and the moment he hears your loud, sharp voice, Damian freezes.

“Mother.” Damian greets you weakly and the turkeys start to peck him against causing Damian to chuckle as he tries to dodge their beaks. “Jerry, stop it – ha ha ha ha!”

You are torn between wanting to coo at how adorable your little bird is being but at the same time you are still torn up over your destroyed flowers. “My flowers, Damian.” You also cannot believe Damian even named one of the Turkeys.

Damian pulls himself away from the Turkeys. “My apologies, mother.” He grimaces at the sight of your beloved flowers. “Do you think we can keep the turkey though? As soon as I play the trumpet, they will start to listen.” Damian is about to blow the trumpet once more when you snatch it away from him, surprising him at your sleight of hands.

“No, Damian – we are going to return this to where they came from or so God help me.” You shake your head – you can’t imagine listening to the trumpet every single hour of the day. “Let’s go to the batcave.” You take a step forward but the Turkeys start to head towards you, wanting to peck you too so you throw the trumpet back at your son. “March your way to the batcave, Damian.”

“Alright, mother.”)

Or that time where Damian keeps saving all the stray cats and dogs he finds and nurses them to health.

(“How many has he nursed, Alfred?” You stand beside Alfred, looking out of the window. Damian is currently diligently putting on bandages on one of the injured dogs.

With a smile on his face, Alfred replies, “about forty, Madam.”

You almost choke on your saliva (again) and you cough a couple of times before staring at Alfred in disbelief. “F-forty!?”

“I have run out of patience to feel surprise at how many animals Master Damian have rescued and nursed, Madam. Do you think it is time to put a stop to it?” He glances at you and you sputter out something intangible before heading out of the dining room to go outside.

The moment Damian spies you, he grins brightly at you and your steps falter. Your resolve almost breaks by the time you finally approach him but the last time you gave in, Damian managed to keep Jerry the Turkey and that turkey still manages to ruin most of your flowers too.

“Where are you going to house any of these animals, love?” You ask as you drape your arm over his shoulders, pulling you to him. Damian leans against you momentarily before picking up one of the cutest cats of the bunch and all but shoves it up your face. You had to lean away just so Damian doesn’t hit you in the face with the cat.

“Can we at least keep one so Alfred the Cat has a companion?” Damian asks you with almost a pout on his face. You know he never begs you for anything so this is really a surprise for you. You glance at the several different dogs and cats around the backyard and you know for sure if you said yes to this cat, Damian’s going to want another companion for Titus too.

“Sorry, darling – how about we choose a shelter that you like and we can bring them there? You can always visit them.” You run your hand through Damian’s hair and he sighs before nodding his head.

“Tt.”)

Which brings you to your current predicament.

“Before you can even say ‘no’ mother, I have acquired this hedgehog from the shelter and –“

You had not even let Damian finish his sentence before you gently take the sleeping hedgehog from his hand and coo at the adorable little animal. Damian is staring at you in surprise – a little bit surprised that you would want a hedgehog instead of all the animals he had been trying to convince you to take. “This is so adorable, Damian. Have you named it? Is it a male or female?”

“Tt.” Damian smirks at your barrage of questions before answering all of them and he grins at you after that. “So this means we can keep it then?”

You glance at the hedgehog before looking at Damian and back at the hedgehog. “Your father told you I have always wanted a hedgehog didn’t he?” You ask him flatly and Damian grins wider. You roll your eyes but nod your head instead. “Okay, you have won me over.”

“Yes, thank you, Mother!”

I’d taken these photos at Lal Bagh ages ago but never quite got around to posting them. And what with all the shopping frenzy over the weekend, I thought it’d would be refreshing to gaze upon some greenery instead. The nursery at Lal Bagh is possibly my favourite place in Bangalore, and what with house hunting all throughout November I haven’t had the time to pop in there recently. Which makes me a bit sad! But I’m shifting to my lovely new place in a few days and I’m planning to do it up with all the plants, so I thought I’d share some indoor gardening tips I’ve picked up as a novice gardener this year.

1. Plants tend to be very attached to particular spots. It can take a bit of time to find the perfect spot for a plant, because different plants have different sunlight and temperature needs. So once you’ve found the right place for a plant, don’t move it around!

2. Most flowering plants need bright, direct sunlight. When I first got my Penta, I tried keeping it in front of a window thinking that would be sufficient. It wasn’t. As I discovered, the Penta only flowers when it gets the full blast of midday sunlight. I’ve recently had to shift it to the bottom of my balcony, where the light isn’t that strong, and while it’s giving out new leaves just fine, it’s not flowering as much. Flowers need light to grow!

3. Ferns - Ferns will not survive in air conditioning, so if you have an an aircon, don’t go for an indoor fern because it will die. Maidenhair ferns love all the sunlight they can get, Boston ferns like diffuse light. Both need copious amounts of water. I couldn’t rescue my Boston fern in time, but when my Maidenhair fern started dying dramatically in the AC, I put it in out in the balcony and since then it’s been growing at a prodigious rate. I mostly just dump a bottle of water every day on both my Maidenhair fern and Penta and they seem to like that a lot.

4. Monstera or Cheese Plant - This is the indoor plant you should go for if you have air conditioning. My Monstera has been thriving in my air conditioned room, unlike all the other plants (including succulents) which hated it. The only thing you have to be careful of with Monsteras is to never put them in direct sunlight. I put mine out for a few hours one day and it literally got cooked! It’s lost two of the most damaged leaves since then but grown two new ones in the cool of the AC. Monsteras are also super sensitive to over watering. I moisten the soil with a small splash of water every alternate day, which keeps it happy.

5. Repotting - This is a very helpful video with instructions for repotting plants, and the one I used the first time I repotted anything! Just remember to be extra gentle with your plants right after repotting, because it’s a bit of a traumatic event for them. I generally give my plants a little plant food after repotting to settle them down in their new home.

6. Plant food - Plant food is a real thing that actually works. You can get it at plant nurseries - it’s usually a NPK (Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium) fertilizer that comes as a water soluble powder or already dissolved in a liquid medium. I prefer the powdered variety mostly because a little goes a long way. You can even get different types of plant food with different proportions of NPK depending on whether you have flowering or leafy plants.

7. Pruning - All plants need to be pruned regularly. Pruning is nothing but cutting off old, withered leaves so that new ones have space to grow. Just don’t prune your plants for a couple of weeks after repotting, because that’s a very delicate time for them.

8. Drainage - Unless you have an air plant, always, always use planters with drainage holes. A lot of planters these days come without one because drainage holes leak water from the bottom and that can be messy. Without a drainage hole though, water will accumulate at the roots and cause them to rot, no matter how little you’re watering!  If you’re worried about making a mess while watering, get planters with a saucer at the bottom instead.

9. Succulents - All my succulents so far have died, and I’ve no idea what to do with them. I’m stumped. Do they like sunlight? Do they hate it? What about water? I couldn’t tell you because I simply don’t know. All I know is that lifestyle blogs promote them as super easy to maintain and that’s an outright lie. Succulents are not easy to maintain. They’re a mystery wrapped in a conundrum and I don’t recommend them for novice gardeners.

10. Plants are living creatures, but unlike animals, they have no way of telling you if they like their living conditions other than starting to die if the conditions aren’t optimal. Right now, houseplants are a super trendy thing and everyone wants them, but remember that plants are a responsibility and they will take up your time. Just like pets, plants need everyday care and nurturing, and if you aren’t up for that, don’t get a house plant because you’re going to feel sad when they wither and die. Conversely, a dying plant can be rescued if you can figure out the right conditions for it. I’m not trying bring everyone down here! But when I got my first plants, I’d no idea that I’d get this attached to them and end up putting in so much care and effort towards their wellbeing! They do have a way of snaking their little baby tendrils right into your heart.

Hypericum x moserianum, Hypericaceae

It’s such a grey and rainy day today here in Glasgow that I could only write about something big, bright and yellow, like the large blossoms of this ornamental variety of St. John’s-wort, whose parents are H. calycinum and H. patulum, both already quite showy. This clump-forming, perennial shrub is obviously a pleasure to look at (it might not actually give me sun endorphins, it’s as close as I can get), but by now you are probably aware the focus of my blog is more on learning to recognise species naturally occurring and with practical uses, especially edible ones with medicinal properties and those which is a good idea to have in your garden to attract wildlife and encourage biodiversity. So, although this variety is still quite beneficial to pollinators (it’s easy to see it covered in bumblebees when in full bloom, luckily it wasn’t turned into an inaccessible double-flowered/sterile, pointless creature), I will also write about the native species of Hypericum which you are most likely to encounter, as they are much more interesting and relevant in herbalism.

I don’t blog about politics and outrage on tumblr; I never have. I’m allergic to people saying reblog this right now or you are dead to me and the like. This is my little garden of happy, and I’m pretty ruthless about weeding things out to keep it that way, especially since I get overwhelmed by negativity and injustice easily, and I see it so often everywhere else.

Please don’t think this means I don’t care. I care deeply. A huge part of why I write is to, in some small way, talk about things that matter to me and, more importantly, spread a little hope where I can. (I don’t usually write unrelenting tragedy. I’ve got no problem looking into the very darkest corners and pushing people to their very edges, but I’m not into kicking people when they’re down. Hope matters, you know?)

So here’s the thing: I’m never going to be a real-life mom (by choice), but I am really content being a fandom mom. I may not be able to change the things that are hurting you, but if you never need a hug or an ear or a bit of a positivity or just someone to say, “Sweetheart, things are rough but you are valid and your experience is valid,” you can always send me an ask or a private message or an email and I’ll do my best to find a little time for you. (Asks I usually answer publicly. PMs and emails I obviously don’t :))

A lot of what’s happening on the world stage right now is about division and hate and turning people against one another. I’m not into that. It sounds hokey, maybe, but I believe in kindness and love, and I believe in watering a garden where those can grow.

There are a lot of beautiful, wonderful, loving, kind people here. They’re making and enjoying and talking about beautiful, wonderful things. This is a good garden. If you need me to come by with a watering can, just reach out, okay? Whatever unique, amazing plant you are, I’d like to see you (and even help you) grow.
