Welcome to my amateur science blog! Here you will find mostly Bits O' Botany, but also pictures of my cat Cake, other Bits O' Science, and other random things! You'll also find that I'm here to help and connect with not only other plant lovers, but anyone! Feel free to ask any questions, or just shoot me a message! Long days and pleasant nights, sai!
OK OK, not entirely white but … pretty darn close! These are the blooms from my newest borage to open; thus, this is from entirely different genetics than the previous one I’d been posting.
Borage is my favourite. It’s an excellent companion plant for strawberries, and it is 100% edible! The white colour is recessive and the blue/purple/pink is dominant; pink flowers can result in certain soil/light conditions on ‘blue’ plants [x, x].
We built a 2-metre high trellis on the cheap, with some fence posts and fencing wire. The structure functions as a “living wall,” allowing for shelter and shade, while still maintaining a little visibility from the patio.

This year, it is hosting Scarlet Runner Beans while the three grape vines get established. Carrots and strawberries are planted in among the beans, and little bird-feeders are suspended from the wires.
The grapes are “Brant,” “Madelaine Sylvaner,” and “Triomphe d’Alsace.” They all grow well in the UK, which usually means they will do fine here in Denmark.

girls who pretend to act stupid because they think it’s cute need to be taught that their thoughts and opinions matter. so many girls are taught that being smart and capable is threatening to boys and will scare them away. please don’t hit these girls with bricks thanks
