Returning home one day, I saw a wagon-load of Asparagus densiflorus dumped in the pavement outside our building. A casualty of the annual landscaping, I could not bring myself to let them die.
They expressed their distaste for the painted KFC tubs that I had converted into pots by drying up, but I refused to give up on them. If what they craved was neglect, they got it- I watered them, but did little else.
They hated the monsoons, but thrived during winter. If the pigeons tried to convert them into nests, they fought back.
Last week they even flowered!!!
