My almond tree- 20th November 2013

Today I planted a badaam (almond) tree in my apartment and feel elated about that. It is in fact a transplantation from a pot. I was associated with this plant for a long time, even before it came to the mother earth. I mean I took it when it was inside a fruit. Few months ago in a fine morning when I was walking in the apartment garden I saw a lovely fully ripe healthy and colorful almond fruit and took it home. In one of the pots where I grow flower plants I digged it down and forgot nearly for a month. After nearly 40 days as a surprise, the germination took place and a small plant came out with two thick curly leaves . I was so happy when I came to know that it was the fruit I digged inside the pot a month ago. It was like seeing a new born baby which has not even opened its eyes . The leaves of the fresh green plant, to me were like folded fingers of a new born baby. 

Then the plant was allowed to grow in the pot itself for around threemonths. There was an urge in me, recently, that I should transfer this from the pot to the ground at the earliest before the plant grows out of proportion to the small pot . The opportunity came today, when the ground is wet after the two days heavy rain. You can see the previous house of the plant in the first photo and the tool that transferred the plant to the ground. I did everything on my own without the help of any gardner and that is why I am so happy. I am sure that this happiness will keep me excited for a week.

I planted this in a place where I can see this from my balcony and monitor its growth on a daily basis . The last photo shows the view of my lovely plant from my balcony. i will keep you posted about its growth after 3 months.
