One of my mother's favorite hobbies is gardening. She excels at it, indoor and outdoor. She remediates family members' plants, gives out clippings, offers advice to people just starting out in gardening or starting out with a new species. #BlackBotanistsWeek
She used to joke that she loves her plants more than her kids, because they don't talk back to her. Touché.

She was probably the first person to show me how to appreciate and take care of the land through gardening. #BlackBotanistsWeek
Yesterday was the last day of #blackbotanistsweek, so I wanted to make some portraits of my favorite of the #blackbotanists in the indoor garden she's worked on for nearly 30 years now.
Uh, in case this goes anymore viral, donate to @APTPaction:

Pay your land tax to Sogorea Te (if you're in the Bay):…

And follow my column @ozm, The Color of Climate, which is also about caring for the earth.…
Oh btw, my mom is a very offline person and is unlikely to do any blogs, video consults, IG live, etc. at the moment. She's close to retirement age, though, & maybe I could encourage her to after that.

She's super flattered by all of the attention and praise, though. Thanks ❤️.
