エロいだろう? Erotic, isn't it?

2016.3.1
昨日、いつもの様にうちの近所の園芸店にでかけた。妻に頼まれたように犬のマックスのおやつを買ったところ、500円相当のクーポンが頂けた。このクーポンは会員へのサービスで合計10,000円の買い物毎に頂ける。植物にそんなにお金はかけていない。もっとも大きく寄与しているのは、その店がやっている月々のマックスのシャンプーだ。

Yesterday, I as usual visited a gardening shop near my house. As my wife had requested, I bought a snack for our dog Max, and was given a coupon worth 500 yen. The coupon is a gift as a member of the shop that spent every 10,000 yen in total. I don't spend much for plants. The largest contributions are monthly shampooing of Max that the shop also do as a business.

既にクーポンをもう一枚貰っていたので、一枚はその日に使わなくてはいけないと思った。
I had received another coupon before, so I thought I had to spend at least one of them on the day.

店の中を30分程歩きまわり、このエロデューム・ペラルゴニフローラムというのを見つけた。
Walking around in the shop for about thirty minutes, I found this "erodium pelargoniflorum".


可愛い花だ。
Pretty flowers.


第一にそのエロい名前が私を引き付けた。また、これはフウロソウの仲間なので冬も外で育てられる。そして、あまり手がかからない、というのは水をそれほど必要としないだろうから。注意しなくてはいけないのはできるだけ高温・高湿の場所に置かないこと。これは冬季成長の多肉と同じことだ。

First of all the erotic name really attracted me.  Also, it can grow in winter as it is in a group of Geranium. And, probably it would not require a lot of care because I believe it would not want much water. One thing I have to be careful is avoid putting them in hot and humid environment as much as I can that is same for most of winter growing succulents.

買う前からどこに植えるかも決めていた。家には何鉢かのニオイゼラニウムの鉢が有り、そいつらは高く伸び過ぎて根元が寂しくなる傾向がある。エロデュームは背が低いのでポットの用土を覆ってくれることだろう。

Before I bought them, I had already decided the places to plant them. I have several pots of scented geraniums at our garden that tend to grow too tall and the base of the plants look desolated. I was going to plant them there as the Erodium are low growing and I hoped they would cover the soil of the pots.



数カ月後には結果を見せられると思う。
I will show the result in a few months.
