“Well…” she looks away
Then she looks back to Silver
“I think… well… the lower level was a pony named Street Wise, but I don’t think it was him in charge. I think it was a pony named Bargain Strength.”
Silver files that information away for later.
"I wonder if other crews within Waterfront Gang know about what they did. They are rather well compartmentalized, to avoid one double-agent from compromising entire gang."
She shakes her head
“I don’t… I don’t know. I would rather it remain a secret, and they don’t know that I told you that.”
"Hmm. Alright then."
Silver looks around him at the garden.
"On different subject, can you tell me about garden?"
She looks down at the flower bushes. Bare of flowers and largely naked in the winter, they appear as messes of thorns.
"In my spare time, I like to tend to flowers. Keep them trimmed, and keep the weeds out."
"There is kirin mare I am living with who is trying to start her own garden at our house. Any tips I could pass on to her?"
She raises an eyebrow.
“‘Living with’? Is this Ash?”
Silver shakes his head.
"No, she is recent immigrant from Ngua Nam named Khoi Lua."
Spark has been gone a while, but hopefully I can catch up on everything I have to do soon and get back to playing.
“Oh, okay. So… what did you want to know?”
"Well, I suppose first is how we can get started. I also have question about Earth Pony Magic, if it is possible for pony with Earth Pony as parent to have it."
“If they are an earth pony, then yes, they should have it. As for how to get started on gardening, well, there’s almost too much to say. I would say you need to start with figuring out what it is you want to garden, and why you are gardening. After that, figure out where you are going to build your garden.”
"So...would it be possible for me
to have Earth Pony magic?"
“Every pony has their own magic.”
Silver smiles, evidently happy with that answer, and returns to the topic at hoof.
"I believe she wants spice and vegetable garden. She wants to plant some spices especially that come from her homeland. We live in coastal area so we built raised garden walls and are planning on filling it with more fertile soil than what is there in yard."
“Using a raised bed with transferred soil means you can make it just right, but be careful if what you use. Not too much manure, not too much clay or sand. Make sure the soil is neither too acidic nor too basic. And know what the plants you are planting need. Do they really grow in the climate of Baltimare? Do they need more water than what the rain provides? And what is the drainage like in your raider beds? What does it need to be? The answers can be different for different plants, so be careful of raising them in the same beds.”
"Hmm...there is lot to consider. When you learned how to garden, did you have any books to guide you?"
“Yes, there are books. I’m not sure I have any for those
kinds of plants, however.”
I am going to be tied up most of this week and the next, but maybe I can figure out how to get something done this weekend.
Everyone in this thread is a cute pony
I might just be able to make it tomorrow
Well, that didn’t work out. This weekend is going to be a bit less busy though.
I'm not a participant, but I enjoy this thread.
Come back soon poners.
Glad to hear you enjoy it. Life has been getting in the way, but we are still around.
“Well… there’s the ‘Encycolpedia of Gardening,’ by Tea Sander. Or ‘A History of Gardening in Equestria’ by Alice Amber. I like ‘A Book About Roses’,that’s it’s name, by Reynard Hole. I suppose if will depend on what sort of gardening you want to do, exactly. I like flowers, Roses in particular.”>>153085
Yay! A spectator!
"I suppose that is why you are here in flower garden as opposed to vegetable garden?"
“Well, yes. It’s a hobby of mine, really. Sister Leather Sickle knows more about Horticulture generally.”
"Huh. I did not know Sisters had hobbies."
“We don’t have a lot of free time, really.” She cuts a bush with pruning shears. “But what time we do have, we focus productively.”
Silver looks inquisitively at what she's doing as he asks his next question.
"I imagine...how did you and other Sisters here get into this line of...work, I suppose? Was it calling?"
“I don’t know if I’d go so far as to say it is the meaning of my cutie mark, but, we’ll, yes. You could say it is a calling. I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else.”
"It must be exhausting work, especially after War."
"There is not anything I could do, is there?"
“You’ve done so much already. We really can’t express enough how grateful we are.”
He smiles at Sister Marery.
"Thank you for all of your help. I need to check on my friend and make sure he is doing okay."
She looks up towards him.
“Very well. Nice to see you today.”
"As it was wonderful seeing you."
He bows to the nun, and returns to the orphanage building. Not knowing where Mala and Mint Marine are, he looks where Mint came from originally.
Perhaps I can make it tomorrow.
Best guess - back to the room>>153110
Then that is where Silver goes.
A rust brown colt sits outside of the room. Looking into the room - a larger room with multiple beds and a pile of objects on the floor by a bed - is Mint Marine standing with a book opened and propped up on the bed by magic, and Mala sitting in a somewhat awkward looking way, hunched over and looking at the book.
Silver looks at the rust-brown colt.
"Is something wrong, little one?"
The colt sits down, just out of line of sight from the bed at the end of the dorm hall, though he leans over to look in. His hindquarters are on the floor, and his hooves in front of him. His ears are down.
He raises his hoof, and points inside.
Silver looks over at Mint and Mala enjoying each other's company, and smiles warmly. He looks over at the colt again.
"What is so wrong with that?"
