I've heard that removing the wilted flowers from a plant will provoke the growing of fresh flowers. I believe the process of culling the old blooms is called deadheading. As I have just planted some new flowers in our front garden, I decided to test this practice. So, at 9 am I made my way … Continue reading deadheading and a potential new friend
Spring 2021 is finally the season that I feel that I can start planting. I have done so much thinking and overthinking for the last few years, that I've decided to finally get things started. Last week, my cousin stopped by with bushes for my mom and this week I've decided to expand on that … Continue reading for the bees | a little garden 🪴🐝
I tend to put a lot of pressure on things that really don't require that much attention. It's a habit of mine that I've been trying to break for the longest time, but sometimes the bad habits win.

I want to have a … Continue reading just one day

I have found myself waking up at a decent time, and still remaining exhausted. I know that it is the effects … Continue reading musings on a backyard

Many of my days have been filled with work, lately. Long hours and lots of inside time. It's been … Continue reading a little calm and a lot of rain
Every year around the middle of April I start to take care of myself a little more. I begin focusing on the aspects of myself which I typically ignore throughout the rest of the year. Usually this means a haircut, painting my nails, and picking up a book or movie for myself. I attempt to … Continue reading a 2021 birthday
For many reasons and maybe none at all, I stepped back from my blog for a while....
