|The grassy looking seedlings right above this caption are Freesia alba. I cannot wait for these guys to pull through and bloom for me.|
|My single Espelette Pepper from last winter produced spice and plenty of fertile seeds!|
|Seeds: The ORIGINAL Earthmovers.|
(ASTHMA NOTE: You need neither wheezing nor a cough to have asthma though they are the most frequently listed symptoms. You can have a version similar to mine, where slowly, over time, your lungs swell.)
|Yes, I grow grass for our cats. Once you rip out the lawn you need to keep them from wandering over to the neighbors’ yards, right?|
With my health improving, I am finding that things are returning to normal, but I am significantly more tired from all of the recent garden and house activity. I just hope that my lack of energy and feeling better don’t combine to hurt the plants.
|Pregnant Hellebore bloom. I am waiting to harvest the seeds for my ETSY store. They seem to take forever.|
Tonight, after walking the garden circle around the house—just as I was about to enter back into the house by way of the side door—I noticed Mona the cat acting strangely. Staring down at a moving object walking quickly along the ground, she didn’t even notice me as I hurried over to watch with her. I was amazed to find this rather large ground beetle. Mona was surprised too to say the least!
In my own life and garden, I will accept that I am not always in control of anything, and that I cannot always do my best in either, and when the unexpected guest or surprise appears, I will stand near these things, watch their multiplicity, and I will take a deep breath to remind me how happy I am to be alive.
I will be the reed of grass humbly dancing in the wind—rather than the mighty oak that cannot withstand the barrage, falling to pieces.
So dance little seedlings and show me that you won’t break in the wind! How else will you begin to thrive if you cannot dance in the wind?
