My plants

Standard

My blogger friends post ,made me look for my successes in my indoor plant world.

I used to kill many plants before either water them too much or not enough.

I seem to have learned a bit.  Now I am more successful.

I do love my indoor plants and enjoy seeing them grow.

See how this plant grew since January

and now:

My Plumeria indoors loves the window:

My little fig tree is adding more

and another ficus plant has grown more than 10 cm.

I am overjoyed with my greenery

and enjoy every single leaf.

 

 

 

 

Hello October!

Standard

Welcome October !

An Autumn month with many beautiful colours.

The Motto for October is:

Smile

Every year, on the first Friday in October we celebrate World Smile Day® since 1999.

Do an act of kindness,

make someone smile today.

Make the whole world smile.

Even if you can’t see the smile wearing a mask,

your smile shines in your eyes.

Make October a Smile Month,

there is lots to smile about,

there is lots to be happy about.

Even in hard times

find the small things,

beautiful things,

things which mean a lot,

and make you smile.

“Because of your smile, you make life more beautiful.”

Thich Nhat Hanh

“When things are difficult, smile by faith.

Don’t wait until you feel better.”

 Joel Osteen

 

Wishing you an awesome October with many smiles!

Gooderstone Enchanted Garden and Oxburgh Hall – amazing gardens and walks

Standard

A trip to the Enchanted Water Garden in Gooderstone

We walked over all bridges and enjoyed the peaceful garden to the full with its’ colour

and smells.

 

Oxburgh Hall

At this time of year all gardens are so colourful and have such beauty.

We did the long walk through their forest which was so refreshing

and such a great walk watching many birds and small insects around us.

It leaves me breathless walking through.

 

Short Retreat

Standard

During this beautiful hot weather in Britain

I went for a short retreat

to Norfolk to Thetford Forest.

Our accommodation was very secluded, and really amazing.

 

So quiet and peaceful.

This is so recommendable, just relax and chill.

The Lynford Arboretum just next door,

perfect for our evening walks… trees everywhere.

We did lots of walking in the forest and at Lynford Waters.

At night. as there was no light pollution at all,

we even saw shooting Stars from the Perseid Meteor shower.

Even a short getaway is a great rest and energy giver.
