Growing, my joy!

Standard

My garden is my joy.

I love things growing and I take care of them.

I check how my plants grow.

We are lucky the weather is good and

I spend lots of time in the garden admiring my babies.

My Canna Lily, I received from a friend last year is coming again.

I check how my planted seeds grow.

I had Cornflower seeds,

they grow beautifully.

I tried seeds of radish,lettuce,

carrots and onions.

They are coming on fine.

It is such a success story.

Every little success is a feel good factor.

Don’t expect too much of yourself.

In the words of François and his yogi ladybird:

What is your success story for this week?

 

Take care my friends and stay safe.

 

 

More Updates

“We’re unable to go out, so many of us go in.

Sleep, recharge, pray, meditate, journal.

Reflect on what’s important and what makes us truly happy.

To many, it’s a transition from survival to living.

During times of pain, we are invited to learn new ways of being—to do less and be more.

To reconnect with our true human nature.”

~Sara Fabian

 

Here is what I have been doing last week:

completed another puzzle:

Sorted out all my CD’s,

Created a Mini Green house out of CD cases, to recycle them

as I found a picture on Pinterest.

I can open the roof as seen on the bottom right picture.

 

Baked Chocolate Brownie as per Sally’s recipe.

They are super delicious.

Write in my Gratitude journal from Francois.

It brings me so much joy.

Here is the link for the new one, he just created.

 

Painted some walls to the Bathroom

and exercised/ danced, meditated, read books and much more

I leave you with an upbeat song I dance to,

Dance along with me and have a good and safe week ♥♥♥

 

Garden Art

Standard

During my visit in my garden – Mini Kew

I didn’t show you all my handmade art

which makes my garden more colourful.

Different Wind chimes, made with beads

made with shells

more beads

Brush lettering on wood

These give me smiles and happiness in my garden.

I am so grateful to have such a wonderful oasis,

to have nature so close to me.

 

Wishing you all a good and safe weekend ♥

Kew Garden at home

Standard

Kew Gardens is closed.

So I look around and

look:

I found my own ‘Kew’ Gardens right here:

When you enter you find beautiful colours and shapes:

Following through there is the palm garden with

3 different palm ‘trees’

Continuing the path you see different greens

Then we come to the Bonsai Trees Section, there is a Chestnut and a Maw Bonsai in the making.

And finally to the Alpine house, where we find this:

I hope you enjoyed the tour through Ute’s Kew.

 

Wishing you a blessed Easter weekend!

Keep the distance and stay healthy!

Colour splash

Standard

A neighbour of mine has a hedge of ‘Red Tip Photonia’

Now is the time where it really grows.

It grows with very vibrant red leaves,

they shine beautifully in the sun.

If you truly love nature,

you will find beauty everywhere.

Vincent van Gogh.

A welcome beauty right now.

Find positive things,

see the good, see the beauty.

It is a challenging time.

Be well friends ♥

Relax in the sun

Standard

While the sun is shining and mum is still working,

I am going to do a short post for my feline and non feline friends.

I found some lovely new spots to relax.

The sun comes in through the window,

a perfect spot on the table,

I always have to keep moving though to keep up with the sun.

I found mum’s big beanbag, what a wonderful cosy spot.

and the sun gets there too.

This is the life.

I do get out more as it is warmer and sunnier.

As it is rather quiet outside,

so I do get my cuddles inside.

I think they are happy to cuddle me,

as they can’t cuddle or hug anyone else presently,

so I get even more. Yay

 

Hope you all stay safe!

We can get over this together,

doing the right thing!

Please look after yourself!

 

Spring begins

Standard

According to my calendar,

today 20th March is Spring Begin!

Plants are growing,

the sun is shining, well sometimes.

My little fig tree is growing beautifully.

Daffodils still bright and happy.

and the beautiful blossom on the trees really shows it’s Spring.

♥♥♥

Look around you and find things that can uplift you.

Smile at them.

We need it right now.

Best wishes to all wherever you are.

Stay safe and keep healthy!
