Enigmatic Postcard

One of my favorite things in the whole world is receiving mail.

Not bills or ads.

Anything that is personal.

Someone being thoughtful.

A couple of days ago my roomie brought in this little number!

Have any of you wise and wonderful beings seen these?

Neat and sweet.

Just a matter of One, Two, Three, wait and see.

And I received this from mi Madre! I’m enjoying all the thoughtful mail sent gifts.

Read up on these babies. Contender Beans poppin’ up every where.

I can’t wait to use them in a home cooked stirfry.

Our elephants are looking awesome! I love the trunk flowers.

There is so many sprouts growing up. Everyday I learn something new about my plants. The book mi Madre sent has been a great teacher for growing my plants in their ideal environments. The weather is not predictable but what I do can be.

HAPPY GARDENING FELLOW GREEN THUMBS!

Good Morning Life

Good Morning Life

Everyday is a new joy to wake up to.

It’s so therapeutic to roll out of bed to wander outside to a heart stopping green world I can call my own.

My Sanctuary.

The grass is greener here.

The packet called them Contenders.

 These cute bushy babies had lovely purple flowers but it was like magic the string of beans appeared!

This Green Bell has gifted us with 4 amazing peppers before we get to enjoy these.

It is also one of my absolute favorite plants to photograph.

Like most of my plants I was so excited to grow them I didn’t take the time to research them as I should.

As you can see, the mint is now growing into the Jalapenos since I did not plant it with a container.

Lesson learned but I am still excited to see where this yummy smelling plant ventures.

Mini Okra Forest.

Cuties.

Bob the Basil is the Original Gangsta here.

My favorite Christmas gift I have ever received.

He’s a gift who just keeps giving.

I can never seem to get over how amazing it is to walk out back and stick my toes in the water for the koi to nibble on.

My life is truly a dreamland of enthralling nature that teaches and inspires my soul.

What gave you joy this morning?

The Elephant in the Room

Everyday there is a new chance to create something fun that makes you smile.

Arts and Crafts have taken over this house.

Here is my roomies idea of using his old laundry detergent bottles.

This is mine.

He’s a nerd .

We planted some african daisies, a yellow flower I cannot pronounce and poppies.

He is my roomies.

Simply adorable.

My friend Toasty passed on this Eggcellent use of eggshells.

The seedlings are loving it!!

Teacup Poppy .

I didn’t realize how many attempts it would take to grow cilantro from seeds.

They love the sun but my garage operation for seedling growth is their most successful spot.

Some serious cilantro now!

Four different kinds of lettuce loving the sunlight.

A little update on the seed operation.

It makes the garage one of my favorite sitting spots.

A place of Peace, Joy and Life.

Incredible Edibles To Be …

I have really come to love planting seeds.

The satisfaction of living green things growing from a dormant state and me not killing them is as I repeat, a great satisfaction.

I have been going to walmart and dollar stores for those 20 cent seed packets.

They grow beautifully.

There is Romaine,

Cabbage,

Simpson Lettuce

and another leafy lettuce I lost the packet for.

Carrots!

Those Delicious Roma Tomatoes !

I can’t wait to have these in some homemade stir fry!

.Sugar Snap Peas.

Grocery store avocado finally doing something…

Garden Creatures

Beautiful Butterfly Buddies

Not sure what kind they are.

this guy I apparently should have smushed … :/

Snapshots in Another’s Sanctuary

I adore the garden our wonderful little household has created. It’s beautiful and life-giving. But what else I love is the inspirations of another’s wonderland. Here’s a few captured moments of my morning in my friends’ garden …

I love this pineapple!

Bloomin’ Beauties 

Just enchanting.

purple is my all time favorite.

so majestic.

I love the shade of pink,

or is it red.

clusters of pretty-ness!

Mini Jungle of Veg

They have a few of these pumpkins!

I can’t wait for ours to get that far along.

Hot Banana Peppers swishing in the breeze.

I believe these are another pepper, not sure if they’re Jalapenos though.

Cherry Tomatos !

I think these were the Yummy Bells.

Koi Fish and Turtles!

First time I got see them!

I hope you enjoy these joys I got to see this morning as much as I have.

Mint to Live in Sweet Prosperity

NEW LOVE

I am obsessed with any normal plant thriving in water alone. 

I think it is absolutely enthralling. 

Maybe its the chance to watch the roots grow.

Or maybe it is the fact that our aquatic transplants are growing better then their earth-bound friends.

Awesome Sweet Corn…

Incredible Sweet Corn…

Salvaged Shame

We originally left our broccoli plant to return to the earth.

But he stayed green long enough we have decided to see if it’s possible to save him.

So far so good…

Stare closely.

You can see the hairs of roots beginning.

It was just a sad rootless stalk before this fish tank transfer.

Cloning

I really like the idea of growing plants from clippings.

So I tried with a number of plants at the house but the only one I put in water was the Sweet Mint that has now take root.
