This little stem broke off a few days ago from a grocery store bouquet of flowers . I hated to see it go in the trash can. It seems to be thriving in a tiny crystal bowl with a bit of water. I was amazed to see it still looking so great today.

To all mom’s out there following my blog, let me be one of the first to wish you a blessed Mother’s Day.

May you always be resilient like this flower… blooming beautifully in midst of calm or chaos. As storms arise in your journey, may you be grateful for the rain to help the blooming flowers grow, and find sunshine to light your path.

Happy Mother’s Day!!!!

Gardening Guide May 4th-8th 2021

Gardening is the best “dirt therapy” AND you get tomatoes. For many gardeners, this is probably a very true statement…

Over the last few weeks, we have had numerous questions on when to plant tomatoes. Our standard answer has been when the fear of frost has passed.. usually sometime after Mother’s Day.

According to the almanac gardening guide, the best time to plant tomatoes is in the sign of cancer. The next cancer sign is May 14-16.

Check out the gardening guide for this week. Y’all will have a few good planting days ahead. The details are in today’s photos… have a great week in the garden 🪴 y’all !!!

Have a great week in the garden y’all!!!
