It’ll Be Okay, and an Update.

Hi Lovelies,

Last week I mentioned that I’d soon be posting about how I grow ranunculus – it’s in the drafting phase. Instead, however, of finishing that post tonight – I needed some time to calm down.

I’ve been extremely busy in the garden transplanting things out of my containers and cramming plants into every possible space I can find in the yard.

If you’ve been hanging around my blog for any amount of time, you already know that my neighborhood sucks. In fact, I’ve even deleted a couple posts about it because the things that happen sound outlandish sometimes. Plus, I really don’t like to complain because the fact of the matter is that the world in general can be a really terrible place. Β The fact that I’m able to have a flower garden is a privilege in itself – for which I’m very thankful.

After finding something questionable in my flower bed while I was transplanting today, my anxiety went through the roof, and I just need to post some pictures to calm myself down. Thanks so much for your patience and support. The fact that you take the time to read these posts really means a lot to me. I hope you’re having a really wonderful day!

This ‘Rembrandt Mix” tulip is starting to grow on me. At first I didn’t really like them, but now I think they have a special flair that I’m really into. Sooo pretty.

A close-up of one of the double tulips that I didn’t order. I was originally kind of irritated that my order was wrong, but I started to really like these pink ones as they opened.
