What can we learn from nature, which places a great amount of hope in the fragile buds the produce flowers and leaves in spring?
What Occurred to Me When Pruning My Azalea
I didn’t have a blog post in mind when I decided to tackle my forlorn azalea bush but I don’t argue when the content comes of it’s own accord.
New for Fall!
There was nothing between winter and summer to spruce up our bland hallway door – our building is fairly new but the hallways look like hotels or dorm rooms with no carpets. Light green doors, door number, bell, bland hallways. I put a mat in front of the door but sometimes you just need a little bit more. It’s much nicer to come home to a little personalization.

I was determined that, before I went on my three week trip to visit my mother, that I was going to finish my summer wreath.
