Angelique tulips!!


I have not had much experience with gardening till I bought this land and started giving it a try. Things I have learned,

Don’t take clumps of flowers from anyone unless they are good with weeding. My mother in law has given me lots of plants and while I appreciate it I also have learned with flowers come weeds!! I have two different kinds that came from her garden that have totally taken over!!!

Don’t make multiple gardens unless you are prepared to take care of them all!!!

Use lots of mulch!

Starting from seeds is hard, bulbs on the other hand are pretty simple

Diaper rose


Started with the diapers, putting a corner up and a piece of tulle in front, keep putting diapers around till you can’t hold anymore, then put an elastic.
Once you have a nice looking center with the corners up and tulle showing for color, put on a bigger elastic or type with string.
Pull out the tulle to a long piece, it sticks to the diapers, with another on top, then place your center on , holding the piece of tulle and roll, then the tight.
Do as many lines as diapers as you need.
I placed it inside the nursing pillow and folded down the outside edge.

Like the New England weather


Sitting here I see it’s snowing, April 17 and it’s snowing. It doesn’t last long and the next thing you know the sun is out, but look out back and the clouds are black as night. The instant change , the difference so close but yet just a turn and it’s different again.

This is me, on one side I am bright and sunny, eager to live, wanting to get out and be in life, be healthy and active, but I don’t , I sit and watch, not sunny but not raining or snowing, just being. I want to start living life instead of just surviving.

I can do that easily enough when my husband is home but he works long hours and then has to sleep, so it’s not always possible for him to be with me. I have few friends and they are like I have been, stay home and watch life passing by. I don’t want to do that anymore, I need to be active and healthy, I want too, but how ?

Join a club, volunteer some place, meet new people, easier said than done.

So I sit, as it’s sunny and bright out one door but gloomy and cloudy out another, yet still, raining on one side.
