This will be short because I have to be up an hour early in the morning.
I spent all day today repotting plants to put in the house over winter. A $20 plant stand from Amazon, and a $12 plant stand from home Depot, with a bit of furniture rearranging was all I needed. See pictures for results.
Also, Herky the dog drawing is nearly complete so I’m not going to post an update on it, I’ll post everything when it is complete.
I did however do a much smaller graphite drawing of a horse head for a client. She gave me a sizeable check partly out of kindness, but also because she wants me to draw a horse she fell in love with. The check was far too large for just one image like the Herky drawing, so I did a small horse head as an initial thank you. I’m supplying the drawing from yesterday and today with a thank you card explaining instructions on how to get the source image to me for the actual desired image.
So plants and furniture shifts first, then the drawing progression with image including source reference.
Both activities were much needed reprieve for my mind and they let me let go for a while.
May you have soothing moments and needed reprieve everytime life calls for it. May you find your inner voice and know your are supported. May you see your abilities as useful and wonderful and well received. Above all may you know the divine loves and supports you in all that you do.
2 nights ago we had a slight freeze. I had already started planting, so we covered all the gardens, even where they were mostly dirt. I didn’t want to take any chances. Luckily we were on top of that enough that only one plant was affected- 1 of 2 basil plants was frost bit enough it may not survive.
Otherwise everything survived and when we uncovered I was pleasantly surprised by more sprouts showing.
The pesky squirrels have eaten some of my bulbs, so I bought a just few more to start inside so I can fill in gaps as needed.
So far this is how things are coming along:
Existing plants coming back:
I’m so excited for all these beautiful plants I get to enjoy from previous owners and my therapist, but that’s not all!
The plants I started from seed and bulbs are sprouting! The darned squirrels got a few, but there’s still a lot coming up. Flowers and vegetables are all sprouting. I’m super excited. It may not look like much, just a lot of dirt, but if you look close you can see all the different sprouts. The baby plants, there’s lettuces, cabbage, onions, strawberry, and herbs (minus one frost-bit basil). I’m so excited to see things take off. I will have lots of pretty flowers and plants and almost as many edibles.
May you have exciting enjoyable sights. May your gardens and life sprout with all the good things. May beautiful things bless your experience. May you get to reap some benefits of those that came before you. May you have beautiful things that you didn’t have to work so hard for. May you get to enjoy nature and your life. May your days be blessed and fill of all kinds of beauty.
