Flower of the Day: March 23, 2021

“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.” ―Charles Dickens

Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!

      1. I’ve even planted them underneath a small ornamental tree that gives them shade, but they still faint and collapse, even watering them twice a day, so I had to finally give up on them.


      2. Well, that’s the story of my plant life. My plants start out well but sadly most of them faint, ready to collapse. I can start out with a perfectly healthy plant and kill it in a matter of weeks. I get scared when they look healthy, because I don’t know what’s going to happen to it soon.


      3. Ha ha – that’s why I have silk at the side/front of the house. You can’t tell unless you’re up close. When I retire, I would like to get back into gardening again.


      4. Yes, you can’t tell the difference unless up close. No weeding, deadheading, watering and I take large pipe cleaners (the extra-long variety that are used for crafts) and I use them to connect to the shepherd’s hook or wherever I have them sitting or hanging. This keeps them from being damaged during strong winds.


      5. Very nice! You’re making me want to get some of silk flowers to put the the empty pots outside. My gardening skills are zilch. All the plants that come under my care die within months. One living thing that has been thriving is our Betta fish: 3 years.
