Updated roses page


I opened a ‘page’ a few days ago to share my roses, and just completed posting some more photos.

I will most certainly be updating their progress, growth, any new pots I select for them and of course any new roses I choose!

By the way…I was reading that egg shells and coffee grounds…also banana peels are very good and nutritious to feed roses and plants in the garden…even house plants.

I purchased Scott’s for my roses, and have Miracle Gro plant food to mix with water for my other plants….however…..I am now saving egg shells and coffee grounds to add to their soil along with water of course.  You can also if you hard boil eggs, use the water the eggs were boiled in to add to the mixture.  Just make sure you allow the water to cool!

Some people put the mixture into a blender then add to their pots or garden bed, or just use your mortar and pestle to grind down your egg shells to add to your coffee grounds and water if you have a small amount of plants to feed.

I am storing my egg shells and grounds in the fridge until I have a reasonable supply to feed.  The egg shells are being kept in water in a container….(if you choose just to use shells)…best way to keep them fresh.

Here is just one article to read about it but there are many articles on it just search it on Google.  I typed in egg shells and coffee grounds for plants and quite a bit came up.

Have a blessed and healthy weekend, remember today is Earth Day!


Wednesday evening with roses and fabric

This evening I created a new page for ‘Roses’.

I love roses and always wanted my own to care for and admire.

While gathering pictures to put into the page is a bit of work, I got the first two rose bushes posted, but have 10 more to post about.

I will be working a little bit at a time on that page as I can and too…posting updates to keep it current.

I plan to post additional pages of my potted plants, flowers and trees because I can keep them all right here on my blog and I may even be adding a recipe page and a craft page.

I do have a variety of interests and even so I am with my form of cancer; Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Stage 4, I still have my life to enjoy with what I enjoy.  It keeps me full of hope and keeps me positive!

Today was a great day…no appointments first of all, and secondly I went to the fabric store and purchased fabric to sew up new bedroom curtains for myself!

Currently there are drapes at the window and they must leave!  So they will come down along with the rod they are on…a new rod will go up along with the new curtains.

I also picked up a nifty little tool to help make hems much easier while turning over allowances and pressing.  I had three coupons, one for 40% off my fabric, one for 50% off my new nifty tool, and one for $10.00 off my order over a certain dollar amount.  So a good deal of savings as items you need or want can add up quickly.

Tomorrow I will wash my fabric up since it is an all cotton premium unbleached muslin fabric.  I wouldn’t want to sew them up and when they need to be laundered see them shrunk a couple of inches!  You should always wash, dry and press your fabrics anyway to remove residues from manufacturing, all of the hands that have touched or handled your fabrics.  The bolt my fabric came off on was a brand new, a never cut into bolt, but still many hands touch everything and you want your projects nice and clean and fresh.

So that is on my list of to do’s for Thursday along with a few other things.

I hope you had a lovely day, and had the time to do somethings you enjoy too.

Goodnight and sweet dreams!
