This year has been the first time I’ve ever kept an entire garden alive from start to finish. Every single year I plant with the best of intentions and then I try like hell to keep it alive and never succeed.
Well, until now that is.
So, since I’ve actually managed it, I want to really push the envelope and see if I can keep some of this alive through Winter too! My studio desk is HUGE, and I figure if I can move my printer somewhere else, I can keep some plants in there. *Hopefully* keep them alive AND have pretties to look at all winter long.
Today is all about digging in that dirt, and let me tell you – I did it. It’s 90 degrees today, I had dirt and sweat running down my arms, muddy hands and sweaty dirt-mud all over my face by the time it was through, but look what I have to show for it!:
There is loads of succulents, patchouli, lavender, aloe vera, rosemary, thyme and even a little marigold plant in there too. Eeee. So for today’s nudge from Effy, I guess you could say that I used to think I couldn’t garden – but now I can see it isn’t true. I totally can. Even if this might have been a little luck too.
Last night’s live went swimmingly — and I finished this little merlady in just over two hours. Some behind the scenes shots from last night:
My husband Frank helps me co-host every week, we drink a little adult beverages and he helps me entertain/keep track of bids and such. This time it was just us so I took him out afterwards for a piece of pie:
Now? Now I’m off to finish up some studio cleaning I didn’t get done yesterday and hopefully move some plants indoors. Until next time…
P.S. – This song is my jam right now…
