The Garden Journal : Lessons from Flowers

Image
The Sunflower They are the brilliant scene stealers of any garden. They also went through a lot of dirt first. “I don’t think there’s anything on this planet that more trumpets life than the sunflower. For me that’s because of the reason behind its name. Not because it looks like the sun but because it follows the sun. During the course of the day, the head tracks the journey of the sun across the sky. A satellite dish for sunshine. Wherever light is, no matter how weak, these flowers will find it. And that’s such an admirable thing. And such a lesson in life.” Helen Mirren #TheGardenJournal #Sunflower #PostMalone #helenmirren #TheReadingRoom #VictoryGarden #Gardening #Quote #songlyrics

Scene Stealer Sunflowers

Image
Look close to catch a glimpse of the sunny yellow petals behind the curtain of clenched leaves. Its almost show time. Gardening is truly a lesson in patience - plant, water, watch and wait. I was confident I’d wake up to at least one of these beauties in brilliant bloom but no, not today. I’ve decided that the attention-getting sunflowers are simply the garden show offs demanding to be seen. Theses towering divas are purposely making me wait and watch until they’re ready to make their entrance   Let the show begin. #TheGardenJournal #sunflowers #VictoryGarden #Flowers #Yellow #thewritingroom

Garden Journal : Lovely Lavender

Image
Ahhh... the calming scent of lavender. This is one of my very favorite scents. Lavender will soothe and calm nerves and has been used in herbal preparations to treat anxiety, depression, and sleeplessness for ages. Known for its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, it helps heal minor burns and bug bites. Ladder Coffee & Toast makes a remarkable Lavender Latte. Wild Sage American Bistro - Spokane Restaurant - Spokane Restaurant serves a lovely Lavender Butter. Clinkerdagger pours a Lavender Cosmo Side Hustle Syrups makes a Lemon-Lavender Simple Syrup to craft your own cocktails. Evening Light Lavender is next on my purple craze bucket list #lavender #gardenjournal #thewritingroom #garden
