2020 too

Will 2022, become 2020 too? Let’s hope that 2022 brings about all good changes from 2020. Better health and a better understanding of how to achieve that in the age of Covid 19! And more acceptance of other points of view. There is no way to achieve that if we do not listen to one another. Listen with compassion in hopes of understanding.

More time in the garden, because that is where you can find deep satisfaction, alone with your thoughts in the solace of the natural world. This is what is happening in our garden. This is where solace awaits.

Trough at Christmas

The trough is quite lush right now. This will most likely need to be divided in Spring.


The parsley by the back door has revived with warm temperatures.

Queen’s Tears or Billbergia nutans

The original Mother plant was given to me by my son and daughter in law when they first visited us in Georgia. It is now divided and I have several. It is always exciting to see it bloom, and makes me think of them…miss them, so far away.

Camellia from seed

This camellia bud is beyond thrilling. Why? Because when Hurricane Matthew struck Savannah, we evacuated to Augusta GA, and spent a day visiting Aiken SC. While there, walking through a public garden, I picked up a camellia seed pod, and planted it when we got home. I now have three camellias growing from that attempt. This plant is still in its pot. The other two I planted in the ground have not set bud. So perhaps the lesson is to keep young plants in a pot longer. Anyway, I am so excited to see what the bloom will be! Since camellias do not always grow true to seed, it will be a surprise!


The camellias are out in full force in my neighborhood. The combination of camellias flowering among the Spanish Moss draped from towering live oaks is a sight that never fails to take my breath away.

I didn’t make the Saturday deadline for The Propagators blog this week, but I resolve in 2022, to live life at my own pace, so deadlines need not stress me. Let’s see how long that lasts! In the meantime, visit him, he is very good with deadlines! http://thepropagatorsblog.com
