The Willow Wand looks great in troughs, pots and containers. Like all container-grown plants, it is absolutely essential that the compost remains moist at all times, so it is a good idea to place the container in a saucer and always ensure that the saucer is holding water. Better still, install a trickle irrigation system.
After about 2-3 months the Wand will have established a root system so at this point, begin feeding with a general-purpose fertiliser.
I'm taking part in the #MakeupAndASmile compaign started by @LifeofLittleThings. The whole idea of the campaign is that looks can be deceiving, and how someone looks on the outside doesn't always reflect how they may be feeling.
This selfie was taken just before my Medical Society Ball, but also less than 24 hours after receiving my PoTS diagnosis. I was of course relieved to finally have an answer to my symptoms, but also in shock and terrified of what this meant for my future.
I took this photo primarily for my mum. After crying my eyes out to her the night before, I wanted her to see that I was "okay". I put on makeup, smiled for photos and ironically not long after had a "but you don't look sick" comment in response to explaining to a friend why I wasn't drinking alcohol.
There are thousands of people living with invisible illnesses, be it physical or mental. Looking well and being well are two very different things. I challenge all you lovely lot to get involved and post your #MakeupAndASmile photo and story 💕
Happy FriYAY everybody 🙌
Check out my first attempt at clay planters... about two weeks ago, one rainy Saturday, I went over to Roundhay to @sunkenstudioleeds to play with clay.
Rebecca was such a great host, friendly, encouraging and patient. It was a joy - learning about all the rolling, pressing, decorating techniques and not as easy as I’d imagined actually!! So here’s the finished result (there are two but this one I prefer). Maybe it’ll become home for a new succulent or maybe I’ll claim it as ‘my flat white cup.’ What do you think? 🌱☕️💫💫
Before my doctor got me on a good medication regimen, this is how I felt on the regular. Now I only feel like this sometimes, and honestly I’ll take it. I can now function, I get tired and feel like this more quickly than my peers, but being able to function close to a human level is not something to take for granted. #potssyndrome#POTS#kreativekraftbykelly#makeadonation#getacutebracelet
Feeling spoilt to get to spend time with Floof last weekend then the twins tonight. If I could add a Ronnie and Gracie into the mix it’d be perfect. Timing is excellent too given the roller coaster in my head right now. And apparently i’m the best story teller of the three little pigs, it gets more complicated each time and they currently live in treehouses with a lot of LEGO and left over cake and a knight bouncy castle in the back garden... can you guess what happened for the twins 5th birthday last weekend???? After teaching all day today it was risky saying yes to babysitting tonight but they were asleep an hour and a bit after I got there and then I just chilled on the couch and apart from an appt tomorrow I’ve got no other plans all weekend, and I have a soft spot for those two wee beans, and they always make me smile.
Part of the process in the Saggar Firing. Just took out from the kiln and start to add horsehair on it.
You can clearly see the mark of the copper wire, leaf, salt and steel wool. I ve add also cobalt oxide to get a nice light blue on it.
I hope you will enjoy watching this video.
Please tell me if you like the final stage and feel free to ask me any question.
Enjoy!!! It’s Friday!!!!! 🔥❤️
@the.ceramic.school work in progress with training! 💪🏻
