Bucket full of #zinnias ready to go and see my favourite florist tomorrow. I've rather neglected my #flowerfarm lately, but a good going-through today yielded a nice little harvest. Still plenty of more zinnia buds to open, now we're just waiting for the weather to turn to wrap this season up at #maisondeshuppes#flowerfarm
Eloise turns 6 tomorrow. I’m in denial .. unsure of whether time is a thief or a gift. Both is the answer, I suppose. 6 years ago tonight I had no idea what I was made of - what I could accomplish.. how I would find out what my life was really going to be about. I always wanted to be a mama but I had no idea how much it would feed me. I didn’t know how tough or how soft I could be... our marriage had never seen anything like what this kind of sacrifice was like- one that can fulfill so much yet take so much at the same time. I didn’t know I’d soon be let in on little life secrets and play the role I was meant for.... my little Eloise girl flipped our life upside down in the absolute best of ways. She’s brain and beauty ... wit and whimsy... she’s so much me and so much not me. I love learning about the person she will become and helping her find her voice... she tests me, wears me down but opens my eyes and teaches me more about myself every day. Her little soul mirroring mine as we walk together. I hope she knows how loved she is and how her happiness is my happiness. 6!
Can you believe these Zinnias came back from last year and are thriving right now? They aren’t supposed to last more than one season, and they popped back up this year and have been beautiful for months! 🌼
The right environment really helps them grow. It takes the right soil, the right sun, the right temps, and a little bit of perseverance thru adversity for those seeds to sprout and keep growing.
We really aren’t that different from these flowers. Given the right circumstance, we can all grow and persevere and be beautiful. Given the wrong ones, not so much. Putting the right environment in place around us makes all the difference. 💞
Do you have the right environment around you? Are you surrounded with what helps you grow?
It took me a while, but I finally found the right environment and I’m learning to spread my wings and bloom too. 🐛➡️🦋 #bebeautifullyyou#beyourownkindofbeautiful#zinnias#fallflowers#holisticlifestyle
With the (welcome) dipping temps we spent the weekend bringing in potted plants (20+), cutting the last of the flowers in the garden and putting in storm windows. #autumnismyfavorite#dahlias#zinnias#corsiacanmint#roses Thanks to the heavy lifters!
