Field Of Happiness

When a sunflower has character , wearing his little hat and the hands as leaves. Way too cute.

Last week my friends and I came across a field of happiness. One of my friends confidently asked the farmer if we could take photos in his field. He kindly let us. Most of the flowers were facing the sun looking away from us, and some looked like characters with hats. Absolutely gorgeous!

Bees with love didn’t mind us being there. Covered in pollen they continued working as we took photos. “Be kind to the bees and they are kind to you,”, I always like to say.
The last three sunflower images were taken on my Canon 1100D camera.

Plant growth update

Started another avocado plant as I am in love with the one I started last year, and this little guy is rooting. It’s a slow process when you germinate it this way ,but I love doing. I had another new one but I gave it to a friend who wanted a challenge involving patience. With these little guys you need that!
“GROOT” … I started Groot about October 2020 and he is finally growing a branch. This is so exciting.
I decided to put my Monstera in a hanging pot in the bush house and she loves being out there. We have alot new growth, look at those baby leaves.
I took a clipping from my Monstera a couple of months ago and we finally have some roots. Will leave this one in water for a few more weeks and then will give her a pot.
The snake plants I propagated a while back have been quite successful and have some babies growing, so I have placed it in a bigger pot then what it was in for more room. This will look gorgeous when it full.
Started propagating some more but these will be going to a friend.

K is for Potassium

botany, diy, food, garden, mental health, nature, personal, plants

Looking at the periodic table the symbol K is for Potassium , a key element that majority of our Green plants love. To keep a plant bold and beautiful, it needs one of the key ingredients, Potassium.

Why else does your plant need Potassium?

🪴 Helps the chemical and metabolically process

🪴 Assists in photosynthesis

🪴 Generates chlorophyll

🪴 Regulated movement of water amongst cells

For the love of our plants babies, have you looked at your plants and asked them how they are, they may not talk back but they may have symptoms of a potassium deficiency.

A plant will tell you if needs potassium by;

🪴 You’re vegetables and fruits are not ripening.

🪴 The leaves at the bottom half of them plant are turning yellow

🪴 The growth of your plant have slowed or even stopped.

A way to feed your plant Potassium?

Avoiding chemical fertilisers, your plant will eat up the Potassium in banana peel. So rather than throwing out you banana peel , give it to your Potassium loving plants.

What can do you with banana peel?

🍌 Banana Peel Tea

🍌 Banana Peel powder

🍌 Compost it

🍌 Apply it directly into the soil by cutting it into pieces.

Do it Yourself – Banana Peel Tea

All you need is banana peel straight off your bananas, place that peel in a jar of water with a lid. Keep it in for 7 days. Remove the peel from the jar with the tea, and tip it at the base of your plant.

Key note

It depends on the plant on how much you need to feed it potassium, it also depends on the season and the environment your plant is living in.

Just a quick DIY

Beginner Plant Mum Update

Hey guys, so if you are following me for my plant mum journeys, I am a beginner, as you all know I’m wishing I paid more attention to plants when my grandmother was alive. However as I did not, I’m now learning on my own. (not completely on my own I do use social media platforms to learn off other plant parents)

In the image above you can well and truly see I have gotten into propagating, some plants you can do it in water and well other prefer the soil.

I’d like to thank the lovely Instagrammer below for giving me some advice. Attached is her Insta if you’d like to check it out.

Snake plants

A few months ago, I cut some snake plant leaves and placed them in glass jars. As you can see they were ready to pot in soil.

Check out my panda plant, it’s finally got more growth spurts

High Power

adventure., garden, journal, mental health, personal, plants

What makes you feel at peace? What do you feel connected to? What is your high power?

I’ve been wanting to make a post about what I believe is my higher power, what brings peace to my inner self. No, it’s not God, although I believe myself to be quite spiritual. My high power is known as nature. Our plants.

I honestly could not tell you the name of most plants or how to look after them but I can tell you that they make me feel grounded & connected. I can breathe more, I can smile and relax. I can think about my goals and remind myself of positive affirmations, to keep me going in life.

Near my house there is a nursery, on my days off I take go on my lonesome and sit within, with the plants.

“We plant a garden as we believe in tomorrow.

Cedar Creek

Spent my Saturday out with nature, out with friends exploring the world and embracing the beauty of Mother earth. For someone who struggles to have really good balance, walking through the bush walks was a bit of a struggle for me.
My friends son found a little turtle in the creek. What a wonderful experience for him and us. We put him back in the creek under a rock.
This was a bit tricky for someone with a phobia of falling.
