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!
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.
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.
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.
Check out my panda plant, it’s finally got more growth spurts
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.
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.”
Have you ever been to a place where your heart feels at peace within yourself and the world, a place where the wind blows by and the water ripples, maybe your place isn’t like that but it still keeps you at peace with the world. A place to meditate a place to remember, a place to think.
Maybe you are like me who has a place where the water flows, the wildlife sing and the wing blows. A place where the world doesn’t feel against you.
I always found this place to be my go to when I needed time feel at peace with the world. I use to come here as a kid. I would also remember the time my step father drove away, I remember watching him drive away. I know that’s a bad memory, but i was down here to spend time by myself to listen to the wind, to be a kid and play in the park, I had friends who lived near here too.
But there is a time in our lives we were the happiest and a place and we end up re visiting to remember.
I’ve finally decided to grow avacodo plants. Yay. I’m finding this hobbie involves lots of patience which is so hard for me. I’ve been told 7 years to grow, that crazy but I want to achieve something.
My friend gave me an old milk bottle for my oldest plant.
Hey everyone, I haven’t posted in a few days but hope you are all doing well. Yesterday morning was quite eventful for me after one of my birds got out.
My Indian ringneck who I adopted two years ago got out. Took me two hours to get her pack, but she didn’t stop calling out to me one letting me know where she was.
It makes your heart beat when an animal is let loose. She’s been to the vet for check ups and wing trim because I just can’t bare to go through this again.
Do you believe in your third eye? Opening to the spirit world, allowing loved ones to communicate with you. Sometimes they send messages through dreams, smells, sound and even butterflies. I have been seeing Grandma herself as a spirit, where as I believe she has been sending messages to all of us.
After grandmas first husband passed away, my grandma met my grandfather, they became beat friends and lovers. Pa and grandma did some garden renovations to the house, they planted bottle brush trees at the front. I can’t say how many years ago this was. This week the bottle brush with white flowers has been covered in butterflies and bees, it’s amazing and can tell this brings so much joy to his heart ♥
