Hello friends, followers and visitors. I took a lil time off and visited a place called Los Angeles, California. Did you think I left you? Well I did not 😉. I’m back.
Now you all know how I like to play in dirt and watch things grow. Before I left town I bought a tray of beautiful flowers for my yard. To my disappointment I learned they are annuals and not perennials, meaning they will last for this season only; they won’t grow back next year.
What? They will die when the weather change? What???? They are shade lovers???. I find this out after I paid for them. $11 down the drain and the sunny spot in the yard is still an unfilled hole. So I took my begonias home and let them sit on the table for a few days. In the meantime I cleaned out the pantry.
To my shame and embarrassment I admit it: I am a pack rat. In the pantry was a dozen of empty coffee containers with their lid. I have no idea why I saved them. Maybe because they are red, maybe I thought they were cute, maybe originally I had a genuine use or purpose for them, but for whatever reason I had 12 small plastic containers with a black lid. So I used them to make lemonade!
I removed the label, punched four holes in the bottom and filled each container with soil and a begonia, watered them and left town. When I got back the tiny begonia had blossomed to this.
How do you like it? I love it!
I’m hoping my little begonias in an empty coffee container will live in my house during the winter. We shall see. The matching lid will serve as a coaster.
If you have solutions and secrets to healing share them with us. We all can use new ways to turn lemons into lemonade. Thank you for visiting me and remember: I appreciate your visit and all comments. 😃
