Restoration and Answered Prayers

Last week, I cleaned out the flower bed beside my side door. I felt so proud of myself because the bed looked like it could “breathe”…..until I looked and saw I had pulled off a caladium leaf. I was so sad! I waited soooooo long for my caladium to break ground and grow! I stood…

What’s Keeping You Grounded?

I have been asked a few times, “KP, how are staying sane (happy, straight, calm, making it, etc.) through these trying times.

Flower Sticks and Twist Ties 2

My gladiola blooming season has been poor this year, and I am not sure why. I had only seen two actual blooms so far and had told myself this was a slow year for me. We recently had a few days of straight rain, so I hadn't been looking after my flower beds. This morning,…
