Plant of the Day
Tuesday 28 March 2017

A bed of white flowered Daphne, possibly Daphne odora ‘Alba’, were scenting the air in the Osaka Castle Garden, Japan. These plants require a free draining soil and a cool, sheltered position. I also saw them for sale in the Osaka plant street market as root wrapped specimens - but I was realistic and purchased a lovely small handmade plant pot instead!

Always something to learn from a walk in the woods. Everything I’m seeing here is exactly the way it was last fall. Back then the bareness looked like an ending. Now, with the scent of spring in the air, it all feels fresh and brand new ;)
Same forest, different perspective.

[A/N] For when you miss those rainy days.

The rain is nice,
you try to convince yourself as you drum your fingers on the edge of the bench. The rain is nice. It smells clean and brings with it a refreshing breeze, filling the bus shelter with the scent of a crisp spring day. Maybe if you take a deep breath, you can pretend that you’re a tulip in the middle of an April shower. Maybe if you close your eyes and let your mind wander, it will feel something like getting hit by a playful ocean spray.

But you don’t. Instead you choose to glance at the glass wall on your left. It’s plastered with raindrops, some fat, some minuscule, all of them gliding down the glass in a race to drown the earth. There has always been something calming about the sight of it- raindrops, you discovered early on in your life, have a therapeutic quality to them- but today, you find yourself scowling savagely at the scene because no, the rain is not nice. It is not a spring day and there is no playful ocean. It’s almost winter and it’s fucking freezing. The rain is positively pouring down, your clothes are sticky from the droplets, and yet somehow, despite the miserable situation screaming at you otherwise, you’re still here on the bench after forty-five long minutes of waiting.

Forty. Five. Fucking. Minutes.

Plant herbs/flowers in empty eggshells (I don’t like to use eggs because I am vegan but you certainly can)🐣🌱

Make eggshell powder ⭐️

A/N: I know quite a few of you have been waiting for this for a long time. Well, here it is! I hope you prepare your hearts. *throws confetti* :D

“Uh-huh,” you hummed with your phone pressed between your ear and shoulder as your hands are busy jotting down coffee orders. Your feet quickly pace down the busy sidewalk, bumping shoulders with strangers who were on their way to work and school. You don’t even bother to look twice as you mumbled over the phone, trying to make out your own messy handwriting with a frown.

“Ah, remember to make two the lattes skinny lattes.” Joonmyeon sighs from the other side of the phone, “You know how some of the stylists can get when it’s not non-fat dairy- or whatever the hell is in those skinny lattes.”

You chuckle, “Remind me why you still insist on hiring those stylists when they’re nothing but gossiping drama queens?”

“Because they are the best in the industry and who can accommodate to my taste in style.” He groans, “Don’t you ever listen to me, child? We’ve been over this multiple times!”

“They’re worse than all the clienteles we’ve worked with. Let’s face it, Joonmyeon, you would’ve dropped them long ago if you had the guts to.” You shoved the notepad and pen into your purse, pacing over to the crowded crosswalk.
