I inherited my mother's African violets. For years she transplanted them for friends. They are all over the city. Since they are now my plants I have taken on that roll.

A lot of people are saying do things that bring you joy. It makes sense. Right? My friend's take (apologies now if I … Continue reading Bring me happiness – realistic?
This is a rant. I’m wondering if anyone else is bothered by it or is it just me “making too much of something". I take public transit. For me that is the bus.
