Tending to God’s earth garden is probably the closest we can come to the beginning of creation without having been there. I didn’t write that, I read it in a flyer for a workshop (about God’s garden). But I like it…a lot.
The texture on the first photo is part of a free package of 10 you can get from a nice guy, Jerry. My hibiscus did not do well over the winter here. Arizona has mild winters but we did hit freezing a few times. Although my hibiscus is in a pot close to my house, under an overhang, and was covered from top to bottom with a sheet on those cold nights, all of its leaves turned yellow and dropped off. It now has tons of new leaves and several blooms so I hope it pulls through.
