My 3 year old clematis on the fence finally bloomed.
The potted one by the front door was gorgeous as always, but needs a good pruning.
After nearly 10 years, the cold weather and a tree limb broke the large terra cotta pot that had been home to this Japanese maple. My neighbor helped me repot it.
And what to do with the very large shards?
Make a planter for some succulents, because everyone knows you can never have too many succulents...
We love Japanese maples around the cottage, so we have, um...seven. Here's a smaller one.
The journey is good.
I am remembering to smell the roses.
