The Little Things in Life

Loving Husband has a green thumb and has kept our balcony plants alive without a whole lot of effort.

The above is a Butterfly Plant (oxalis triangularis) which he grew from a cutting kindly given by a colleague.  It has since flourished and flowered many times over.

The flowers are quite small so you’d have to look rather closely to appreciate its beauty & details.

What little things have surprised you lately?

  1. I am very familiar with the oxalis triangularis… we simply call it a purple shamrock here. This plant does well… not as well as it’s green cousin… oxalis regnelii … but both plants are fun to grow and fascinating to watch. I am always amazed at the tiny buds that grow into the flowers. I have a huge San Pedro Cereus cactus that is now over 12 feet high… and this year it has already had nearly 300 very large blooms… with flowers almost a foot in diameter. But they all start with a tiny bud about the size of beebee or a single piece of buckshot. “Little things” are amazing!

    I had breakfast with a friend from high school this morning.  It was a precious couple of hours catching up.

    Younger Daughter read her poetry last night at Playeum: Children’s Centre for Creativity.  Our Butterfly flexes her wings: a poet & advocate emerges.

    Explored  Chestnut Nature Park this week, a place I haven’t visited in many years: the joy of re-discovery!

    Sitting on the sofa, just musing.  Appreciating the little, and not so little, things!
