Well, today is my birthday & though it’s not what it once was, there have been many positive wishes & kind gestures; one of the best treats on this snowy March day has been granted by my Goji Berry plant (Lycium barbarum). In January it looked dead due to being attacked by gnats or aphids that took me a couple of good, thick dustings of diatomaceous earth to kill off😫. Then my daughter took a pencil one day and cleaned off all the webs the pests had left behind & miraculously within a few days; leaves were growing back…..
and now it has blossomed💞🤗!!
I have now decided to keep this plant indoors for a few reasons: it was a beast to carry inside due to the size of the pot, it needs to be taken in half the year anyway because it is definitely too cold here to survive in the winter, & I can imagine, as it grows & sprawls, how amazing it will look in our dining room in front of the windows!!
I started some toothache plants to put in the house, as well. I should have done this sooner so I would have had one over the winter to make more tincture with. It’s my go-to for sore throats, acne, mouth sores, cold sores, and disinfecting.
Well, I’m 37 today and it’s pretty crazy how fast time can go. I played some board games with my son (Stratego & Scrabble as well as, dot-to-dot drawings), went out to lunch with family & friends, got many birthday wishes through texts & phone calls, & had an, overall; very relaxing day. Other than wiping the never ending poopy butt & having a hat fall in the toilet 🤣🤣🤣🤣. That’s a birthday as a mom with a toddler😲💞.
Sorry if this post comes up twice… Again, it appears, my phone posted it without my permission😖.
Love to you ALL💕🌻☮️☯️📚🌹🍵!!
