"Everyone talks about the uniqueness of each snowflake, but it becomes more evident when you can see it with your own eyes. I’ve enjoyed hunting snowflakes with my macro attachment the last couple winters. Even if you’re not into photographing them, I think it’s amazing to see the intricate designs in each one of these gems of creation. If you live in an area with snow, you should try snowflake hunting! It’s fun!" Thank you for your thoughts and this beautiful photo @aaronburden! 📸♥️ #repost#pixum
Yesterday I decided to prune back my rose bush as some of the bunches were getting old and withered. As I started pruning back and cutting off the bunches, the petals would just fall to the ground and some had even started falling before I had touched it... and then I heard the Holy Spirit whisper to me; “there’s beauty in seasons ending. It’s ok for beautiful things to have their time and season”. I’m reminded yet again how life is full of flourishing and pruning all at once. How there are miracles and mundane moments all around. It’s not always sunshine and there’s not always rain but we have Jesus always and he’s the one who never changes. Seasons do, but He doesn’t. #BlessTheLord#Seasons#RosePetals#LessonsFromTheGarden
You know that feeling when you wake up in early hours of the morning and you can feel that cold weather hitting your face, you can feel it when walking around your home, you can feel it on your skin and dry lips and you have you ensure your body is well moisturised and your are well hydrated all day! 🌱
That is exactly how your plants and soil feel too, the weather can keep them cool but they tend to get drier by the minute, the level of moisture reduces and needs to be replenished more often than usual. 🌱
How often do you water your plants during the dry season and harmattan season.
Twice a day?
During this season as a farmer or Gardener it is best to ensure your plants and the soil is kept well watered.
Keep an eye on your soil to gauge the level of dryness, watch your plants and check whether they end up looking burnt, dry or crispy by the end of the day, 🌱
Also ensure you protect your soil with mulch or woodchips as this ensures moisture is retained in the soil for a longer period.
Our advise? Water your plants at least twice a day.
In the morning and 2 hours before sunset or late afternoon.
Water mature plants when the heat of the day first subsides. This is about 2 hours before sunset, the soil warms up during the day and warms the cool water from the hose so it is more temperate by the time it reaches the plants roots, the roots will suffer less shock and the soil and plants have more time to absorb water during the cooler, less windy night.
Also plants do a significant amount of growing at night and this ensures they will have plenty of water to do so . By watering in the late afternoon, the water can percolate into the soil for 12 hours or more before the sun and wind reappear in strength, when they do, the soil will have a good reservoir of water from which the plants can draw before their next watering. 🌱

// Y O U // You see right through what I say and speak to the heart of who I really am.
When I get upset and say "Whatever, I don't care anymore." You speak to me and say "That's not true. Don't be silly. You're not done. That's not w h o y o u a r e ."
