Saturday was one of those days you just want to forget because nothing is going right. From work, to interacting with people, to commuting, everything was just whack! I got home, and I just wanted to bury myself under the blankets for at least twenty-four hours. Alas, it was during the day, and sleeping with the sun up, is just hard for me. So, my mum dragged me out of the house and we went digging up the flower garden. There is nothing like sinking your fingers in dirt. Stress, all annoyed and disturbed thoughts just disappear. Our garden is right in front of the house, and the old flowers were getting boring. We decided to gut them out and decided to replant some new ones.
This is the garden after we were done planting the Aloe Vera and a pretty flower called Florentine Iris. It looks pretty puny right now, but the rains are here, and they’ll shoot up fast. The Florentine Iris is especially pretty when it grows flowers.
I can’t wait to see a garden full of these↑ flowers.
This little exercise had me forgetting the seriously disturbing events of my day. It was gardening for the soul, ^_^!
On a side note, this huge tree grows outside our house too. Every year, it gets these white flowers that bloom for like a day, before they fall down to the ground covering the whole area. Pretty isn’t it.
Song of the moment: Rita Ora – Grateful

I want your garden ☺. We have a great place too, but I have never thought of planting flowers and maybe after reading this I might give it a try.
Thank you Archie! You should plant some flowers, they’re great when they bloom, makes it all bright and stuff…hehe.
