Gardening Blues

It’s been two months since I posted here. Unlike my main blog Dreams and Escapes, which I update almost  every day, I have neglected updating my other blogs. It is even harder now to post  since I am just using my tab. My PC  has completely given up on me, what a shame.

Yesterday, I started gardening again uprooting weeds, removing dried leaves , pruning  and doing the whole rigmarole of tending a garden. I was excited to finally transfer my blackberry seedlings  to the ground. I am wondering when it will bear fruits. A friend who gave the seeds to me said that it is not a high-maintenance plant. I also planted two onion bulbs in pots  and transferred a few shoots of pandan.

I finally learned taking shots of my garden blooms using my new camera and my tab instead of my Canon camera.

The joys of gardening – chasing thoughts in your head and listening to silent words while pulling a stubborn weed – priceless moments savouring the language  of silence.

About arlene

It's been some years since I started this blog. Supposedly, it was only to share my plight as a cancer patient and survivor but over the years it has somehow evolved into something personal about my life and my family. So really glad to have met you all wonderful people out there. Someone commented once that he liked the title of this blog, Dreams and Escapes. Dream on, there are more things in life than we really think. Be happy, you only live once. Sometimes you also need an escape from the vicissitudes of life and this blog helps me cope. Welcome. Feel free to leave your comments, I do welcome them.
