Decided to take another look at the balcony. It’s autumn. But some stuff is still there, second blooming of lavender, echium, sedum (fantastic autumn colors!)

The flowers themselves are also quite pretty, but I don't know their name.

the dream 

I try not to let myself think or say negative things about myself that aren't really true, I guess in fear that I'll start believing and accepting them and they'll become true, and I try to correct myself when I notice those thoughts. Apparently that behavior is so ingrained in me that I'll do it in a dream as well. 🤔

This is the Greek cyclamen, very beautiful in the wild, much more so than in a pot.

I had Saffron leaves. I don't think I'm getting any flowers this year. But the I am taking the fact that I have leaves coming up a 2nd year as a win, given how notoriously difficult Saffron is to grow. Maybe I'll get flowers and spice next year?

This miniature yellow flower appears to be growing out of the moss that is in with my . I had to use a real camera set on macro to photograph this, my camera was SOL.

It's important to have plants that still bloom in October. Lots of pollinators are still gathering nectar and pollen.

Our ivy is foll of flies and wasps and the Aster flowers are full of bees. They look and sound the same from afar.

Dish scrubber, version #2.

My first version was made from cotton yarn, and it was way too soft for washing dishes. It was however PERFECT for general cleaning, and I will make more of them for that purpose.

This version is made from linen yarn, and it was too stiff! It cleaned the dishes alright, but I have to see if using it will make it any softer...

I didn't know this one before: Flowering Stones from the botanical garden in Hamburg. Apparently they live natively in Southern Africa. #florespondence
