These roses are fabulous. the beauty of nature
November came in with a blast of cool air that has turned downright cold. With a low of 27 forecasted for tonight, our roses are fading fast. Here are a few of the remaining blooms:
Pollinators busy working on a bloom of Moondance.
Artistry has such a beautiful color. Love the blooms of this rose
Pope John Paul II is a favorite in our garden. Beautiful form, tons of blooms and the sweetest fragrance.
It is true that you believe that punctuality is the supreme value and that everyone who is not punctual has an indelible stain on his or her character. This brings to mind the perception of the importance of time in our societies. If we did not count time, would there be utter chaos in our daily comings and goings? How did the first people live, with only day and night; no hours, minutes or seconds, just moments in time?
I believe that each person is the judge of how important time is to them. It, in fact, means that if you are on your own time and no one is waiting on you, that punctuality is not that important. How many times have peoples’ lives been spared because they were late? Do you think that that is an omen? Time is a man made device which was established as one of the bases for doing commerce. This is why it is critical to get to work early so that you can maximise your productive time. Also, why punch clocks, swipe cards and retina scans exist. The existence of electricity was also vital for commerce because without it, the differences in night and day would have been more marked.
There are persons who are so-called free spirits who do not follow the normal conventions. Is it possible that these persons have less stress in their lives? I accept that there are differences in the approach to life but honestly feel that there must be mutual respect for each other’s world view so as to avoid chaos and confusion.
Start your own vegetable garden today, even if you have only limited space. Plant, nourish and feel the excitement!
I am fortunate to have my own veg garden, within a stride or two of the kitchen door, with 5 large raised beds and a fruit area, but whatever you have, planning your crops and where they are going each year will give the best results.
We’ve grown our own for years and I love it – the complete thrill and rush of picking your own fresh veg, herbs and fruit for lunch, dinner, guests or just us, is very satisfying. My family benefit from home grown veg and fruit, I know exactly how its grown and it only travels the short distance up my garden from plot to table.
To keep your plot at its performing healthiest best, you’ll need to rotate your crops and the reasons for doing this are threefold – keep growing the same crop in the same place and the build up of potential soil borne…

My name is Heather and I live on the sunny island of Barbados. I started this blog to connect with other people on some of the areas which I am passionate about, namely, gardening, spiritual consciousness,staying healthy, how to save money and also how to work from home. I am a former civil servant and my goal is to make my living as a gardener and a writer. I chose to enrol in Blogging 101 so that I can get in the practice of writing frequently, make new friends who have similar interests and also because I expect that the course will be fun. I am looking forward to an interesting journey.
Eat healthy. Take your food straight from nature’s backdoor!
Everyone wants to know the secret to living longer. There’s no telling what exactly helps some people make it to 100, but healthy eating is one thing that sure does help.
Some foods, though, could actually hurt your chances of growing older by messing with components in your cells called telomeres. These little caps on the ends of your chromosomes are key for protecting DNA from damage—many experts compare them to the plastic tips on the end of shoelaces.

Thing is, as your cells replicate, telomeres get shorter over time, according to the University of Utah Health Sciences. As telomeres shorten it can trigger cells to malfunction and die, and shorter telomeres have been linked to conditions like cancer and cardiovascular disease. Research has also shown lifestyle factors including diet can speed up (or slow down) the shortening process, which is sometimes…
