:-) The Camellia tree was only spot of color last winter. I posted something almost every day.

Picked #RedWeigela #flowers & #roses to make small #fragrant #bouquet for Mom. The roses smell divine!

I got the vase for free. It's part of set of 3 glassblown art vases. Got them from a free pile from local estate clear out, a few years ago. I'm good at scoring lots of #freebies & rarely buy anything new.

Bouquet of red & deep pink roses with red weigela flowers in a green & white glassbown artisan vase.

Frugal is not the same thing as cheap. I'm very frugal with obtaining useful things & quite mindful about how I spend money. I won't buy things just because they're on sale - if it's not anything I need. I won't skimp on quality for some items but will look for things that are used before looking at anything new.

Frugality is a lifestyle for me. My parents taught me how to live frugally & with lower environmental, personal impact.

Life is all about our personal choices. I choose frugal living.

@msquebanh Getting only good things and only when needed has been nothing but wonderful for me.

It's a very different way of living.

But it also means that I'm not constantly throwing junk out.

When I throw something out a few months after buying it, it feels like I'm throwing cash into the bin.

Awful feeling.

I'll always try hard to avoid that.

My first white butterfly of the year.

Seems likely they are more "flighty" in the spring and early summer when the flowers are a bit sparser. But if you're patient you'll eventually come across one feeding calmly.

Thank you! That's very kind of you say.

I'm self-taught so it's been a marvelous learning process the past 3+ years. I'm just happy I get to share that experience with others who enjoy nature as much as I do.

Have a lovely day!

Well, the nasturtiums sure are happy with my neighbor's inability to adjust their sprinkler system! Living on overspray irrigation! #garden #flowers

@ai6yr
Do you eat your nasturtiums?

ai6yr,
@ai6yr@m.ai6yr.org avatar

@EugestShirley Yes! Though, it's tough to eat many of them fresh, like they recommend. I have been tossing them (cooked!) with eggs for breakfast, and that's pretty good. I suspect you could basically cook them like a leafy green.

"There’s [a] downside of resuming mowing after May. are... clever creatures that can learn where flowers are in their environment (your garden). This...is called “flower constancy”, & is critical to how & bumblebees survive. When the wild patches are cut...all the energy & effort the bees have put in to learning where to find these is wasted."

As ends, here’s why we should keep patches of lawn permanently wild

I have always fancied columbine. I'm a sucker for new varieties I see at nurseries. These and a couple of others have naturalized at my place.

Two showy purple flowers with yellow and violet cup-like centers, hanging downward, with green leaves in the background.
