Ta-DAAAA!!!!

Posted by Les Becker on May 8, 2018 in Gardening, Houseplants, Zenishness... |

The bloom on my Hoya (Star of David, Wax Flower) has opened up and completely gob-smacked me – how gorgeous is this flower?! This picture was taken on May 2, 2018, when I was getting pretty excited about this plant blooming! And here she is in all her glory! There’s a lovely, delicate scent to […]

The 2nd Floor Greenhouse Project – Days 2-3

Posted by Les Becker on May 7, 2018 in Balcony Greenhouse, DIY, Gardening, Projects, Zenishness... |

I worked at the greenhouse build in bits and bobs, about 45 minutes at a time over the last couple of days, and I’m pleased to say it’s nearly finished…. and I’m at a standstill because I”m out of plastic. I have also yet to come up with a door solution – lots of ideas, […]

A New Table to Sit At…

Posted by Les Becker on April 29, 2018 in The Landlady, Zenishness... |

I have kind of/sort of duplicated Ruby’s kitchen table, complete with space heater underneath, in my own small way. Ruby’s table was a safe space for me, and I miss it dreadfully. My table is much smaller, but I can feel her here in spirit, so I think it was a good idea, even if […]

I had no idea that my Wandering Jew (Spiderwort) was a flowering plant until I discovered this blossom today – a happy surprise!

Farm-Sitting Again…

Posted by Les Becker on April 13, 2018 in Fur-Babies, Zenishness... |

This is my favourite part of the walk with the dogs. We go out to run the fields twice a day, and this is the first section of our journey. It’s so peaceful through this trail, and I always find at least a shopping bag worth of pine and spruce cones. I’m glad to be […]

My Ivy Geranium (Geranium Ivy?) is flowering! These are such pretty plants! Soon, it will be warm enough for cuttings to go outside to climb the chain link fence in the parking lot…

Narnia at the Farm

  I’m sleeping with the dogs at the farm for the next 10 nights, and keeping the home fires burning for my brother. He has run away to Hawaii, the shit. After swearing at the coffee maker that I couldn’t get to “coffee” (again – this happened to me this past summer when I “farm-sat”, […]

A Long Time Coming…

Posted by Les Becker on December 6, 2017 in Gardening, Houseplants, Terry Becker, Zenishness... |

Terry’s Anthurium has bloomed for the first time since before he died. Kyla gave him this plant when she moved out a few years ago, and he doted on it like it was his child. I had been promising him that I would repot it for months before he got sick again, and I just […]

The (Only) 5 Fears We All Share…

Posted by Les Becker on September 30, 2014 in Real Life, Writing, Zenishness... |

Psychology Today posted a really interesting article that crunched all our phobias down into five big fears that all of us share. According to this article, you may not have arachnophobia – maybe you’re even amused at another person’s fear of spiders – but if the thought of being eaten by a bear keeps you […]
