The winter can be so unforgiving

Last year, I dug out a garden plot for my mother and filled it up with plants that were supposedly able to survive the winter, but sadly only one of  them did.. We had to fill it up with new plants instead, including one of my succulents. I don’t know if it will survive outside, but it has outgrown all of my pots and planters so I didn’t really have any other options left. I’ve had it for years though so it’s no wonder that it has grown to be so big, it keeps getting new sprouts that I remove and plant on their own.

I really wonder why most of the plants didn’t survive when they very specifically chose them for me at the garden center I went to, I even emphasized that they HAD to be hardy plants. I guess it’s too late to complain now, but at least the prettiest one survived (the green sprout in the upper left corner). Hopefully the snails won’t eat everything in the little garden plot this year. We put out three traps for them so hopefully they’ll go for that and not the new plants. Do you do any gardening?

April 2018 summary

Some things I have been loving this month, which includes

nothing,nowhere

I fell fast and quite hard a few months back and it has been a constant love since then. Got concert tickets booked for October, looking forward to that. His new album dropped in the middle of April and it’s great. This still remains one of my favorites though, from his first album.

 

The Bioshock series

Been playing through Bioshock 1, most of Bioshock 2.. I say most because towards the very end the game kept glitching and crashing and it was literally unplayable.. Then I started Bioshock Infinite and I’m a couple of hours into that one. They’re quite interesting, and they really make me question our reality and what our world will evolve into in the future. Though I would not recommend the games if you can’t handle jumpscares, or little girls. It is quite creepy indeed.

 

My new succulents

They’re quite adorable! And they were quite expensive but I was in dire need of new plants because most of mine had gotten so old and just couldn’t go on anymore. They all fit nicely in my window sill and I look forward to watching them grow.

I’ve been trying to read more but I’m in a real slump still.. I’ve probably read about four chapters of a book and that’s it for April. it really sucks, I hope I want to read again soon because I miss it a lot.

What have you loved in April?
