One of the things that I've grown to love about gardening and growing flowers is just learning to appreciate that not everything can be controlled... You can give a seedling everything it needs- the right soil, water, and sunlight- but sometimes it just won't grow.
Or a beautiful patch of zinnias could just be overran with Johnson Grass in the blink of an eye...
But then that crop of Cosmos that got forgotten about in the side yard is blooming and thriving despite that it was never watered or cared for. .
Growing flowers is more than just growing flowers. It's learning from failure. Accepting that nothing will go perfectly, and that you can only plan for so much.
"Wild Rose" 🌹🌹🌹🌹 I didn't ask to be associated with flowers it just happened. 🌹The idea for my website came after I writhed and cried in agony after missing a Guns N Roses concert in 2016. 🌹The name of my website came to me during a late summer commute home.
🌹My signature kimono was a mindless buy until I wore it as tribute to my abuela after she died. She loved roses.
🌹The chain my godfather gave my mother when I was born is a rose.
🌻The first thing I painted was a sunflower.
🌻I revere Van Gogh who was also fond of sunflowers. 🌹🌻🌷🌸Then the flowers started TALKING to me and I just accepted my fate lol.
I am Amanda Rose because it's what life decided, I just followed the sun. 🌞😎 #poetry#instapoet#instapoem#poem#writer#wildflowers#roses#wildroses#sunflowers#flowers#rocknrollrose#rocknrollrosewrites#rebelwriter#rebelpoet
#FavoriteTrack Corey. Paranoia 2 is better than what I expected. I usually don’t like part 2’s and so on to albums, but this one might be better than the first. The production and engineering on this album is amazing. Dave East is doing what he does as far as story telling from his point of view. The song #Corey is a story of how he made it big and tried to bring someone to the top with him, but life and jealousy happened. #DaveEast did his THING on this album and I’m excited to see what else is going to come from the Harlem native. #Sunflowers have you heard #Paranoia2 ?

"The kiss of the sun for pardon, the song of the birds for mirth, one is nearer God's Heart in a garden than anywhere else on earth"- Dorothy Frances Gurney. here's to one more minute of sunshine each frozen January day, and to all who dig, toil, grunt, bleed in our gardens. And receive the gift of blooms planted by your own hands-dirt-filled fingernails and all and the surprise to see a bumblebee wakeup in the early morning asleep in a sunflower or a hummingbird zoom from a zinnea. Its embarrassing to admit I often say outloud "hello gorgeous" to a fresh new bloom before I cut it.
Hi guys! Oh my god it’s been a century since I’ve posted I’m so sorry ahdshdkdndm- anyway, I’m so sorry I haven’t posted in so long but I have an announcement. This account is going to be an art account AND an editing account! I’ve actually been editing pictures and videos for years! (On my phone) but sadly I’ve quit for awhile. But now I want to edit on computers and do way better than before! Don’t worry, I’ll still post art. :) I hope you stay with me in the change of my account! I’ll still need to practice a LOT on editing since I’m not sure how to use computer editing programs. Okay well, see you later! Love y’all! 💛 (song: cut my hair by Cavetown) edit: UGH WHY DID INSTAGRAM RUIN THE QUALITY
