An Update

Howdy y’all. It’s been a hot minute since my last post. The truth is that I’ve been taking some time to work through a few things in my personal life, which is why I haven’t been updating so much lately. Not sure when I’ll return to my old update routine, but I am hoping to […]

A Little Shop

Small Flowers

My garden has been doing well as of late. At the start of the summer, I had a little scare with some wilting and the death of one of my marigolds. I’ve since discovered that my apartment is prone to overheating during the afternoon, which means I need to water more frequently.


This plant has been growing like crazy ever since I bought it. A couple of months ago, I tried staking it to grow around 3 chopstics, but it continues to grow out of control. Debating whether or not to buy a terrace for it or let it wind its way around the furniture.


Over the holidays, I aquired a couple more plants. From the local Daiso, I got the tall green on on the right. The daffodils were from a sale at the supermarket. The middle one has been in my collection for a while, but was bought off the clearance rack at Muji.


Some of my smaller plants have been doing very well despite the cooler temperatures. This is one of the ones I got from Muji on clearance. After staking it will chopsticks, it started growing offshoots very quickly. Hopefully it will continue to thrive in the coming months.

Sprouting Up

One of my plants has begun to sprout additional vines. I never expexpected it to do so well, considering it was a ¥100 shop find.
