Bigger isn’t always better

Finally found a smaller tray table that could fit most of the outdoor succulents on my balcony. I gave away a huge chunk of my plant collection recently and now they all fit in the corner, allowing me to sit out there as well. I can even bring a friend out there now.

I think you can see what I mean by looking at the before and after photos. Even the best hobby can take over your life. Sometimes you just have to manage it to properly enjoy yourself.

Night and succulents

It has rained a couple of times this year, but last night I had the most amazing experience – and so did my neighbours. We all stood on our balconies and watched the clouds light up and the rain fall from the sky. And I’m not making this up, but a couple of people stood outside in the rain with their arms stretched out, spinning in place and laughing.
My mom even texted me, telling me that her neighbour stood completely motionless in her garden with an umbrella, just taking it all in. It was all such a surreal experience for everyone.
