My cousin’s grandma sent me the sweetest Christmas gift this year, which was something I wasn’t expecting! She gave me a Red Lion Amaryllis bulb kit to grow. In the past, I usually tend to kill any plant given to me so I apologized to the bulb as I planted it (upside down) and then waited to see what would happen. First thing to happen? I replanted it right side up and then it grew! The flowers were a lovely bright spot by the window on dreary winter days.

This is now the SECOND plant I’ve kept alive so I think the moral of this story could be…you CAN teach an old dog new tricks, haha! But really, I think my black thumb is turning into a green one and someday I will enjoy having a bigger garden than just 2 plants. 🙂

Are you a gardener? What advise would you give a someone starting out?

{Springbrook} Fall First

kandihamble_springbrook_fallfirst-1Fall is my favorite season for a couple reasons. First, THE COLORS! They are glorious! kandihamble_springbrook_fallfirst-2I also love how it’s cool (alright, in MN it can get COLD!) at night but warm during the day. kandihamble_springbrook_fallfirst-3The reeds look like they’re in ice, don’t they? This day was a PERFECT fall day! kandihamble_springbrook_fallfirst-4 kandihamble_springbrook_fallfirst-5I went down a path I don’t often take, and saw some pretty colors. kandihamble_springbrook_fallfirst-6If you would like to see more of my fall photos from Springbrook, follow me on Instagram!
