Gardening tip: if you have geraniums and you want them to bloom, water but don't feed them. Geraniums can happily go without feed for a long time, and feeding them encourages the growth of foliage but not flowers.
If they get too dried out in hot weather and lose a large number of leaves feed them regularly for a few weeks.
Hi rosemow :) They are lovely colours! I've already got a pink one and a red one so they'll go rather well together, and indeed! they're a lovely flower, and happy being looked after by me; I'm pretty hopeless with plants usually, but I'm good with geraniums.
Hi luthienrising :) I do too. They were suffering a little bit; dried up flowers and some brown leaves, but they also had plenty of green leaves so I think they'll be OK. They're actually looking better than my other two which have got a bit dried out in the recent hot weather while I've been snowed under with uni work.
Poor little white one was sat on the bottom shelf of a display stand hidden amongst the bouquets, easily going unnoticed and not getting any natural light. :( It's now on a bright, sunny window ledge. :)
Hey, that's actually a good cover for a vamp trying to blend in with the locals!
He can claim he's out at night, catching fish when it's more quiet...
And as for the Fish food - to mask the smell of blood, that's likely always emanating from him... XD
There's nothing quite like thinking your debit card is lost and getting the bank to block and reissue the card, only to then find the card when you get home. That and the torrential rain have combined to make today a rather strange one.
Having a horrible time with my last German language essay. It's hard to write about a particular topic when they want to specifically see language from their course used, yet they don't provide you with the vocabulary for the subject the essay's on. *facepalm*
Thank you very much despina :) :)
Update: contacted my tutor, she advised me to take advantage of my (very basic) prior knowledge of German, why really helps a lot. Might seem like an obvious thing but you never can tell in these situations without proper clarification.
*cringes!* I feel your pain. >.<
I wish you a speedy heal up!
A few yrs ago I splashed boiling water on myself, while mixing spaghetti (not usually that clumsy).
It blistered right over stretch marks (3 kids, with one being almost 10lbs, did me in. I'm a small person, lol). I spent about 2 weeks worried it would split open or something, eeks...luckily it healed ok.
Hello :) It is great that you are learning both Greek and Finnish. It is a good idea to learn just a few words of each a day. You will be able to take them in a bit more easier and keep the knowledge of them.
Awh thank you so much! that's really cool of you, I have always wanted to kinda know a language of where I go (kinda stupid but I think it's respectful) and after going to Italy for the first time last year and some shows I watch featuring Spanish both of those kinda just jumped out at me - what made you choose Greek?
Absolutely! it's totally doable, and there are languages out there a lot harder to learn than Italian and Spanish. Visiting a country where the language is spoken, especially when you already know a bit is probably the best way of building your skill level.
