Reflection on the 2022 Garden – Lesson Learned


If there is ONE lesson I learned from the 2022 garden, it would be plants like the sun but not love the sun. I learned that most vegetables like cucumber, squash, beans, and even tomatoes benefit from a bit of shade.

#SundayStills: Nature is Sure #Mysterious


I agree with Terri, nature is mysterious. It can turn such thing as a tree into a fossil if it lived long enough.

Looking at the topic this week, which is mysterious, I thought about my visit to the Petrified Forest State Park in 2021. Note that this is the state park in Utah, not the national park in Arizona. Petrified Forest State Park is much smaller but it’s still an awesome place to visit.

We paid our entrance fee, parked the car, and spent a few hours exploring the park on foot, which is kind of mandatory given the petrified forest is located along a single trail.

It’s sure a mystery how these trees managed to survive this long as all around them, civilization thrived. I’d bet these trees have seen things, encountered plenty of natural events, and probably once lived with dinosaurs. It’s just amazing to think of all the things that have happened to these trees to have it survive to today. Nature is sure a wonderful mystery.
