Springtime and a New Baby

Does anyone remember Baby Groot?

He’s a year old now. A whole year. I can hardly believe it. They grow up so fast.

We haven’t had a birthday celebration for him yet, mostly because I am waiting for his new leaves to come out, but in the meantime, something exciting has happened!

We had a baby!

Isn’t she cute?

(I’m pretty sure this one is a she.)

I gathered about six acorns last fall and kept them all snug and damp in the back of my refrigerator. Only two of them ended up sprouting, and this little beauty is the first to make an appearance. Her twin is in an identical pot, and I expect to see him popping up any day now, since he already has a very nice root system growing.

Now I have to find names for them. If you happen to think of any that you particularly like, please drop them in the comments! I’d love a little help.

As you can see from the pictures, it is raining this morning, the flowers are blooming, our woods are flushed with green, and spring is finally here. As you cannot see (thankfully) I am so, so sick. And have been for a while. If you think of it, send comforting thoughts and cold remedies. I would definitely appreciate them!

Do you have any new arrivals around your home, plants or otherwise? Tell me about them!

  1. I’m sorry you’re still sick! Lots of tea and garlic and ginger with lemon and sleep and sunshine. Epsom salt bath, fruits that are full of vitamins, probiotics… that’s all I can think of. I hope you start feeling better sooooon!

    I’m so sorry you’re sick, Abigail!
    If you can stomach it, tomato juice is even more potent than vitamin C and kicks butt. Also if you can get a immune boost tincture at a health food store, those are packed with great stuff. There are lots of kinds, but you can ask them for advice for the strongest one and take it like ten times a day in water.
    My favorite cold remedy drink is warm water with 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar, 1-2 tsp raw honey, 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp fresh lemon. It detoxifies you from the inside out and the honey breaks up congestion.
    Also amazing is GSE- it’s concentrated grapefruit seed extract drops. When you’re sick, you take 10 drops in juice or milk 6 times a day. Also a great detoxifier.

    Prayers for your recovery, my friend!
