Slicing sweet potatoes orchid query and mommy's recipes
I love this so much. Thank you.
There’s something really special about experiencing your home in periods of transition. You have inspired my curiosity about reimagining how I might experience what is still alive and well despite life’s sorrows.
Bright, but indirect light.
Keep away from cold drafts.
Place on a tray with pebbles.
Water the tray, not the plant. Plant will pull water up from roots.
Water only once every 2 weeks.
My mom also liked to "doctor" her recipes. Your cafe is filled with warmth with your mom's smile.
Thank you Patti - lovely nothingness moment
Hi Patti, I love this cafe without rules. Bev is the best guardian angel of this space and Cairo the perfect spirit.
2 ice cubes once a week. Filtered sunlight. Very important. Get orchid fertilizer, follow instructions.
I love the idea that the Cafe can be Bev's Cafe in the morning and Cairo Cafe at night, to be changed as fits the situation. Perfect idea. Also enjoyed seeing you doing lunch preparation while you talked. Very relaxing.
patti, you're precious. ♥

Apologies, I was a little late to the cafe but it was a delight! Just talking easy talk, watching you “chop” whilst hoping you weren’t going to take a finger off! I would buy you a new knife for Christmas for your veggies if I lived closer, put it on your Santa list! I liked hearing the children outside, all the while your mom watching over you Till our next meet up...keep that plant alive! 😂
Really enjoyed dropping by Bev's Cafe today!
If I were an orchid and you said good morning to me every day, I'd flourish. A little misting might also help.
I could always use more mu in my life! Thanks for the musings and kindness 🙏🏻🥰
Like you Patti, I have not in the past been good with house plants. More recently I have been having some success, and the main difference is putting them in a pot with a hole that could drain, so I could accurately regulate the dampness or dryness that plant likes. Also putting it in the right position for the light it likes and every now and then a liquid feed. But the main thing is the water regulation. Most house plants are killed through over or under watering, I am told.
Ozu really showed kindness even with the sorrows of the human condition.
