Eye of the Tiger

Tigers, exotic and deadly predators full of empty promises.
They know what they want and nothing stops them from getting it.
We meet them every day in life and it's important to recognize them
 for what they are.

It's good to have the eye of the tiger when trying to achieve your goals in life
without falling prey to other tigers who need to feed .
Today education is a top priority for most people cause
jobs are tight and there is a masters degree guy looking for your
high school grad job which leaves the high school grad out in the cold.

With Christmas and the New Year approaching, begin it with a bang ,with a
 gift to yourself of an education.
Today I saw my indoor roses let out flowers It was so exciting to see as I thought the plants were dying. I also found a huge flower on one of the rhodos on the bottom where it can't be seen.
The window coleus has taken up nice red colors but the ones I put on my sink faded.
I put on an extra light by the flowers to compensate for the lack of sun.

So I spent the day trimming cleaning all the dead brush under them Brought the straw berries in and cleaned them They were full of spiders and still growing strawberries.
I love spiders but not in the house.

Then I gave them some fertilizer and tomorrow I have to take the babies and put plastic bags around them with some soil to help them root. They are still on a stem from the main plant.
I hope they survive the winter inside They are outside plants but I thought they would freeze in the pots without ground to protect the roots.
I still  have one more long pot to bring in tomorrow and then that's it.
I took cuttings and stuck them into a long container and they took and will become beautiful bushes. with fragrant flowers. Easy to grow too. I'm almost tempted to make more of them.

When you trim the plants the cutting can be rooted. instead of thrown away.
I cut a piece of rose by mistake so I put it in water and hope maybe it will root.
I used to be good at this stuff.
