    [–] The first dahlia buds have finally fully opened Aleena_Perez 1 points ago in gardening

    Thank you! I was worried about it but I'll just be patient for a bit longer

    [–] The first dahlia buds have finally fully opened Aleena_Perez 2 points ago in gardening

    How long do your buds typically take to open from the time you notice them? I have a couple that have formed, the outer layer has pulled back, but the bud doesn't seem to be doing much else. It's only been 5 days but I can't find info on how long it should take.

    [–] What is this!?!! It was not here yesterday Aleena_Perez 2 points ago in gardening

    I used a mix of potting and gardening soil in a raised bed. They weren't organic, just miracle gro. But they did have lots of little pieces of much. I added bonemeal and blood meal to fertilize as well. Oh and a bit of cow manure.

    [–] What is this!?!! It was not here yesterday Aleena_Perez 1 points ago in gardening

    Sorry I couldn't add more details in post. It's squishy but solid like marshmallow creme and came right up. It was not attached to the onion, and it was only on the surface. What is this, how do I deal with it, why did it happen? I've never even heard of something like this and it literally happened overnight!

    [–] Why do my eyes get tired when wearing makeup? Aleena_Perez 1 points ago in MakeupAddiction

    Lemons are natural. Try sticking them on your eye and see just how much of a scam "natural" products are. If you're eyes are getting irritated/puffy from wearing makeup it could be from cheap makeup. Makeup from PRC could contain any number of disgusting things from feces to asbestos. You don't have to spend a lot of money on expensive makeup though. Just focus on brands made outside of PRC/China. It could also just be that your eyes are sensitive to the pigments, talc, or some other common ingredient. A lot of dyes can cause irritation, that's why many are not approved for eyes by the fda. Avoid using concealer on the eyes and try a light neutral eye look one day to see if it still creates a problem.
    Dior is not the best brand, despite being a more expensive one. Spending more money won't make a foundation formula right for you anyways. You need to pay attention to what you need, not what everyone else claims to like. Do you need a liquid, cream, or powder? Do you need it to be heavily pigmented or just a sheer wash of color? Do you need it to provide hydration over the day? What do you need the foundation to do, exactly?

    [–] Someone put my garbage bin to the curb for me. Aleena_Perez 2 points ago in CasualConversation

    Sometimes (like once ever couple months) I forget and the garbage men here come up the drive and grab it for me. They're just really nice and realize people are human. Might have been the same in your case.

    [–] How do you manage freezing nights every night? Aleena_Perez 1 points ago in gardening

    What part are you in? Where I'm at last year there were quite a few times in even July and august where the nights were in the forties and fifties. I would never call us having warm nights, even though there is occasionally an evening that only requires a light jacket instead of a medium one. I run my space heater at least 350 nights a year. On a side note, i could honestly build a greenhouse and deal with the weather long term. A 12$ minimum wage isn't bad compared to the rest of the country. And the traffic isn't bad once you get away from the small towns and around people who merge and keep right. The deal breaker for me is dealing with the local people and their idea of "good" food/music/times in this area LOL

    [–] How do you manage freezing nights every night? Aleena_Perez 1 points ago in gardening

    For sure that's what I'm realizing. Maybe even the second week to be safe. And I'll have to be very careful about choosing things with a less than 90 day mature time.

    [–] How do you manage freezing nights every night? Aleena_Perez 1 points ago in gardening

    Thank you! Unfortunately I'm coming to the conclusion that I'm just going to have to give up on the idea of a full garden until I move somewhere more conducive to life itself lol. I don't like the taste of most cold hardy plants. Ill have to just be happy with an onion and garlic garden. Maybe I'll get lucky with spinach and strawberries too. I'll get some of those water bags to give everything a better chance. I dont like it here so I don't want to invest a huge amount into a greenhouse or anything like that.

    [–] How do you manage freezing nights every night? Aleena_Perez 1 points ago in gardening

    Thank you! I'll have to Google them and see if I can pester them with a few questions.

    [–] How do you manage freezing nights every night? Aleena_Perez 1 points ago in gardening

    Like drape it over the plants? Or put it down on the soil between watering?

    [–] How do you manage freezing nights every night? Aleena_Perez 1 points ago in gardening

    Im in Eastern colorado. Zone 5. But all of the planting guides for my zone suggest I can grow things that other guides say will die at 40 degrees. And I know we will continue getting those temps at night. Which leaves me confused.

    [–] Mystery tree help from some experts? Aleena_Perez 1 points ago in gardening

    Oh wow in pretty sure that was it! This one was huge compared to the potted ones coming up on Google. But the flowers and leaves and structure look exact.

    [–] Mystery tree help from some experts? Aleena_Perez 1 points ago in gardening

    Maybe? It might have been a young one with just a few blooms so far. Or it could have been carefully pruned. That does look like it but the flowers in the pics I see are still a bit small and plentiful.

    [–] Mystery tree help from some experts? Aleena_Perez 1 points ago in gardening

    A few inches wide at least. About the size of a large rose.
