Finally, the first flowers of my peach tree opened today. Shooting sharp photos of them was a little bit of a challenge. We have some pretty strong wind guest, which bring warmer temperatures into North Texas. I had to put my shutter speed and ISO higher, and lower the aperture to get decent images. After this weekend, the whole tree will be in bloom. Hmmm! By July we might have a tree full of ripe peaches. 🍑🌸
This was the name of my first blog page I started here on WordPress, three years ago. Original my blogs supposed to be about my garden and the wildlife that visits my yard. But after three months, I ran out of writing ideas. So I gave that blog up. About a year later, I started another blog named “The Barefoot Garden Fairy”. But after two months, I’ve got bored with that as well. It was like starting a journal and then after a few pages in, I neglected it.
On New Years Day 2017, I began this blog page and told myself I have to stay focused. But I also have to change some things, if I want to keep “Under The Pecan Tree” running steadily. I decided, I use this page more as a diary. I love to write about daily things, which cross my path. This would include gardening, hiking, traveling, photography, kids’ activities, my creative side, etc. Finally I found what I was looking for in a blog. Over 14 months later, I still keep writing almost every day about my “adventures”. And I still enjoy it.
The moral of this story: If you run out of ideas to blog, try something different. Maybe the page needs a new name. Be creative, and don’t give up writing. Our interests change over the years as well. What was fun yesterday, might not be as interesting today.
