Gardening & Yard Update
I have been doing lots of planting and gardening over the last few weeks.
I added hanging baskets to the upstairs and downstairs porches.
Some of them are not doing so well.
I talked to a gardening expert about what would work best in the baskets, but I might have to go back and talk to her again.
I have watered it every other day, but it is looking rough!
These other baskets are doing good.
I hope they continue to do good!
I was not very convinced that it would look good when I first saw it!
But... I LOVE IT NOW!!
I am almost done with the backyard hedge line.
I love it!
I can't wait to sample the fruit.
We added Palm Trees, Bottlebrushes, Hibiscus, and Hanging Baskets to the backyard area!
I love the way it turned out!
My Knockout Roses that Detto planted for me before he deployed are doing GREAT! They are getting HUGE!
He also added some Bottlebrush bushes to this area!
It was bright red when he put it in.
In just a few days it has turned all bright GREEN!
Hopefully it grows really big and provides lots of shade of that side of the house.
I love how big the leaves are.
I can not believe this palm has come back.
I thought it was done, but it has survived.
I added some of these vine-y things and they have taken off!
I also planted this Jasmine. It looked DEAD, but thankfully it has come back!I added this little snail to encourage it to grow!
Do you think it will work???
I love that we put in all of these plants.
I pray that they all send their roots deep into the soil and grow to be big and beautiful!
