So here's what I've been up to here of late. Anyone who knows me...knows that spring is a big time for me. This year in Florida we've been having some great weather on and off. So the old spring chores have begun. Added more plants to my front flower beds, refreshed a planter from an old solar fountain in my son's garden. Redid the gardens around my deck. Pulled weeds, weeds and more weeds. All of the gardens are just starting to wake up, so I'll post pics when they're in bloom. And I got a wild hair up my rear and decided to plant some fruit trees. So far, we've planted a pear tree, a peach tree an orange tree and 2 satsuma nectarine trees. To keep things simple I chose self pollinating trees and types where the fruit is yummy right off the tree.
Found this beautiful pink dogwood tree with fabulous burgandy blooms...so naturally I had to get that. So much symbolism in the dogwood tree.
Also found some beautiful rose trees at my favorite store...Lowes. Got a pink and a red. Planted them in large pots with mini roses surrounding them. The pots flank each side of my arbour going down into the yard. I was hugely surprised at how many buds and the amount of new growth on them. Here's a pic of one of the beautiful pink buds.
Lots more still to do...hmmmm...maybe I should save my energy for harvesting my oranges...Mwahahaha. So, WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN UP TO???
