How Does Your Garden Grow?
Watering cans all lined up at the ready.
A beautiful plant from my student whom I tutored in math for her junior high entrance test this past month.
Fortnight Lilies and Jasmine all in bloom. The Jasmine is early. It has a very strong perfume particularly in the evening.
The orchid cactus has outdone herself this year we must have had more than ten blooms and there are about ten more buds on it. Each bloom is at least 6 or 7 inches wide.
My plumeria survived the few frosty and cold nights we had this past winter. I threw a light cloth over it each night the temp went below 40 degrees
Can you guess what this is????
Answer: Henrietta, literally upside down, in the planter outside the den window, taking a long and messy dust bath. Yes she survived the winter also.
Sorry I had to take this through the screen. I couldn't open the screen door or either she would have whisked away -- or like a shot Bailey would have been out after her!
Here she is, looking a bit more respectable but still covered in dust. Note the dirt on the patio stone.
The man of the house is not pleased!!
