This is the last batch of yard roses for the year! Fingers crossed for more rain this weekend, our area could really use it and so could my plants! Day 4 of #NaBloMoPo has me feeling very under the weather so I’ll leave this pretty picture of my roses and be back tomorrow with Thursday Thoughts!
Mr. P built our raised planter today! I also moved my gorgeous gerber daisy and I’m really hoping it doesn’t die. It totally wilted a few hours after we dug it up but I’m hoping cool water and plant food will keep it together. Sorry for the weird pictures, house back yard butts up against a hill so throughout the day at least half of it is in some kind of shade.
Here’s a picture of what I worked the entire day on…
Presenting my lone little Meyer lemon tree! I’ve been wanting to plant a citurs tree in my sun soaked backyard and when I saw these drawf lemon trees, I just knew that I needed one for my own.
There are several challenges with regards to my yard. It’s super sandy. It’s rocky. It’s on the side of a hill with all kinds of critters lurking underneath the soil. It’s so hard to grow ANYTHING here and I was super sad that my strawberry and lettuce patch got eaten by the slugs and squirrels.
But I’m not going to quit and today we prepped for more berries, a vegetable box and a citrus tree. I also pruned our potato bush which was growing out of control!
Both Mr P and I were totally funky so I took the opportunity to slap on a mask and soak in the tub once le bebe decided to go to bed.
A bliss evening indeed.
