Took a short stroll around the yard today and discovered flowers which I did NOT plant, blooming in random places. These petunias have beautiful veins and may not last long. It’s always a thrill to watch this place we call “home” come alive every year. The ornamental cherry was so lovely. The blossoms are short-lived but well worth the wait.
The pink flowers at the base of this tree is creeping phlox. It is one of my favorite ground covers. My mom used to call it “thrift”. I have no clue why she called it that. Most likely it’s what her mom or grandma called it. This tree can be seen from my home office. It’s nice to have an office with a view and since this end of my home is where we set up the home office; you could say I also have a “corner” office. Working from home has its perks.
While it’s always fun to share some of the plants and things around the yard; the main purpose of THIS blog is to try to master WordPress. The struggle is real. As I still have all the hair on my head and have not yet pulled it out; it may be safe to say that I am making progress. This is no Nobel prize winner, for sure. Although, my third grade English teacher would be pleased.
The wisteria photo is from a year ago. We’ve since had to burn and purge that whole section. While the wisteria is just gorgeous and smells good too; it was actually being over-run with, of all things, honeysuckle. There are places where honeysuckle is prized and kept in greenhouses. Down here in the deep South it’s a nuisance and we’ve been known to buy goats to keep it in check.
The sheet; by the way, is my peach sheet. I actually went out and bought this sheet for a single purpose. My little peach tree had bloomed and had tiny “would be” peaches and then we had three nights of really cold weather. So; it was time to cover my little tree and cross my fingers. I paid $2.99 for this one sheet. Shopping at the Salvation Army is never boring.
Until next time, I’ll be rambling around the yard to see what’s new. Y’all be blessed!
