The heat seems to have abated with the storms that came through yesterday, and I went outside to take some yard shots. After 6 consecutive days of sitting, I decided to get up. LOL.
The yard looks great, thanks to the landlord’s mowing and blowing yesterday, and the rain. It is verdant green carpet, with flowering bushes and budding trees everywhere.
Last year the landlord cut back the crepe myrtle. Or severely pruned. Or, as the Grumpy Gardener says, ‘crepe murder.’ Anyway, as the crepe myrtle comes back, it looks like Sideshow Bob from The Simpsons…
I planted a pepper, two flowers with a name starting with C, and some other flowers. LOL, I am not a gardener. I just bought what was cheap, pretty, and would last in a sunny spot with concrete, and went from there. If anything actually comes up I will be shocked. I spent a total of 20 minutes. At least I put them in fresh potting soil.
A friend of mine will give me an aloe cutting and also a spider plant cutting. I will stay on the lookout for small succulents to put in my white espresso cups. And now, I’m back down. Up is good. Down is better.
