Hello!!! It has been too long! I have been knee deep in packing and cleaning for the past two weekends. Not much to blog about when that is your weekend project.
Today I noticed that my pot of succulents had died since I left them out all winter on the porch. Sorry no before photo. My little cactus from Sedona, AZ was still alive so I went to Lowes and picked up a few more to refresh this pot.
That really prickly one is from Arizona. I can’t believe it lived all through the winter outside. My hands faired much worse while repotting, ouch! Also a spider had made a nice home for itself in there, protected by all those pricks. I had to clean the web off with a toothpick. I added another aloe plant because those are always nice to have on hand. Really wish I’d had that earlier this week when I burnt my arm with the curling iron!
In other gardening news, take a look at this picture….
This photo makes me a little sad about moving. I love our current yard and I worked hard getting the plants in front of our house looking good. This particular area is just what I like with plants, it is thick with varying heights. My peony looked so pretty just a week ago but still you get the point. It took 6 years to look like this! It is the one thing I dread about moving to a new construction house, the yard looks so dull for years.
Then after all the hard work, you wake up one Spring and it looks like this :)
Happy Gardening! Hope you are making the most of your Springtime planting I really miss it this year.
Now back to packing….we have a month to pack everything up and get our minor repairs done around here! Busy Busy Busy!
