It’s been a while since I have posted and I’ve been a little busy bee. I been gardening a bit I removed 25 plants that were in the front garden beds that I thought would not be a good idea to leave there since some would grow about 25 ft. tall. I relocated some to the back and they are hanging in there nothing to write about just yet. I added a few Sago Palms and some Canna Lilies in those front garden beds. The back yard is a little crazy started my seedlings and have propagated a rose from a beautiful rose bunch that we received.
Rose on left and seedlings on right (Peppers, Christmas Palms, Tomatoes, Basil, Thyme and an Avocado seed), we’ll see what happens.
I been trying to start my Orchid collection again since the 10 + Orchids I took to TN with me all died.
I have 2 Vanilla bean and Phalaenopsis purple flower. (picture on left)
A Mamey Sapote (picture on the right) which is still struggling with it’s transplant but is budding new leaves in the center, we’ll see what happens.
Planted some Blueberry bushes and a Blackberry vine.
Blueberries on top pic and the Blackberry is the 2 pics on the bottom.
I also planted a Meyers Lemon just because I love the smell of the leaves when you walk by and I had to have a Coconut Palm.
Meyers Lemon, left pic and Coconut palm to the right pic, the plant that is towards the back.
I did bring some plants with me from TN that survived because I kept indoors or in the back porch and now they seem to be happier.
Coffee plant, Lilac that is starting to show signs of budding leaves after the relocation and 2 Blueberry bushes that are trying to hang in there.
I have also added a lot of Canna Lilies because I love the tropical feel and added so Ti plants – Cordyline Fruticosa Chocolate Queen , one’s they use in Hawaii to make hula skirts.
Red Ti plant rooting from cutting, left pic, Ti plant back corner (long purple leaves (Cordyline Fruticosa Chocolate Queen), One of the many Canna’s that are scattered around, right pic.
This is the beginning of planning and creating my yard, no mulching or finalizing of plantings have been done. I will plant and relocate again and again until I see that the plants are happy then I will make walking paths and mulch. It’s going to be a process, LOL. I’ll keep you posted.
Aside from gardening I have been working in my studio, check out the on the easel post today. 🙂
