Well…..after the freezes,the flu,Dad being in and out of the hospital(more of that in the days to come,too),get-a-ways to Sanibel Island,not to mention computer problems,I guess it’s time to get to work on the mess in the gardens…..
Just a taste of the destruction on TheGreatWall
My butt hurts……my legs hurt…..not to mention my lower back….
However,let us plow on,shall we?…..
the Ground Orchids…
The losses to date…
2 plumeria(great sadness on this).this has never happened before,but they were toast all the way to the ground.Not a good sign.
Too many to mention annuals.
One of my Dad’s orchids.It was brought up to the covered patio,and covered with Christmas lights.An orchid right next to it made it just fine.
What went wrong?
Yes,he knows.His response,”Give it time.See if it comes back.No great loss.”
I wish I could feel that way….
The To-Do List:
the front yard(a start was made on that today---why the back hurts…)
the side gardens
replanting last year’s failures,with more of Florida natives.
cleaning out the palms by the pool(this is the third year in a row they have been frozen.I think it’s time they were replaced with something more hardy.)
you get the drift?
and now,with a chicken(stuffed with fresh Ponderosa lemons and fresh Rosemary)in the oven,it’s time to soak the back,in a hot bath,have an adult beverage and enjoy the evening……
and maybe a beach day,this week!
Enjoy the gardening week,everyone!
