Love is all around us, especially in the garden. I share with you a couple of found images from my garden. The image on the left is a petal from a rockrose that blew onto an aloe, and the image on the right is a petal from a camellia flower that was on my front path. Random, spontaneous reminders all year long! Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
We’re into February and headed to Springtime! We’ve have some rain and cooler weather, so I feel like this year has started out more normally than last year, but that’s what keeps it interesting in the garden, right?
Pruning and fertilizing are big jobs this month, but remember, don’t prune frost-damaged plants until you see new growth sprouting. Look over February Garden Tasks and give your garden a nice start toward spring and summer.
Okay, you’ve had the first day of the year to recover from 2014, so now there’s work to do in the garden. Check out the January Garden Tasks to help you get organized and git ‘er done. Happy New Year!!! Here’s to a beautiful garden all year…..
Here’s to 2015 and a new start to 3000Tomatoes. It’s been over a year of selling, buying, moving, remodeling and moving again. Finally, we’re settling into our new little house and I have dirt under my fingernails again, so let’s garden together! Happy New Year!!!
My vintage postcard collection includes quite a few postcards of poinsettia, which cross over from my garden collection to San Diego history as well.
Poinsettia were a novelty during the early years of the 20th century. Of course, San Diego has the perfect growing climate and has capitalized on that fact. In fact, the poinsettia was the official flower of the 1915 Panama-California Exposition.
Happy Monday. We’ve been hoping for rain (there have been a lot of promises!) but it’s just hot. I’m looking forward to cooler weather but I can’t imagine ever wearing fleece again! Anyway, now that I’ve vented, here is a selection for Miscellaneous Monday. This website doesn’t look so great but don’t let that fool […]
