Butterflies Are Back!
I've been seeing them for days but never with a camera in hand to document them.   The one above could not wait for Pentas to get planted out. He's visiting plants taken out of the greenhouse to harden. I haven't as many Pentas kept over as cuttings this ye...

Return of Shirley Tulips
If you've followed my blog you know that I do know how to trick Tulips into blooming. Once. They seldom return. One year I tried putting them in pots. The puppy ate them. This year, I left off Tulip bulbs in favor of Hyacinths and Paperwhites. I was rewarde...

Spring Comes with some Reservations
I spent much of the morning hauling out Epiphyllums to their summer spot, huge awkward things with 4-foot stems. They're propped next to shrubbery that helps support them and gives them a little relief from late afternoon sun. Now more cool weather is predi...

Spring Arrives and Flowers Emerge
It's here with all the joys and surprises that come with Spring's arrival. Last year I planted 100 tulips, or was it more? About half of them managed blooms and proved that I can too, bring tulips to bloom in the Deep South if I am of a mind to go to all th...

Building a Pathway is Hard Work
The pathway in front of the mule barn is a bigger undertaking than I really thought it would be. The drive slants. Should the pathway just slope or should it have steps? Pieces laid out to see if there are enough scraps to cover the  area and determine wher...

This will look so neat.  Love the different shapes you're using.  It always takes a long time to do this.

Mule Barn Pathway
Something must be done in front of the Mule Barn step. Construction always leaves a mess and this mess is a slight slope so everything wants to wash away during rains. Here's what I was left with: a step 42" x 18" -- suggested by Mr. Sam the Concrete Man an...

Orchids on an Outing
My Orchids went outdoors today. It's easier to water indoor plants if they're outside on a ledge where water can drain away. Maybe they don't really enjoy a bit of time outdoors. In my mind, they do. Cloudy day, no chance of sunburn. Two different Paphs are...

Path Progress
Perseverance is hard when everything is blooming and there's so much to see and do besides grub around on the ground with pieces of brick and stone and bits.  Dirt got left on the step and the edges are still rough. The middle is rough too but there's somet...

What Blossoms We Missed in the Last Peek
When I posted the Spring peek into the Greenhouse, I missed these beauties completely. I found them today when I moved out the Epiphyllums and relocated the Hippeastrums.  Burro tail sedum blooms! I could hardly believe it. How did I miss these? They were k...

Spring Peek into the Greenhouse
First Day of Spring. I moved 28 pots of Schlumbergeras out yesterday to my improvised urban stone patio. They aren't very attractive out of bloom but worth keeping around for next Winter's Thanksgiving and Christmas blossoms. Pots of Rhapsalidopsis are stil...

Amaryllis and Patio
I am in awe of these Hippeastrums. I dawdled along and never bought new bulbs. I did take time to repot or at least add soil to the big pots at the end of summer. Benfica and Apple Blossom I wasn't sure this was Apple Blossom because the color is more inten...

Birds in a Nest for Foliage Follow Up
New foliage is sprouting out everywhere, inside and out. Birds Nest Fern with new Birds. This one loves a little shade. Bromeliad with a friend. A closer look at froggie. What? Oh, yes. Foliage. Stobilanthes and Purple Heart cuttings are about ready to go i...

About the best thing to be said about winter weeds is that they are green. Oh, and they provide nectar for the occasional butterfly that hap
