For those of you who know me, you know that I love gardening. If I could have a house on 5 - 10 acres I'd be a happy camper! But, I live in the city, so I play in the little bit of dirt in my backyard as much as I can. I soon will have a new greenhouse that has REAL WINDOWS, a REAL DOOR, and REAL VENTS! I cannot wait ... but, right now I've got my tomatoes and peppers growing in the raised bed and my strawberry experiment is thriving! This strawberry plant is doing amazing!! It's tripled in size since I planted it Easter weekend!
I have been trying to make the front flower beds Texas(y) since we moved in ... prickly pair cactus are so cool to watch grow and now that they are really well rooted, I've added some Texas wildflowers to the flowerbed. Here is what one of the cacti looked like last summer.
And here is the same plant in which I took a picture of about 15 minutes ago ....
Isn't that amazing!!!!!
I planted the wildflower seeds last year and had very minimal flowers.
This year it is really a nice burst of color against the prickly pears.
Here is one of my other prickly pears ...
I need to finish cleaning the bed and add new mulch ...
hopefully over memorial day weekend it'll be all cleaned up!
I did have some blue bonnets in the flower bed this year, but I kept
forgetting to get a picture!
