Time has passed a bit since I have provided an update on the yard. It is constantly evolving and I find myself addicted to the progress.
Mom gave me these succulents, many from her yard, and some she purchased. I like them all grouped together. They are looking more established and are starting to add leaves.
My sister-in-law, Laura, gave me this pottery, which I love. Great is thy faithfulness. Amen.
We cut the jasmine way back and it is coming back with a vengeance. This stuff has great perseverance.
Both the hastas and St. John’s Wart are filling in nicely. And the chives are blooming!
I am not sure what this yellow flower is but it sure is friendly. My mother went with me to the nursery and told me I needed it, but I still don’t know what it is.
These indigo spires were in the yard when we moved in. They are just now beginning to bloom and feeling the love a little water can provide.
And we have tomatoes. They are not big, but they are there! Just as long as the critters stay away….
I believe this is a banana pepper and it is about 3 inches long.
An itty bitty jalapeno.
No sign of squash yet, but the plant is getting big.
I think this is eggplant and I hope it makes it!
In the foreground is the pomogranate tree and in the background are flowers that the birds brought into Mom’s yard…she thought I needed them.
Lantana is a survivor. It was all here when we moved in and is finally blooming!
