My first purchases made online. These are red Araçá trees. It is a guava with strawberry taste 😋 and attracts a lot of birds.

Two more "planted". We've found these are not really good birdbath stands for our location. Either lsrge birds tip the saucer off or squirrels. We'll see how they do as planters.

When the spouse discovered she'd married a herb/veggie garderner, she thought if she bought hybred day lily I'd take care of them. She followed my lead: in the winter order off for the seed catalogs. When the day lily catalog, she gasps ...

Here is an interesting plant which has found a bed it really likes. It is a native of the southeast where its popular name is Skyrocket. I had planted one which lived long enough to bloom and drop some seed. Some of that seed dropped into a raised...

Birdhouses & Grackles. Two of our "gourdhouses", already occupied by sparrows, now are housing nesting Grackles. Linda is NOT pleased. I'm fabricating additional traditional birdhouses out of that scrap fencing. But I'm not sure how close to each ...

Some of what's going on in my garden : I don't know what the red berries are , but I suspect they may be poisoness because neither the squirrels nor the birds eat them . The tiny white flowers are also unknown growing on a bush that was part of the ...

My chemistry is right. I have a light fuzz of algae growing on the walls, the water has cleared back up, I think that I have raccoon proofed it. The first 50 fish have mostly survived (feeder goldfish). I counted 10 dead over a week. Everyone ...

Today I noticed th rowan trees in the neighborhood. Both are heavy with fruit, those orange berries. Besides being very decorative trees, they also predict the severity of the winter to come. So, it looks like we will have a very snowy winter to ...

So. Enjoying the heat & wine & pretzels. Forgive me if these posts are getting boring. I re-potted a rubber tree & some other tropical tree we got at a tennis match years ago. That's a concrete bird bath behind it. I can sit here and watch all ...

I really like unusual plants. One of my favorite is the Monkey Tree (Chilean Pine - ). I planted a 5’ tree when I lived in Seattle (getting it home was a funny event) and when I go visit the city I drive by and my tree is now some ...

We've been working on making a new flowerbed, and started building a raised bed last summer. Unfortunately, it's been raining so much here in Virginia, that we weren't able to get the soil till a few weeks ago. Otherwise, we'd have been paying for ...
