Coming Up On Summer In The Garden

My Agapanthus and Lavender are blooming beautifully.  I am so ready for the foundation to be finished so we can start on the kitchen equipment and patio furniture. I have this vision in mind of how everything is supposed to look, but like everything else, these things take time and money. Anyway, I thought I’d post a few pics on how the landscaping is going away from the construction area. That area is just a hot mess. You’ll see that I like sectioning off different areas with a variety of trees, shrubs. or flowers. I think it looks, I don’t know, pretty cool.

My cactus garden, might very well get out of hand. This one’s growing fast.

Oh!, and we expanded a sitting area in the back part of the yard. We just laid a few more stones for a contrast in color, it needed it.

Well, the hard cold weather has passed us down here in Orlando, and that’s good news for my garden.

My heirloom tomato plant, arugula, and other herbs are doing great. The Hydrangea has been cut back right at the end of our winter and is now with their bright new green leaves are starting a new. Cactus garden, well, you’ll have to see for yourself.

Reaching one more achievement, I’m celebrating the fact my lavender is still alive, and that just surprises me every day. Oh, and my Meyer lemon tree well just have a look. Yay!

My hanging herb garden with flat leaf Italian parsley, thyme, oregano, basil, rosemary, and mint on the wall are doing just fine. To be perfectly honest, when I was younger I couldn’t grow a thing, as I grew older, gardening became a part of my life, kind of like meditating. There’s just a calming feeling when you’re out in the garden.
