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.

Lavender

Lavender

Living in the south can sometimes be a challenge when trying to grow certain plants. The sun is so strong and the humidity is so high at times that I can barely stand it, let alone the plants.

One of my absolute favorite plants is lavender.  When I’m visiting my daughter in San Francisco, I noticed they grow like crazy up there.

They do sell lavender here so I’m assuming they should grow here. Someone somewhere is playing a bad trick on me. because I can’t seem to keep one alive. I couldn’t help myself I bought another one and I’m gonna try again.
