Sorry

I do this everytime...I start a website of some kind
and then I just stop. I'm not very commited to writing.
Should have been some sort of new years resolution....

But I haven't stopped gardening.
Even though there hasn't been much to do lately.

But there is a lot to catch up on, so let's see where I left off.
September?!? Ugh ok.

The best thing this winter has been the greens.
I have never grown salad greens before.
I don't know why. They have been extremely easy,
and extremely good.

This is some of them back in October but they have pretty
much looked the same since then.


The second best thing has been the Camellias.

Here is one of the kanjiro I have. I have three of them right next to each other and they ought to be beautiful when they get really big.

Here are the Shishi Gashira I planted behind the patio wall.
When we moved in there were these bushes with spiked leaves.
They didn't do anything but poke you, so they got ripped out.
These sasanqua are suppose to have cacading, low habitat
although I have seen conflicting descriptions on the web.

Here is one of them up close. Again...these ought to be pretty impressive when they fill in because I was impressed already. I had one planted last year and I waited all year for them to come back to the nurseries.




A Yuletide I planted still blooming. I also planted a Marie Bracey but it never really bloomed.

Everything has been covered in leaves like snow.


Here's one of my erlicheer daffodils which are currently blooming.

And here is the carolina jasmine on the mailbox. Doesn't my lawn look good?! I think it looks better now than it has the whole time we have been here! That's because we overseeded it with rye grass this year. I also spread cottonseed meal last week...so we'll see if that does any good.

Hello Amy! You sure came back with some great blooming plants in your post. The Camellias are already beautiful, so now all they need to do is gain some size.

Good to see you blogging again! I'm doing a research project on blogs in the Mobile area. Would you mind e-mailing me so I can ask you a few questions? Thanks much! charcoalartist@comcast.net
