Don’t laugh! I haven’t turned into a gardener. But I have to share the beautiful work hubby has done, with a wee bit of help from me.
This planter in front of our house was put in by the first homeowner and it was supposed to be a fountain, but the HOA nixed that idea. So it became a planter. That big prickly pear was shriveled and dying when we arrived. But look at it now! It’s even getting new pads! I did a lot of trimming on this.
This oleander wasn’t much better. The drought last summer took its toll. But it is lovely now after a severe trim and some water.
I love lavender and this variety is gorgeous.
This is a Pygmy Palm.
I can’t remember what this is called. Something needles. It is very cool looking!
I think that gardenia up front might go back to Michigan with us.
Look at those tomatoes! This plant is going back too. Every year the hubs and Daughter #1 have a contest to see who gets the first ripe tomato. I think he’s got it in the bag this year.
These tiny things are mandarins! I have no idea when they will be ripe. Daughter #2 is staying at our house while we are gone and will keep an eye on it.
Have a great day!
