Now.....50% is how many of my seeds actually sprouted. Whaaaa :(
|The empty cups are the ones that didn't sprout.|
|Our vegetable garden is really taking off :)|
Stowell's corn in the back left corner, Collard
Greens & tomatillos in the top right, Red romaine,
green romaine & Red Curly lettuce in front left,
purple peppers, cilantro & tarragon in lower right.
|Marigolds as insect control throughout|
the vegetable garden.
|My little succulent group, ready to be planted in a|
cool new planter for our new patio area. Oh yeah
one of my yummy dragon fruits I picked this morning.
|My sole surviving 'Moon & Stars' Watermelon|
Grow baby grow!!!
|My sole surviving 'Black Krim' tomato|
The more sun the tomatoes fruit get, the darker in
color they turn; almost like a "purple black". They
are one of the most delicious tomatoes I have eaten!
|Our little rabbiteye blueberry bush is doing quite|
well. Hoping for some delicious blueberries
this year, even if it's just a handful, lol.
|This is a Butterfly Ginger, Hedychium coronarium,|
hence the shape of the white flower. It actually
smells like a gardenia flower, super sweet!
The leaves smell like spicy ginger when crushed.
|A variety of newly transplanted orchids tied|
to the Florida native Simpson Stopper tree.
|Vanda's & Dendrobiums attached to our Montgomery|
Palms. Mixed in with the orange plume flower,
a variety of heliconias & Bee Hive Ginger.
|Cattleya Green Emerald 'Orchid Queen'|
Absolutely love this orchid! Smells divine!
There are two more unopened blooms
in the front right corner.
|C. Green Emerald 'Orchid Queen', easy orchid to grow|
with 3-4" flowers, super fragrant, gorgeous colors,
and thick waxy petals. A real show stopper!
|This is how long the actually orchid is &|
how small the root system it. Here it is just starting
to grow the flower spike earlier this week.
|My best friend bought this most unusual|
orchid for my birthday six years ago at the
Redlands International Orchid Festival.
If you haven't been to the Redlands Int'
Orchid festival, it is a must go!!! Yes, it is
drive but well worth it! I have acquired alot of
my collection from that show!
WISHING YOU ALL A MOST AWESOME WEEKEND!!!
