We scattered grass seed in the part of the yard where the old trees were recently cut, and, just four days later, baby grass is springing up everywhere!
Our huge red cedar tree tree is filled with wind chimes, bird feeders, and hanging ferns. It is our visual and sound focus as we sit in the screen porch each morning with coffee, hot chocolate, and English muffins. The ferns seem to have doubled in size this week.
|We love our biggest cedar tree.|
With no freeze or frost this past winter, many annual plants lived and are having a glorious new season for free. The nasturtiums kept blooming all winter, but now they are really showing us what they are meant to do in more tropical climates.
|Nasturtiums bring free blooms for the second year.|
|The Asiatic Lily colors are brilliant.|
And...after looking like they were dead for sure, the banana trees are beginning to pop up the first of their fast-growing leaves. They will be eight to ten feet tall by the end of the summer.
|We have four varieties if bananas. If we have a frost free winter, we may even get bananas.|
