A tiny tour of the flowers blooming in my yard right now….
The first is my Hibiscus. The name of this Hibiscus is Clair de Lune and means “moonlight”.
This is the second bloom that has bloomed since I got it a month ago from Home Depot’s clearance shelf. It was sad looking at first. I wasn’t even sure what color it was going to be when it bloomed, the card fell off long ago.
I decided to show you all how pretty it is. Just beginning to open..
To this.. It is a tropical Hibiscus.
I couldn’t help it, here is one more.
Then this hen and chick succulent.
A fuzzy one I got off the plant at my daughter in laws house.. It is also a type of hen and chick.
And this striped succulent that my son brought home one day.. It has babies that come out on the stalk and fall off, by the thousands…
Pansies.. And a flower I love because of the smell, it is in pink and called Flock.
The top off of a pineapple is on the left side, while it’s baby is on the right. The baby will give me a pineapple this summer and the parent plant will give me one in two years. It takes longer for a top to give fruit than a baby.
And have you ever had to deal with pests in the garden? Here is my number one nemesis. TRIXIE my cat, they are supposed to be herbivores right? Or are they an omnivore? Has anyone ever had a problem with these rare pests, I mean pets… Looks innocent enough right?
You will see what I mean.. my Trixie loves her veggies. Here is my best looking Broccoli plant.
I know, looks great right? lol
She claims innocence…
And you could almost believe it..
If I hadn’t caught her in the act several times.. AT first she wouldn’t let the paparazzi in, now we are up to three snaps. This is the limit.. lol
Thanks for taking time to look at the flowers and stuff around the house, and of course my silly cat.
Have a great day!
