Today was getting our hands dirty. My critters and the birds around the garden love my plants. It has been a struggle to grow plants from seeds, especially sunflowers and beans. To help the plants survive from birds and critters we found out nurseries helped. Once the plants develop a few leaves in our sunContinue reading “Nursery”
Another brown thumb plant says my plant app. But I did kill one of them last year. It was very tempting to pick more of these today at the nursery but settled by just taking pictures. It is time I maintain what I have already. Ragtag prompt was lilac and I thought I was hittingContinue reading “Fragrant Planatain Lily”
The flowers are tiny but they smell so good. My plant finder says it is an invasive one, and yes they are from my experience too. They grow really big and there is no maintenance. The early morning breeze spreads it sweet smell around. For Cee’s Flower of the Day!
Excited to share my jasmine buds today morning. With all the hot weather I thought it would have bloomed, but not yet. I have to be patient. This is a tropical plant and had to be brought in for winter. This one survived this winter. For Cee’s FOTD

For Cee’s Flower of the day It’s March first, and it is the first day of meteorological spring. Got my first plant for the season. I didn’t know primroses are perennials. They love cold weather and like to be in the shade. Hopefully this plant should survive in my garden.
It has been a challenge to grow sunflowers since birds feed on the seeds as soon as I plant them. Sometimes I think why I should put in that effort 😂! I have see some yards with these huge sunflowers and I really want to knock on their door for advice. The above sunflower definitelyContinue reading “Sunflowers”
As Christmas rolls around most of the TV channels change their mode from slaying to sleighing so fewer Criminal Minds or CSI kind of shows to Christmas movies.
