I missed posting these this morning after I walked around and took a few shots outside of some of my treasures. The day passed by, and it has slipped over into Jan. 2 before I could make this post. Oh well...had a wonderful day. Perfect weather here in south Florida...cool, breezy, and clear skies. I just had to show you all a few things...
My blooming Kalanchoe blossfeldiana:
A vine that is growing on the porch...I've been training it in and around and through the chairs! Ha! The silly part of me (a big part) loves this so much!!!
My hibiscus are finally blooming!!!
Some freeloading white periwinkles coming up in between my tires...but do I mind? Naw...
A few succulents shots:
I believe these are blooms on a "Mother In Laws Tongue". Anyone know for sure? I couldn't get close enough to see what they were coming off of, but husband said he saw some earlier in another location in the yard. These are along my back fence.
A few last blooms on a chysanthemum:
The ti plants are blooming too!
These fall out nearly year round from our back yard Sapodilla tree:
Some new eggplants coming along...Gretel variety:
A day late and a dollar short...these beautiful bells came just after Christmas...maybe to ring in the new year??? This is my Kalanchoe tubiflora.
Zinnias and Impatients in two tires:
And, last but not least...my potato experiment...which is going very well so far! This shot is looking down into an outdoor plastic garbage can with potato plants inside. I have 6 inches of Miracle Gro soil in bottom of can (there are drainage holes covered with screen in bottom of can). Then as the plants grow taller, I am putting all natural pine wood shavings (instead of soil) in there to give the plants a medium to grow tons of potatos in. I fertilized with Miracle Gro Liquid water soluable stuff, and they grew about 6 inches in 3 days!!! So far, so good. Am really going to be hoping for an awesome haul from this can in a few months! I will have pics and lots of friends and family for the unveiling!!!
Happy upcoming week to you all! xoxo- Julie
