Entry for April 22, 2007
We worked on the landscaping yesterday, and are taking today off to just hang out.
I am planning to knit and blog; DD is doing school work; and all hubby wants to do is lay out in the sun. Unfortunately DD gets the raw end, but she wants to be a Councelor In Training (CIT) for Girl Scouts this summer, and she needs to get ahead on her school work to take the summer off (we homeschool, and do a year round schedule) - so that means doubling up on her current rate of attack.
Here is one of the many "desert" plants that we have in our yard. It's called a desert rose, and it is blooming like crazy. (I know, not so good a shot. I took it straight down at the plant instead of from the side. This was also prior to the re mulching yesterday) I was surprised to learn that a lot of cacti, and other desert plants (like the centuries) do quite well here in Florida. I thought that they would get way too much water and then root rot. But, I guess because of our sandy soil, they actually do beautifully. Our prickly pear seems to grow another piece every other day!
