Spring has arrived, although the weather hasn’t really been sunshine and rainbows.
But my plants don’t seem to mind because everything is soooo green! Like literally, everything is growing and flowering. Even my fiddle fig, a plant species that is notorious for being fickle and easy to kill. I don’t want to jinx it, but in the last couple of weeks four new leaves have come in.
Well, five if you count this itty bitty one.
This is an impressive development for a plant that I’ve had a year with absolutely zero previous growth.
Things in the backyard have progressed too.
Remember that wall of climbing jasmine I planted last summer?
It looked like this:
Now it looks like this:
I love it!
My other jasmine have grown in a lot too.
And I finally got around to planting some on the opposite side:
We also had red tips recently planted all along our fence line to create a nice hedge in the future.
As always there are still a few more projects to complete, but now that it’s finally spring we can start working on them!
(Oh, and I forgot to mention…2 weeks until vacation! Woo hoo!)
