I trimmed the Nandina this morning. Some of the seed pod branches are getting quite large. I may have a forest on my hands next year!
It's supposed to be 83 today. Yesterday it got to 90. It's cooling down a bit. One year it snowed on Easter... You never know what's coming next here.
This is yesterday's gardening... I took three pieces of my lavender plant to see if I could root them and make more. It took more than a month to do this one...but it had a LOT of nice roots. The other two are still trying. I may yet have another lavender bush without paying for it.
Tessie thinks that it will help if she stays there and watches it grow. Every now and then I hear her whisper... "Come on! Grow!" It's a VERY loud whisper...
I also harvested some bark that was about to fall off of the Mesquite and Fig trees. Now all I have to do is think of a way to incorporate them into something for the fairy garden...
It is way to nice outside to spend the day inside. I am going back out there for a while. I have orders to stay out of the sun, so I am thinking that re potting plants, on the porch, should be the plan.
Back to work.
See you tomorrow.
