A Flowerbed Make-Over
February 21, 2011
When we first moved here we build a little flower garden out of rocks around the small oak tree in our front yard. We did this to disguise the mound and stump that was left of the other tree we cut down. Well over the last few days it got a make-over.
Stewart pulled out the chain saw and cut off the stump we had tried to hide so long ago. “You know, oak is a lot harder to cut than pine!” he protested.
I put potting soil in on top of the fabric. Now we are ready for the plants. We went to Lowes and found so many interesting plants. I doubt all of them should be planted outdoors but oh well we are going to give it a try. The strongest shall survive.
Kalanchoe Maternity Plant “Mother of Thousands”
Argentine Opuntia “Cuija”
I put on gloves hoping to not get too many thorns in my hands. Needless to say on I still got pricked but not near as bad as I would have had I not adorned the gloves. I was careful to slide the cacti out of their little pots so that I would not damage them or me.
With all the plants in place it was time to add my white rock.
I think it turned out really good for my very first cactus garden. A little patch of beauty in my yard. Now I can enjoy watching the birds feed out of my little “swing” feeder and bathe in the bird bath. We also have a small bird house and a humming bird feeder in the tree. Now that it is done I long to sneak out in the morning before everyone wakes up and sit on my porch, enjoying the peace and quiet, watching, and hopefully taking a few pictures to identify of the birds that come to visit.
