We have a hard time growing flowers in our woods. But we try…
Yesterday I saw and BOUGHT a Hibiscus bush to plant! I know…I know. Hibiscus plants need sun! I studied our yard and placed the plant right where I think it’ll get the most sun. Just look at my beautiful Hibiscus today! It wasn’t blooming yesterday! We have some neighbors with a large bush in their front yard. It’s just beautiful! So maybe I can have one too!
Okay, we planted it last evening. First we went to Lowe’s and bought some good soil with fertilizer in it. We followed the directions, exactly… This morning another flower opened up! I just hope I can keep it living…year after year after year!!!
Another project I’m working on is in our back yard. Consumer’s Power put two ugly yellow line guards at the back of our yard so folks won’t run into their wires. I hate those yellow guards. We had planted a Pine Tree seventeen years ago to hide them. But this summer Consumer’s came and cut our Pine Tree down! Those yellow guards showed up like sore thumbs! This picture shows the man half way up the tree.
So…we had a piece of fencing that I dragged out of our burning pile a couple of years ago. It was just leaning out on the far side of our pole barn, waiting for me to find a good place to use it! I found the place! Rob is a strong son! Even Jerry got into the act! He’s pulling those nasty vines down from other trees…if only they would grow up those ugly yellow thingy’s!
So now my next project will be to wash down and paint the fence. Next spring I hope to plant some flowering vine’s to grow up the fence. Something that will come up every year! Stay tuned to hear and hopefully see progress and a beautiful flowered vine!
