Spring has sprung!
It's been pretty warm here, the last few days.
Monday, we got up to 94 here at Patchwork Garden.
A 'cold front' came through, and yesterday was only 86.
Last night, there were storms in the area.
Some got pretty good sized hail.
We didn't. But, we did get .16 inches of rain.
It all helps.
We have very few blooms, so far. Those nights in the 20s, do take their toll.
But, there's lots of new growth going on.
There are several new fans on this palm.
I didn't write the name down.
So, we just call it the 'Island Palm', since it's in the Island Bed.
And, I think the Yucca Rostrata is getting bigger.
We have a lot...A LOT...of Mexican Feathergrass babies.
Some will be moved to other places.
But, some will just end up in the compost.
Speaking of compost...
I dug out some from the bottom of our pile to spread in the Veggie Garden.
I poured out a bucket-full, and found this guy.
I know...he looks like a regular grubworm.
But, this guy is a little bit bigger.
Usually the size of one of those leaves, this guy was about THREE INCHES long!
I put down my glove, so you could see the size.
I think he liked the compost.
Sorry. I didn't want to even imagine the June Bug he might become.
So, he became bird food.
I hope you're having a wonderful first day of Spring.
