I am way behind posting on here.
I'm late posting the
to share with Heather at
But, since most of this garden is foliage,
I'll combine the Wide Shot with
Foliage Follow-Up, with
This winter, has made a mess of some plants, like this Sago Palm.
There's still some green, so hoping it'll perk up with new growth.
The same for this Foxtail Fern, on the porch.
I've left the frozen parts, for protection. But, I think it's about time
to get them outta there.
There are some places on this Golden Barrel, that look a bit bad.
But, it's still firm. This poor thing was under water, for about six hours,
when we had the Halloween Flood.
Along with the cold, I'm surprised it looks this good.
Other things look almost un-touched by Winter.
This 'prickly pear' could be the wave of the future,
in Central Texas gardens.
The Rosemary and Mexican Feathergrass, have held up really well.
We replaced the Color Guard Yuccas that had either washed away,
or been messed with, by the deer. Deer love to pull things up.
That's why we have old tomato cages over these.
I found a Sotol at Natural Gardener, on sale.
The girl said it just had 'cosmetic damage'.
Hope she was right. There was only ONE good root, when
we planted this. Then, it blew over, with our 40 mph wind, after this photo.
Now, it also has a tomato cage.
And, the Rose Jasmine has been blooming.
We got a new bird bath, that we nestled in a Gold Dust Acuba.
I like the colors together.
These bags say 'mulch' on the back.
But, these are 2 cubic foot bags of garden soil.
We spread 20 of them...along with some bags of compost.
I'm hoping that Spring will really arrive soon, and I can stop taking
these in and out of the garage.
guess who needs to go to the beauty parlor.
It's been too long.
That's what's going on here.
Be sure to visit Heather and Pam, for more good gardens.
Can anyone tell me what this is?
There are several coming up. I'd say Texas Persimmon. But, these have been green all winter.
Texas Persimmon doesn't stay green....the mature trees, anyway.
The acorn is to show the size of the leaf.
Hope you're having a good weekend.
