Garden favorites.

Some of my favorite garden beauties today, loving the tiny dainty little flowers of my Tilo (Linden) plant. The Asparagus Fern looks like it dances in the wind and the Spanish Moss reminds me of Savannah.

Beautiful spring day in Miami.

During my morning walk around the garden, the plants were not calling me today. It was the pool that was saying, get in, get in. Is still way to cold for swimming, but I can't wait. I usually do get a lot done on hot days. I get in and out to cool down  and before I know it, all the garden work is done. 
Not today, my plans are to hang around the house and get some crafting done. But you know how that goes when you make plans.

Spring cleaning in the garden.

I really should clean my pots every spring but I don't. It's best to do it every season in order get rid of  pest and all kinds of bacteria. I use a bit of Clorox to a gallon of water. My garden is not that big and I have gotten rid of a lot of the terracotta pots, I really have no excuses. I'm so enjoying some of the new garden decor pieces that my sister Mayra passed on to me, love them.  James got me some of my favorite potting soil, the Miracle Grow with the 6 month fertilizer in it.  This stuff is worth every penny and it makes me happy. Can't wait to dirty them up again.  







You can't see it too well in this picture but this is where my rain gutter discharges. I save all the broken dishes and some color glass, it help with the drainage and I love how the broken china looks.
