Six On Saturday In My Own Back Yard

Good Morning SOS’s and Happy Saturday! Today, as promised, I am showing my garden in January and my Christmas Amaryllis! The Featured Photo was when the “A” was just blooming and look at it now! I’ve had to prop it up and tie it together! When I go out I am always checking the neighbor’s…

Six On Saturday: It’s All About the Pink

In the beginning there was green…………it’s the hibiscus……..named “Berry Awesome”………. Then a giant bud of pink came on the scene…….. pink, pink and more pink, ok and a touch of yellow……… Pink Makes the World Go Round Sometimes you just need a blush of pink……….. like on my “Café au Lait” dahlia………. And sometimes you…

Six On Saturday: The Garden Is Lookin’ Good!

It’s been like winter here the last few days! Rain and temps in the low sixties………that is winter for us. Kinda topsy turvy, that’s why I did my feature photo this week in the Tiny Planet App on my IPhone. And then my leaves on the Agapanthus looked good so I Waterlogued them, another App….

Six On Saturday: An Update to the Garden

The last SOS that I wrote about MY GARDEN concerned the new fence and all the woes we had! Well the fence and all it entailed has all been completed to our satisfaction and the internet, garden lights and sprinklers are working as they should! To say that we will NEVER replace that fence again…

Six On Saturday: Let’s Hope the Digging is Done!

It’s definitely been one of those weeks, let’s make that three weeks. It all started when we decided to have our wooden fence replaced and went downhill from there. We have underground cable (as in Internet service) going through our yard. We have underground lighting in our garden. We have an underground sprinkler system in…

Six On Saturday: The Wee Ones and More!

Good Morning everyone! I am looking forward to the weekend and predicted warm (70’s) weather! I have been reading Elizabeth Lawrence’s book, A Southern Garden. She is so right when she says we do not have four seasons. We have all the seasons in every month. 40 degrees one morning……….70 degrees the next……….one night a…

Six On Saturday: The Home Edition

Weather: 48 degrees and rainy………….Good Morning! We are getting a good rain this morning, so it’s a good thing we got a lot done yesterday in the garden. I do not know how there could possibly be a leaf left on the ground, but we sacked another 4 bags yesterday and pruned and raked and…

Six On Saturday: Now Where Were We?

Good morning SOS friends! It has been a beautiful week in the 70’s here! Yikes, that is very warm for this time of year! So, we have been making hay while the sun shines so to speak……….well mostly raking and pruning and raking and digging and hauling ……. My camellias are all in fine form……this…

Six On Saturday: Is It Spring Yet?

We’ve been busy in the garden this week! At the end of every day we had this look! We went plant hunting……and now in my hallway, we are growing these, since the weather turned cold for a few days……. and my favorite plant that just kept speaking to me at the garden center……….BananAppeal! The Featured…

Six On Saturday: My Eye Is On You!

And you, and you, and you! In the past weeks I have written about a critter or critters or bugs eating my pansies……..The bugs were earwigs and thanks to the Propagator, who told me that I had earwigs in my pansies, I soon remedied that problem, I think.  But, I also had mature big plants…
