So I’m a little late celebrating Earth Day (April 22). But in honor of our lovely planet and my very local environment, here’s some updates on how my plants are growing.
On March 30th, I seeded the bald patch of ground where the old porch used to be.
My climbing rose bush is showing some signs of life! If you remember, when I received it it was a bare root; so it basically looked like a sick twig.
Lastly I transplanted a red knockout rose bush from by the front steps to a container in the back yard. After some major pruning and feeding, the plant started blooming immediately. Well one bloom. It still counts!
I also transferred some “annuals” that actually came back. This whole climate change thing saved me $3.50 on a tray of Verbena. Thanks massive amounts of pollution! I added some extra Petunias, to keep the old plants company.
So that’s it for now! It’s been raining nonstop the last few days, so it’s prevented us from working out in the yard.
