The Writer is at a big golf tournament interviewing Important People this weekend, so I thought I would show you around here a bit.
I'm determined to have a better garden this year after my very disappointing one last year.
Because of the wildlife we share life with, I have to grow my flowers, citrus, and herbs in pots on the deck.
We have hungry and destructive squirrels, armadillos, raccoons, and deer that consider my plants gourmet snacks. Or teething biscuits.
Most of them don't come up on the deck. Yet.
The caged plants (far right and left) are lemon and lime trees.
The squirrels eat the leaves and buds if they can get at them.
That's why they are wrapped in chicken wire.
rosemary and thyme
catnip for Rosie
Can you believe these beauties
are just lowly petunias?
Salvia for the hummingbirds --
single and double impatiens
We cut pine poles yesterday to fence the second critter-proof raised bed.
I'll show you my thriving beds next time.
Meanwhile, Rosie says hello!
