Focusing on the little projects for the time being gives me some sense of accomplishment.
|I've been doing some judicious pruning throughout the garden too. Here, Agave 'Jaws' was in danger of being swallowed by Leucadendron 'Wilson's Wonder' until I trimmed the latter plant back.|
|I still haven't pulled out all my zinnias but I've already tucked several Lisianthus (Eustoma grandiflorum) into the bed in the foreground where Dahlia 'Enchantress' once stood|
|I gave one of my large succulent pots a major rehab. I couldn't bring myself to throw the Dyckia out so I painstakingly pulled the plant apart and included 3 divisions in the rehabbed pot. We'll see if they survive the experience.|
|Other pots in the same area could use a refresh too but they'll have to wait their turn|
Meanwhile, a neighbor seems to be working on a project too. My husband and brother-in-law guessed it's a guest house but, as construction proceeds, it looks more and more like a gazebo to me.
|What's your guess?|
Planting is usually best done during the cool season here (October through April) but our temperatures are stuck on the warm side at present with no sign of rain in the forecast. Like the remodel, I'm hoping for change on that front soon.
