If anyone would like to share their own gardening adventures with me
- large or small, inside or out -
I would love to see them.
Just leave a link to your post in the comments.
Last year our little three and a half foot Orange tree gave us, what was for it, a bumper crop. We picked seven lovely, sweet Oranges. This year the tree has only four. My reading tells me that it is a natural cycle for trees to alternate large and small harvests.
Here you can see another California Poppy sprouting next to an Agave. It isn't ready to bloom yet and I wonder how long into Fall/Winter they will persist. Maybe they'll make it all the way to next Spring.
I found this little Dragonfly nestled in the Bougainvillea when I went out to water early Wednesday morning. You can't tell from the picture, but he was about six inches long and had a wing span a little longer. It was about fifty degrees and he wasn't really feeling like getting up. He stayed there for another couple of hours then left. I guess everyone slows down when the weather cools.
