I had drafted a small post to let you know of my whereabouts, and it went a little something like this....
"Tomorrow.........will start the ball rolling for my summertime maintenance chores......days of hard work starting in the early morn and finishing up around dinner time.
I will probably be too tired to blog as usual, but rest assured that I will have tutorials of every project that I undertake during the period."
Those words are over two weeks old....my how time flies.
I am smack dab in the middle of a big project which I hope to have finished by next weekend.
I did manage to find a little time to wander the garden to check out what's happening before starting my work routine for the day yesterday.
Here's what I found:
"Heck Mum, something's wrong with your lettuce!"The lettuce (both the green and the red variety ) had bolted.
Thank goodness I had just planted some romaine lettuce seedlings, so I will still be able to enjoy fresh salads.
My okra plants were flowering, and then I looked closer.....
..........my first okras.
The Portlandia was showing off it beautiful big white flowers.
The heady scent of this unknown jasmine was almost too much to bear.....my nose was intoxicated.
The Duke of Tuscany did not want to be left out of the party.
The blue butterfly Clerdendron ugandese was not far behind....the delicate flowers should be opened by next week.
The Lakeview Jasmine was laden with tons of flowers....a total delight for the bees.....I didn't want to get too close in case I was stung.
After that wonderful walk, it was time to get my work day started....no rest for the weary they say....I'm enjoying every minute of my project.
