Here is a sneak peak of the new block wall color. It's Sky Blue by Laura Ashley. One section sucked up a whole lot of paint! I need one more coat, but I am going to get a spray painter before I paint the other three panels. I have the three colors picked out--just waiting for the urge to paint. I'm refinishing the front door at the moment and I think painting the block wall would have been a whole lot easier! Good thing the weather is perfect--all I have for now is a security screen door. I just keep the lights off and the TV turned way down so as not to disturb the neighbors. If I had the air conditioner going, it would run up one heck of a bill! The door should be finished in a couple days.
The tomato plant that keeps on giving. I planted this Husky Cherry patio tomato last August and have enjoyed tomatoes almost every day since!
An Ice Plant in full bloom in my daughter's garden. I never had one that lived more than a few weeks.
Every Agave along the parkway has sent up flower stalks. It is quite a sight! Some are so heavy they are tipping over and lying on the sidewalks.
Need help identifying the vine from my daughter's garden. She bought this untagged, fast growing vine in a gallon container last fall from Lowe's, and it has bloomed almost every day. I love the bright orange flowers, and wouldn't it look great growing up on my Sky Blue wall? I can't find any like it, and Lowe's can't identify it to reorder! It probably won't grow for me anyway--I am very frugal with my watering. My Son-In-Law has a green thumb and a large water bill, but I would like to give it a try!
Still waiting for ANY cactus to bloom!!!! Maybe in May.
