The Escobania Missourieusis, or it common name, Mansfield Cemetery Cactus offsets that Claude sent from Texas have not grown a bit since last year, but at least they are alive! The other cactus and plant he sent have passed on. Sorry, Claude, I did my best!
I potted the Angel's Trumpet (Brugmansia) cuttings that Dee from A Desert Observer sent to me last October. I rooted the cuttings in water and then planted them in potting mix. These photos was taken in March. These cuttings have really taken off, so I consider them a success!
Here they are now, and growing really fast. I can't wait till they bloom this summer! If I ever remember to look at my list when I shop, I will buy some Epsom salts to feed them once a month. Thanks, Dee!
My Ultra Dwarf Plum tree has also grown! This photo was taken in March. I Am looking for a good organic fertilizer for the tree and my vegetable garden, although it looks like it doesn't need it!
My favorite tree--Desert Museum Palo Verde, is filling out and it grew fast this spring. The photo above was taken last May.
Hubby continues doing well. Almost time for a review of his progress. It is hot enough here that we are already thinking about our annual family camping trip the last week of June, and we want to be free of chemo treatments so we can enjoy ourselves.
Summer is the time when one sheds one's tensions with one's clothes,
and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit.
A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief that all's right with the world.
