Crinum Bulbs. 3.16.18
Whoa Chris! You have been busy, and your efforts will be super when they are all producing and in bloom. Do you collect rainwater for your plants?
Daniel, a friend of a friend gave me a plastic grocery bag full of Iris bulbs (?) or roots (?). Anyway I didn't know the color and wasn't sure where I wanted to plant them - and of course had never grown them. To simply get them in the ground, I planted them in corrner next to A/C unit and figured I could dig them out and replant at a later day in appropriate place. They grew! They are blooming a beautiful purple color! I agree, they don't need to be babied.
My mode of doing away with grass has been to put down cardboard and cover with wood mulch from recycling center. I did same with Iris - lots of cardboard to kill grass and weeds, lots of mulch, watered well and ignored.
Kathy, good luck and happy growing your little peach trees. I'm thoroughly enjoying my nectarine.
We have had more rain over the past three days - a real deluge late last evening. It is breathtaking to see how green things are and how rapidly things are beginning to bloom. I feel as if I've moved to a new state each time I hear the patter of rain on the windows. :)
Forests! - a luxury to be able to look at them every day! But I think the fires are scary. Many leafy trees here in town, and there are parks and some woods at the other side of the country.
I see we're at about the same degree of latitude, the only difference is your continental climate - less clouds and more extreme temperatures.
Nice roof garden Chris!
Pictures at last! The first two of my roof garden and number three of my old kaffir lily with its annual explosion of colour.
So you don't really get used to the sun too! And perhaps you also walk at the shady side of the street.
Chris, one word - Sunblock. I have a large tube of #60 sunblock sitting on my bathroom sink and apply to my face and exposed arms, etc. every morning. In spite of daily application I had a small carcinoma removed from my face last year when I went for annual dermatologist appt. When the temps go over 90 I began my summer hibernation with my books and crafts. :)
