Last weekend was sunny and warm, spring was coming all around the yard. It only made sense to bring some of that spring inside. I raided our yard and even though it’s has barely started getting green, I found a few flowers and branches to bring in.
This post is about succulents, raiding our own yard for flowers, how TwoPlusCute passed 1000 pageviews in a day (1308 to be exact – but who’s counting) and my technology breakthrough that will – undoubtedly – awe people.
Arborvitae (tree of life – such a cool name) are hardy and pretty forgiving trees, making them a friendly choice for novice gardeners like us. To test our hands on, we planted one last Spring and a year later, it is still alive (applause please!) and getting bigger. It is a success!
It was truly easy to plant it once we stopped worrying about perfection and in this post, I will tell you how exactly we went about it and the nasty surprise we came to find while planting our tree.
We removed a stump. It was way less work than we expected and now we can mow that area easily. (This is a dreadfully written intro. I give it an F.)
Aaanyway, I bought Epsom salt to try the pinterest tip for removing tree stumps. Allegedly you drill holes, add watered Epsom to the holes and wait for a quick-ish natural decay. Well, we didn’t even have to add the salt!
Our Daylilies (Hemerocalis Fulva) bloomed in late June due to the belated spring. The flowers look gorgeous, towering 3-4 feet (about a meter) tall.
Last year I performed the mistake to cut some for vases. I am sure seasoned gardeners will laugh at this. You see, Daylilies are named so for a reason. This year, that I grew wiser after cleaning all the mess last year) I will let them bloom and fade, right where they are. 🙂
