We have been working in our yard for the past several weeks trying to grow grass where everyone told us grass would NOT grow! That is one reason for the “limbing up” of the below tree which I have mentioned in a prior post. We were trying to not only make it so you could actually SEE our house, but also so the sun could shine under this tree.
As you can see in the photo below the grass is growing in nicely!! We have watered and watered and WATERED this grass and have been told that we will have to continue until at least August. Hopefully by then their little roots will be deep enough to survive the hot humid summers we have here in the South
You can still see some of the wheat grass we covered the seed with to keep them in place. I don’t have a before photo of this, but suffice to say there was NO grass here. The prior owners had put pine straw under the tree over and over again to sort of mask the fact that there was no grass. But I was determined to grow it!!
The front porch is shaping up. The small rabbit on the left I got at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago and I spray painted it and planted some impatience in the little basket she was holding…
I have had the ficus tree for YEARS AND YEARS!! I bring her in every winter and put her out every summer. I seriously need to do some pruning on her, but I just let her be….
Those things are growing like wildfire and I predict before too much longer, the rabbit’s head will not be visible!
See the tall ugly skinny tree?? I don’t know what it is, but what I DO know is that I do NOT like it! It is just plain old UGLY!! I do not see one attractive thing about that tree. SO ~ I had Steve yank it out…..
And I planted a hydrangea here instead! My favorite flowers are hydrangeas! These are pink and they are LOADED with buds!
