So, I finally finished up in the office and headed outdoors to prune the living hell out of everything. For my own uses later, here’s the list:
1) sage – both
2) lavender – Spanish only
3) roses – backyard only
4) passion-fruit vine
5) euryops (daisy bush)
6) Japanese eggplant…will it live?
7) whirling butterfly plant (guara)
9) rosemary – both
10) grape vine
11) Chinese wisteria (vines widdershins – of course)
12) lilac – both (look up info…they’re sad)
The pictures I promised of all the springiness:
The hyacinth I planted a few years ago:
The green onions I planted for one of my first blog posts:
Lilac bud. I will have to do some research on these little plants. They haven’t done well and it’s time I do something about it.
This spectacular bloom is the most exotic looking flower in the garden right now. Can you guess what it is? The common clover: most people pull it out as weeds…people are sooooo silly!
In honor of the season of fertility, I’m sharing a picture of my penis cactus. Six months of the year it does not receive adequate sun. The other six months it does not receive adequate water. I believe both are appropriate and those of you with penises know exactly what I mean. Reality is what it is and I leave these cacti where they stand in honor of that:
I wish you could have smelled this jasmine. In fact, I trimmed the rosemary, lavender and jasmine all at once. The backyard smelled so amazing. Screw the rapture, I made paradise my own damned self!
And now we celebrate a day that is more complete:
I have much to celebrate this evening..my list, for my own purposes later:
