The odd summer is continuing onward, bringing more fog and a morning with light drizzle. It's still cooler day by day, almost like summer decided it was done out here before August is. Whichever way the weather decides to go, many of the plants are growing like it's spring again.
Even through a touch-and-go week, the plants are blooming up happily! The curious cactus has put up a new set of leaves, while the wildflowers treat everything like a competitor for sun.
been. For one thing, I have a confession to make - I left my plants alone nearly all week. I went on a long vacation. I didn't know what the weather would be like, and I took a gamble on how to water them.
It looks like the plants are focusing on growing leaves this week. The flowers are sticking around, the plants are the same height - but there's just so much more green! I love it.
Spring is showering new growth on all the plants in the garden! I couldn't even find space to fit the photos of the cress in this post, let alone growing space on my balcony. Most everything else seems to be doubling in size each week, if they haven't already finished growing.
Spring is an unstoppable force in the garden. The things that flower won't stop flowering. The things that produce food aren't producing food currently - the tomatoes haven't blossomed, the squash refuse to grow taller, and the cress has gone to seed. Still, there's plenty of new plants in the garden, and plenty of greenery to enjoy every morning!
The garden is hopping right along as Spring gets underway here! All the plants are racing upward toward the sun, and even the Ginkgo has decided it's time to wake up.
Back with another Six on Saturday post! In for this week, we've got plants getting ready for Spring - Polka Dots flowering, Sunflower seedlings, Grape cuttings, and Garden Plans.
The Polka Dot Plant (Hypoestes phyllostachya) is a fast-growing, self-seeding, pruning-loving houseplant of many colors. You know them when you see them! Check here for a detailed guide on taking care of them.
A Six on Saturday post for February 6th, 2021. This week saw some Corkscrew Rush and Polka Dot Plants get transplanted, the Christmas Tree is alive (still), and some new sprouts in the garden.
