In the Dirt and Seeing Red

June 21, 2012

There  is a whole lot of processing going on here…

These plants are in the backyard of a plant enthusiast.  He is an avid gardener and has a lot of action going on. Flowers,cactus, succulents and unusual tropical trees.

This is our Geranium that has come  to life after getting a little beat up during our move. It survived a couple of snowfalls.  Today I did some transplanting.

      For us summer enters with a bang and then we complain! It probably sneaks in quietly in your part of the world.. Thank you!

    I love living vicariously through your earthy adventures! I can imagine that gardening would be very relaxing and “grounding”, and intensely satisfying when you see the results of your hard work grow into a beautiful, healthy living thing.
