Our Mimosa trees are in bloom! I’m soooo glad. Michael thought they might be dead since they had zero signs of life in May and we usually see something by then (at least that is how we remember it).
Ours have gotten quite large now.
When we moved here, it was just a little thing, similar in size to this one. It was a bit bigger though because it has another trunk or two, meaning that it is really a few trees grown together in a clump. But it sure has grown. The one we have by the house has really grown too. We transplanted the one in front of the house from my mom’s house.
The Bradford pear trees we have were this big when Mom and Dad gave them to us shortly after we moved out here.
This is my rose “bush.”
See this sunflower patch on the left. These self-seeded (or he birds did it).
I’ve been trying to keep on top of the weeds to keep them from overtaking the garden but I’m not doing a very good job at it. I was out pulling weeds for about 40 minutes the other day. I pulled so many weeds, my fingers got stained. This is my fingers after washing them a couple times.
It finally faded and came clean but it took a while. I’ll probably have to get out there and do some more come Monday (this weekend Brian, Lauren, and Liam are coming, so I probably won’t do it until Monday) because it rained a lot yesterday and that will probably make them grow more.
My oregano has flowered. I don’t know what that means exactly.
Well, I’ve rambled enough for today. I enjoyed seeing the growth of our plants/trees. I hope you did. And if you have any suggestions for my poor rose “bushes,” please share it with me in the comments.
Until next time, God bless,
