Man, I’ve been meaning to do a blog post for so long. I have a backlog on my camera. One thing that’s happened since the recent rain is *KA POW*
I have never seen a feather grass this tall. It’s huge!I expect it start shambling around the yard ala Uncle Fester.
Perhaps I should buy it a pair of glasses and a nice brown derby.
And on a similar day I found this fantastic little guy. I love moths. The hummingbird moths have been all over the dianthus, but I can’t get a picture of them. Too hummingbird like. And as you know by now, my photography skills are substandard. It’s genetic. Just be glad the thing I’m describing is in the picture.
Isn’t this lady cool though? She looks almost Plasticine.
I think my favorite part of having a xeric yard is suddenly becoming aware of all these super-cool bugs, animals, and birds I had no clue existed.
So I was dividing some Liripoe the other day. Also because of the rain. It had suddenly become like 52 plants in a 4” square area. I think it looks pretty nice.
Anyway I pulled out some feather grass that was in this side of the bed and transporting it to the middle of the bed where nothing was growing and *clink*. What the? *scraaaaape *. My trowel hit brick. So apparently part of the reason the tree doesn’t grow so well in the flowerbed is this:
I haven’t fully unearthed it. Had to get the monkeys to bed. I guess this was a plant stand?
It’s now a plant stand. At least until I pull those bricks out. Always something interesting to dig out of this garden.
Most of it brick.
And finally a not so great picture of the pomegranate tree in my neighbors yard. It may be in their yard, but most of the beauty comes arching over the fence into my lovely sunshine. I could definitely see adding another one of these. The fruit and blooms are spectacular.
Back to the weeding today. And trying to figure out what to do about my Lantana… man my Lantanta is ugly right now. I’ll snap a picture as long as you don’t judge me.
