A Garden Post for GwenPosted: November 23, 2011 Filed under: Blogging, Family | Tags: garden, plants, produce 12 Comments
After yesterday’s fantastic family fiasco (still mostly unresolved, but at least my brother is okay today), I decided it’s definitely time for another lighthearted post of frolicking frivolity. And I’ll dedicate it to Gwen, because she posts such great garden pictures!
So I’ll share with you some beauties from the gardens here. Please, please, my gardening friends, forgive my lack of technical knowledge. It’s not that I have a brown thumb, just an apathetic thumb.
From the front yard, a pretty yellow flower. See what I mean about technical knowledge?
Followed by a pink flower. I’d call them both roses, but I have no idea how accurate that would actually be.
The tree in the backyard produces some of the best grapefruits I’ve ever had! I do know my food plants, once the food part is evident.
And then I turned around just in time to catch a V of birds. I’m also not much of an ornithologist.
My mom also started canning jalapeños and making hot sauce.
She also uses habaneros. My other brother loves him some hot peppers.
My sister just made it here, and my other brother and his girlfriend should be here soon. Fingers crossed there’s no more excitement!!
YAY for gardening! Your roses are beautiful, I am jealous of your fruit tree, and I really want to grow chilies next year.
I’m hoping the family stuff calms down soon! Thanksgiving wouldn’t be Thanksgiving w/o it, though. At least in my family, anyway.
Same here! It’s always gotta be some kind of trouble.
Thank you! I’ll pass on the compliments!
Oh to live in an area that still has beautiful blooming flowers and fruit trees! Right now, everything is dead and we are just waiting for the snow to come and hibernate us all winter long!
Hope the family drama settles!
It was another Thanksgiving in shorts. Almost warm enough to swim, but not quite.
But the grass is always greener on the other side, right? We’d love to see some snow!
Beautiful pics! Fresh peppers and fruit sounds so nice. I grabbed some fresh tangerines from my grandparents tree when we visited them on Thanksgiving.
Would you believe that we were an hour away before I realized I hadn’t gotten any of those grapefruits? I’ll just have to ask for a box for Christmas!
Beautiful pictures. So jealous of the peppers, my husband would be drooling 🙂
Thank you, Kayla!
Oh, for a backyard! Extreme jealousy.
I know! And it’s such a great backyard at my mom’s house, too!
Here from ICLW!!
You are doing much better then me when it comes to gardening…
I kill Cactus….lol
I can’t take the credit for any of it. It’s my mom and stepdad’s garden. Thank you though!
