SPRING TIME FUN!

Just another day playing outside with the kids, findingΒ wish flowers *weed spreaders*, making lizard catchers, picking lemons and making lemonade. Life was good until that humongous grasshopper tried to hitch a ride in my hair! HA!

She found some huge wish flowers, and her wish was for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Can you spot the huge hopper!? I think it shaved 9 years off of my life πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

MY ROSES

What beautiful weather today in SoCal! Just warm enough, blue skies and flowers blooming everywhere! I took Nicky *my camera* out and about in my back and front yard to see what’s going on.

My roses are doing great this year! Especially the multicolored bush. Take a look! 😁

PHALENOPSIS

To me, Phalaenopsis orchids are the easiest to grow and flower. They like indirect light and changes in weather to form flower spikes and if cared for properly, their blooms can last for weeks!

I rescued this little guy last year. He was almost dead with just one leaf! After a little TLC and some fertilizer he is doing great with two branching flower spikes and tons of buds getting ready to open.

This coming weekend is the Santa Barbara International Orchid show, so my little guy will be getting some new brothers and sisters soon! I’m so excited!! Yayyyyy orchids!
