In My Backyard

I had been spending too much time in the office here...

so I decided to head outside to see if last nights downpour had washed away my seed sowing efforts of yesterday morning.

Mike's orchid station...he's very diligent about watering & fussing over them. I gave him each one as a gift on different occasions.
My african violets have found a temporary home to recuperate on this cart after suffering sunburn on the kitchen windowsill...
Okay, out the back door...only time will tell if the seeds stayed put. These carrots and radishes planted a few weeks ago are happy and it looks like the radishes are going to seed...
Signs of Spring are everywhere! My sweet smelling rose has a couple of buds...More pretty blossoms...
The red hibiscus that STAYS in bloom...and it's apricot colored relative...Last year I planted a few spider plants in the ground for the heck of it and now few are many...Bobo likes to keep me company when I'm outside...
Not too long ago this fig tree was completely bare. Last year we got no figs at all. I'm hoping it will produce fruit this season...Fig trees provide good "hiding" places...
The sun peeked out for just a moment, winked at us and then hid behind the clouds again...
More blossoms...

Gigantic leaves! This plant produces huge seed pods!
Okay, time to go in. I've got some baking to do.
I may be back out later...this lounge chair is calling to me...SOMEbody's not happy that mommy is going inside...
Have a great day~come again soon!
