We finally got a beautiful weekend, and I took advantage of both days in the garden. My vegetable / herb garden needed some help; the constant rain has not been good for anything I planted this year. I pulled out most of the tomato plants and tidy up a bit.
This section of the garden is not getting much sun this winter; all the grown trees in the back garden are hurting the vegetable plants. When I started planting vegetables in this area, it would get full sun all morning, now only a couple of hours.
This week at the DragonFly Garden
I photographed another winter visitor to the garden, a Prairie Warbler. This little guy spends winters in Florida, the Caribbean and summers in states from Georgia to New England.
This owl nesting box was a Christmas gift from my niece. We had a screech owl nest on a dead palm tree several years ago, so I’m hoping that it will happen again. Nesting season starts in March.
These bananas are a total surprise, this plant was in a container for a long time and this summer planted it on the ground.
This coming weekend the garden is hosting my daughter’s baby shower, we expect around 30 guests. I will be spending more time getting everything ready.
