Relax, I'm not breaking up with anyone in particular, only with my yellow Cassia tree. This week I had to make the difficult decision, and cut my Cassia tree. I planted this young tree several years ago, and over the years it became my favorite flowering tree. The bright yellow flowers were stunning, especially during the Christmas season.
Like human relationships, the tree grew up and it became a pain in the neck. It grows aggressively during the summer, pushing my mango tree to the side. The shallow roots were no match for our summer thunderstorms, I would have to right up the tree several times during the rainy season. So this week after one of those storms passed thought town, I decided it was time to part ways. I will miss you yellow tree, we had a good run.
Flowers in the garden this week
My first harvest of limes from a plant I purchased at Home Depot last spring. This lime tree is in a small container, so the harvest is never going to be plentiful.
