I told my family that when I retire, I was going to pick up several hobbies and one of them was going to be the art of Bonsai. One of my retirement gifts was a set of bonsai tools. I got a couple of books from Amazon and today I purchased this Juniper groundcover at Home Depot for my first Bonsai.
This week I finished working on the back of the garden, I added mulch and trimed some of the big plants.
I am finding several Monarch pupas around the garden, we had a lot of caterpillars this year. All the Milkweed plants are gone.
Heliconias do well in my garden, I purchased this one this week and planted it in a container.
Flowers showing off this week. Orchids on the mango tree, Blue Porter flowers (loved by bees) and the always reliable summer annual Purslane.
