|Cassie telling me enough already with the damn pictures!|
My poor cats were tortured while I shot these pics and I also discovered that some parts of the house need to be cleaned better and I was disgusted. Okay....enough of their pics...this is a garden blog!:)
Some news about what is going on with me. I will be joining the Tucson Botanical Gardens next weekend learning the ways of the docent. It's a 3 month course every weekend from butterflies to xeriscaping. I am extremely excited to be finally, after all these years in Tucson, connecting with the local garden community.
And finally, I busted my tookus off today on the grounds....potting and potting and more potting of cacti....yes I have needles to prove it:) I planted the calamondin bush and I worked putting in the other new plants. I will say that I feel like the plants are ready for summer to be over....their leaves are showing it. September is the worst month of the year....it's my most unfavorite time to be alive in Tucson. I hate gardening...I hate being outside...the mosquitos attack in the hundreds...maybe thousands....it's humid....and overall, it sucks. No one likes living here during this month....until October comes....and then our story changes:) So if you visit Tucson, come during monsoon if you like it hot or come from Mid-October thru the first weeks of May....but I don't recommend September:)
I look forward to posting some really awesome shots. Thanks everyone for your comments and reads. I really am enjoying this blogging stuff:) Happy Gardening!!
