Showing Some Side

18 May, 2011 2 comments

The largest project this year was one that was started back in the winter when I layed down cardboard to kill the grass. Eventually all of the grass was killed and it was all mulched. This side includes many Colocasia’s, Caladium’s, banana’s, two Hydrangea’s, a Philodenron, Hosta’s, Ferns and a Japanese Maple that I was able to get at a Korger grocery store surprisingly. This picture was taken at the end of April and it has already filled in a bit and the Musa basjoo’s in their second year have shot up.

Looking Back Part I

All it has been doing here in Kentucky is raining. While the sun continues to come out and play every other day or so, it has mainly stayed away. We also are having some cooler than normal temps so the plants are growing, but a bit slower than normal. That is okay though. I found on my digital camera pictures from September to November of last year I forgot about. I just started using my cameras phone instead. So, we will be taking a look back at last year’s peak growth of the tropicals over the next few post’s.

Part II will be up at a later date. I hope you enjoyed. I know I did just looking at them and can’t wait for them to grow back to this size. As I speak though a hevay cold rain is falling with our temps at 46f during the day on the 3rd day of May. Crazy!
