Bougainvilleas Blooming

Friday, May 8th, 2009

The bougies are starting to bloom. I am a bougainvillea freak. Got new yellow and white ones from Lowe’s this season. They had a nice selection. Usually the big box stores only carry the ubiquitous hot pink Barbara Karst variety.

First Tomato

Friday, May 8th, 2009

First tomatos emerging. This is the first time I have ever tried a container tomato. I got Celebrity on the recommendation of the nursery. The only time I have attempted to grow tomatos in the past were in-ground, and all tomatos succumbed to the dreaded Blossom End Rot. Fingers crossed…
