My eyes have been treated to the following scenes for the last three mornings:

I thought I arrived in NM too late to see the Western Tanagers, but happily, I was wrong!

Recently I visited a newish plant nursery in Phoenix, named Dig It (it’s on 16th Street just north of Thomas Blvd). There, I succumbed to the lure of summer flowers.

Like these Gomphrena flowers:

I’m a total sucker for them, even though I’ve never bought any before now. I’ll move them into a sunnier spot, but they’re ok for the moment. The container, which I love, came from a sale at the Desert Botanical Garden. It was made in Portugal, and I think it’s gorgeous.

I’ve got lots of photos of pretty plants and places that I’m planning on posting in the coming days. Maybe without much commentary as I’m pressed for time these days. But hopefully you’ll enjoy the eye candy.

If you have tips for caring for Gomphrena, I’m all ears.

 

Hey, look who I found! It’s Expert Dottie! She’s an expert in life!

She’s doing great, and was an absolute delight to see! Beautiful views and wonderful company.

About Me

Hi! My name is Liza. Welcome to my blog and thanks for visiting! I'm a Midwestern gal now living in the beautiful Land of Enchantment, Albuquerque, New Mexico. I have a plant care business here in town called Good To Grow. I can beautify your home, office, or patio with plants and flowers. I have 13 years of experience growing plants, and friendships.

Plants are living, breathing creatures, and if they're indoor plants, they are 100% dependent on human care. They cannot water themselves.

Please let me know if you have questions or if you would like help with your plants or garden. You can reach me at lizatheplantlady (at) gmail (dot) com or follow me on Twitter, Lizawheeler7.

All photos are mine unless otherwise noted. All content is also entirely my hard work. If you'd like to use any content or photos, all you have to do is ask. If you take without asking, you are a thief. And thieves suck. So don't suck. We have a deal? Good.
