Life in the low desert.
Patio flowers in January.
Look at these adorable pots I scored as a Christmas present from Mom:
I love them! She got them from Chive.com. They have lots of beautiful gifts.
I also got some cuttings from Mom’s plants, so yesterday I finally potted them. I’m very happy with the outcome.
Here they are in their new home, in front of an east window:
Heyyyy, look who decided to bloom on Christmas Eve:
Phoenix is weird.
I don’t think I’m going to regret harvesting the last of the basil and parsley today.
Phoenix is COLD!!!! Like, ridiculously cold even if I am a big baby about the cold now.
I don’t know what my garden will look like come morning, so I’m glad I heard the freeze warning on the radio on my way home from work. Now on to bigger decisions – pesto? Caprese salad?
My poor lemon tree. He’s all beat up and slightly depressed, he lost all of his leaves, and he’s increasingly alarmed about his future.
He and I have so much in common.
On the bright side, I now finally know he’s a lemon and not a lime tree.
I love these little guys!
For those days in between when your farmers’ market flowers have died and your next opportunity to replace them, a nice green bouquet can work wonders to fill the gap:
Plus, they’re rooting, so there’s that bonus as well.
Bouquets feed the soul. No one ever said they had to be flower bouquets.
I guess I have basil babies (roughly 12 feet from the mother plant) now.
