I’m overdue for a “Weekly View” post but it may be on hold a bit longer. While working at Hallstrom House last Tuesday, I big time wrenched my upper back, lifting wicked heavy (for me) debris-laden tarps. 😦 Since then I’ve been confined to the house, resting flat and doing little beyond squelching the rising panic over my less-than-speedy recovery ❗
However…it IS getting better and I just got out to the garden for the first time in week! Yaayyy!!!
As you can see, the Luther Burbank Opuntias are still blooming alongside a crown-of-thorn shrub that was heavily pruned a few months ago.
The day before my injury, I planted 20 lily bulbs from an “Unspecified Assortment 15pk.” Now if you’re scratching your head, saying “hmmm, chick can’t add?” be advised: the numerically challenged party in this equation is Wal-Mart, but I’ve got no complaints! 5 free lilies works for me. Several have broken the surface already, and here’s one, variety unknown.
Another lily making an appearance this week was a red Canna, the first of early Spring:
The nasturtiums have been around awhile but are finally leafing out and blooming prodigiously. This colorful flower always makes me smile:
My biggest surprise was seeing how the purple phalaenopsis had changed:
What a beauty! The next image shows the entire plant (with two additional bloomspikes):
I tried shooting the Tillandsia next, but the upward angle and twisting involved exceeded my limited range of motion. I CAN tell you it’s really tall though! 🙂
Until next time…..
