Hallo, where did the time go? I was running around all day that I didn't get to really write up a proper post as promised!
Um, gardening updates/news: I inherited a large rubber tree/shrub plant in a pot from my volunteer place and pruned that sucker back and will be taking a bunch of cuttings for people who actually missed it. Apparently there was a bunch of naysayers about the poor rubber tree who thought it looked like a bunch of sticks. But it was in full rubber tree leaf glory! All dark purple-green glossy leaves! Ah well, beauty in the eye of the beholder?
I also had to re-pot up some orchids that I've been slowly killing the root system too because I 1) over watered and 2) forgot that they like to be a little root/pot bound. The good news is that freed up some of the large pots as I had to trim back dead orchid roots galore.
Um... it's still hot? But looks like rain is in the forecast. Which will probably mean fungus.... again. Blah. I might be bringing out the big guns now, like copper spray, we'll see; I'm not thinking my everbearing strawberries will be everbearing again this year.
And now, allow me to distract you with some pretty borage pics!
What I I especially like with the morning pics is all the DEW:
