Welcome to my “yarden” !!

Smiley face with cameraAs usual, I was in my “yarden” (my coined word)  early. The sunshine seemed strangely “friendly” this morning and put my plants in an admirable light. I felt compelled to grab my camera. Yesterday, “for the birds,” I drove to Livingston for bleach (from Dollar Tree). I use a lot of bleach to remove grime from the cement patio blocks and, of course, the fountain.

UnknownLast Fall and Winter, I protected a Fox Tail Fern in my tarp shelter. This Spring the rightful owner retrieved the plant and (gratefully) transplanted it in a much larger planter. I observed… and I requested a small bulb from the discarded soil. I thought it might be a Fox Tail Fern bulb (if there is such a thing) and worth planting. Well, all these months later, it is growing but no evidence that it is a Fox Tail Fern.
