The Coreopsis is Back to Life!
By Picardy Project on Jun 25, 2013
The coreopsis have returned from the dead. Astonishing. The original one I split from was looking like this a couple of weeks ago:
And now it looks like this!
And the one that I transplanted after splitting that looked full on DEAD?
It is rising from the dead!
It's a miracle! Who knows if it will full on come back to life, but the fact that there are 3 flowers on it is pretty exciting.
What to know what else is exciting? Shasta daisies that are nearly 4 ft tall:
Not exciting? The arbor vitae was looking like it was on its way out a few weeks ago...
I think it has full-on left the station.
My dad and stepmom were over the other day and she said if we could find the receipt we should try to return it because it was guaranteed for a year at the nursery we got it from.
The nice thing though is that really besides the arbor vitae, the rest of the front yard is looking pretty damn beautiful in all the summer sun
Our veggie gardens in the back are slowly coming along as well. Veggie garden 2.0 isn't really doing great.
The peas have died, the beans look like they might, and only one bell pepper and watermelon have survived. Oh well. It's not like I have time to tend to the plants very much at the moment anyway.
The other veggie garden?
It's growing - we have tomatoes!
And we might have some squash soon, as well!
And lastly, the dwarf meyer lemon and orange we planted last September...
They're pretty happy!
We even have some little lemons.
Yay for summer and lots of growing :) I can't wait to enjoy the fruits (and veggies) of our labor :)
