This cute scene was the first thing I saw, aren’t they just adorable? Since the chickens all usually run free around here it was odd to see them behind wire. Must be protecting the little ones.
Wait a second what is this!? NOT FAIR! Look at that bud! This little pip squeak is in a 1 gallon pot and already has a bloom ready to happen? Clifford, our big leaf Magnolia, is over 9ft tall, been in the ground for almost 4 yrs, and we have never had a single bloom. Something is wrong with this picture!
Reading the tag I see it is living up to its reputation perfectly. I guess we didn’t choose our Magnolia very wisely.
I’ve never really understood the fuss over Loquats. But then maybe I have never really seen one in person, I love this plant! Look at those leaves…gorgeous.
Only $40…oh, but it’s marked Sold. Well that’s good because I really don’t have any place for it. But now I know, and I will start scheming about where I can put one!
Look more chickens, aren’t they cute? They were digging at the gravel with their feet to get at the wet stuff underneath, and then pecking at it. For the water or little bugs? Don’t know, but standing in the sun watching them helped my mood and I left feeling better than when I arrived. And I didn’t even purchase a single plant!
But wait…the story continues…
I’m making the bed this morning, and looking out the window at Clifford and feeling cheated. I’m thinking about that gorgeous bud at Pistils and wonder when we’ll get to see one. That’s when I see IT! Up top…could it possibly be? No, just wishful thinking. I move closer to the window to get a better view, oh gosh. I grab the camera and the husband and we head out to get a look see. It is! OMG!
Andrew stood on one of our chairs to get this shot:
We are going to be grandparents, gotta go buy the champagne! Our Clifford is going to bloom!
