We've been spending a good bit of time outside lately, while the weather is still nice. In a month or so, it's going to be HOT here in Texas. Here's a tour of some of our favorite things at the moment.
The little pear tree we planted last year already has teeny little pears on it. L's been monitoring them regularly, to watch their progress, although he doesn't eat pears.
Although I've tried to get L interested in gardening with me, for the most part, he's not too interested. This little succulant garden is the exception, though. He says it's his.
The little swimming-pool-turned-herb-garden is doing well, and it's about the only thing not over run with weeds.
We're at the watch and wait (and weed,) phase with the vegetable garden. Everything is planted. The only thing L is excited about is the okra, which is one of the few vegetables he'll eat. I'm excited about the prospect of home made salsa, like mom used to make.
Incidentally, this is the view from my favorite part of the yard: inside the hammock.
