When Summer Is Here

I was supposed to include these photos of  our garden that I took yesterday morning  in my other blog but for some reason, they would not load.

I finished trimming our grass yesterday and started pruning some of the overgrown plants but haven’t finished them yet. It is so hot here.

Remember the pineapple I took shot of a few weeks ago when it was just a bud? It has grown considerably and I am just waiting for maybe two or three more months before harvesting it. Pineapples take time to reach their full maturity.  Would you believe, it usually takes six months?  Here’s how it looks now.  It’s growing nicely.

It is always a surprise to see new blooms in the garden. I only used to have them in purple, these lovely Ruellia plants  but they are now showing pink and white colors too. The seeds grow on their own. You’ll just be surprised that they grow plenty in your garden.

I have these lovely mixtures of Four O’clock, Zinnia and Vinca in one corner of the garden. They are in different shades of pink.  Summer is when you can see them all abloom.

About arlene

It's been some years since I started this blog. Supposedly, it was only to share my plight as a cancer patient and survivor but over the years it has somehow evolved into something personal about my life and my family. So really glad to have met you all wonderful people out there. Someone commented once that he liked the title of this blog, Dreams and Escapes. Dream on, there are more things in life than we really think. Be happy, you only live once. Sometimes you also need an escape from the vicissitudes of life and this blog helps me cope. Welcome. Feel free to leave your comments, I do welcome them.
