~ William Shakespeare
Did I ever tell you that William Shakespeare was supposedly infatuated with an ancestor of mine? The story goes that he proposed to her but she turned him down. If she hadn’t have married my great great great something grandfather, I may never have been born. Or at least not who I am today! I don’t know how true this story is but I find it interesting. And plausible…
And besides the point…
I’ve started moving some of my house plants outside. I think it’s safe now!
In the picture above, is a spider plant, hanging from some “thing” that we found while cleaning out the playhouse. I have no idea what it is, but it looks like some kind of rotating device – or something. My boyfriend got the fire wood off the deck, so now I can safely hang more plants on the deck. Not all of them go out in the yard, but most do, or on a shelf on the deck. You’ll see. Only ones that are too delicate to out out in the weather stay on the deck.
This is a close up image of it. Maybe you know what it is? And what is was used for?
some of my many plants I have planted or transplanted through out the years (below)…
going in (above)…
In the photo above there are Yuccas, Hollys, Crepe Myrtles, some kind of Sage (tree with white blooms), Azaleas, Maple trees, cedar (left), Peonies, and pine trees (right), and two dead Black Gum trees we’re trying to figure out how to get down, or fall – which is the correct term.
If the sun had been out when I watered the Rose of Sharon transplant from yesterday, everything would look more vibrant. But, it is what it is!
my money plant going to seed…
plan on putting some of its seeds in the garden alongside the deck, alongside the Bleeding Hearts. Where they are now, my boyfriend keeps smashing them with the hose. I hope they’re safe enough there. They don’t like a lot of sun, so I have to be careful where I put them.
You know, I just realized I haven’t listened to the news at all today! Feels kinda nice!
