Growing Garden

One of the great things about buying an older house is the mature landscaping.  We have an orchard in our backyard.  Well, not literally, but we have a lot of fruit trees: tangerines, oranges, white grapefruit, apricots, cherries and figs.

*let me know if you like grapefruit. they’re yummy in a sweet and tart way.*

They’re almost dead, but we have hydrangeas and these other flowers which names I don’t know.

And this weird plant.  Again, I don’t know its name (I’m an engineer, not a botanist), but it looks like octopus tentacles coming out of the ground.

We have a few more plants, but they’re not that exciting.  Shrubs and vines and bushes.  We probably have the same square footage (if not more) of plants as the house.  C is going to be very busy shuffling his time between the house projects and the landscaping.

    The grapefruits were quite tasty. I’ll take two or three per week off your hands? How about we complete the transaction at the Dish?
