Hello to everyone!
It’s time for the Authors in Bloom blog hop. Make sure you leave a comment with your email address so you can be entered in the grand prize.
I love gardening, but living in Phoenix, we usually have to start our garden in January. Given that January was the month of disasters, we missed planting our tomatoes so we decided to focus on the planting beds around the pool. Both hubby and I decided that we would focus on desert (low water) plants and those that could serve another purpose besides just looking good.
But first we wanted to experiment. Part of the disaster in January was a water leak so we excavated the bed near the house and filled it with sand, soil and bark. Then hubby decided to try planting bulbs. We were expecting lots of rain this winter, and yet, no, it’s been bone dry for months. So thanks to the hose, we’ve finally achieved sprouting:
Across the pool, we managed to find some literature on grape vines and finally cut the thing back at the right time. Now, it’s taking off and we hope to get some grapes.
Next to it is my mini rose bush. This is my contribution to save the bees that come to my pool to drink. And hey, you can make tea.
I finally got around to replanting our nearly dead Aloe vera from a crowded planter to the ground. I don’t care how much sun screen I slather on, I always end up burned, and bonus more flowers. Although the hummingbirds usually harvest these.
And lastly is our pomegranate bush. I love these fruits, and this year it looks like we’ll have a bumper crop. BTW, that fence behind it is over six feet tall.
Well, that’s it for my garden. In my latest release, my heroine dreams of a summer garden where she can put up lots of fruits and vegetables to feed her new family.
Gretchen Foltz escapes the workhouse with a dream of a family and a dead woman’s name. Reeling from his wife’s betrayal, widower Kian Byrne is struggling to keep his children out of his rich in-law’s clutches. Gretchen and Kian will forge a desperate alliance until an innocent kiss leaves them yearning for more. Can they untangle the lies before someone separates them forever?
