Progress in My Garden

Caris Roane Paranormal Romance Author Inspiration for EMBRACE THE POWERMany of you have emailed to say you’re enjoying watching the progress in my garden, even though it’s become a slow-motion process at this point, lol! I have 50 + plants still sitting on my patio, though I will confess it’s because half these plants are NEW! I keep getting carried away at my local garden center. (Don’t you love getting carried away at times?)

Plants on my patio...waiting...So, for every plant that makes its way into the ground, I keep buying two more! And who can blame me! I found the most beautiful lavender Vinka, so of course, I had to have six of those! I’m planting 3 in the front left bed and 3 in the right front to form a welcome-to-my-garden greeting!

Newly planted Indian Laurel But, this week I’m thrilled to say I actually dug a hole deep enough in my … ahem … quarry, to plant a tree. It was a thrill, I think because digging these holes is a hard-won task! I honestly felt like I’d accomplished something major. And I only have 9 more trees to go (that includes the 4 Italian Cypress whose pots are as big as the Indian Laurels. Hey, I’m getting stronger by the minute!) The area in the back was the half-an-island I got planted last week which I showcased in the prior newsletter! Little by little this job will get done!

Finally, here’s a pic of a tree (below) that I planted back in February. This is an Afghan Pine. When I put it in, it was leaning to the right from having sat in its pot for over a year. Now it’s straight and growing!

Afghan PineI’m finding it takes each plant a minimum of two months to figure out its new location. I know transplants have to take some time to grow their roots so when planted there’s always a stasis period. But the pine has figured things out and is now shooting up.

Gardening is a tremendous pleasure, a confirmation of the drive of life, not unlike the ants who seem to adore my garden. Although I have way too many ants in my yard, of all sizes, I’m constantly amazed and inspired by their industry!

All for now!

And now, have a wonderful day and an even better night! For more information about my books, keep scrolling!
