I’m very excited that I seem to have figured out how to keep our Bearss lime tree happy and fruitful. Last year I ended up with only two limes on the entire plant. This year it looks like it will be closer to 20. Here’s one standout, to the left, and you can see at least six limes in the picture below!

This time of year, the French Peppermint is buzzing with happy honeybees.
Our two hydrangeas are also very happy, though they got a little bit burned when the temperatures were so high last month.
And finally, our new bird of paradise is sprouting up a storm. It was a gift from my Aunt Margie, and every bit of the new growth at the bottom has appeared just in the past several weeks!
