A FEW THINGS TO SHARE

These Moss Roses are for Sandra at "From the desk of Mad Snapper." She loves Moss Roses. I grew up with Moss Roses, my father planted them every year. We had a large section of them in the backyard that died when we had a bad frost a few years ago. Well they are back! 


A bird nest we found yesterday
in a dwarf palm tree in the yard.
(Soon Skye will have to be watched closely)

Hope your having a nice weekend.

Can't believe it is the last day of June!

Moss roses (aka portulaca ... at least that's what my mom called them) are an annual here. My mom planted them a lot ... I've thought planting some, but as I prefer a low-maintenance landscaping/garden, I only plant perennials.

I too can hardly believe that tomorrow will be July!

I love moss rose but haven't grown it for years - kinda forgot about it. I'll check out the garden department next time I go by - everything is marked down now - maybe be able to get a bargain on some.

Thanks for jogging my memory.
