When we bought our house, we inherited a dead cherry tree in the front yard. This thing was all dried out dead branches and we pretty much neglected it for the last year or so. Heck, we were about to uproot the thing when it suddenly began sprouting green leaves this spring. Today, while out in the yard, I found this.
I’ll be d*mned. Not only did this thing come back from the dead, it’s starting to grow cherries.
Nature just laughed in my face.
And I’m a jerk for neglecting this baby because I thought it was dead.
Love and hanging my head in shame,
Has it really been almost 2 months since my last update? Yikes! Time just flies doesn’t it?
Lately I’ve been obsessed with the plants in my yard. We had some work done in our front yard and our contractor was less than gentle with some of my beauties. I like the guy, but boy, was I ticked when I got home and saw some of my plants gone and others smashed. Poor Fernando had to deal with my wrath, but like a sweetheart, has been helping me to rehab my damaged plants.
Two of my plants I’ve been monitoring everyday are my blueberries and my orange tree. Fernando bought me two blueberry plants last year, but I could barely get them to even sprout green leaves. This year I put them in a new location and fed them tons of food and water. I’d like to think my efforts paid off.
My orange tree is a new acquisition. I happened to be in Costco when they were unloading the trees. Wouldn’t you know I picked the sickliest one? For whatever reason, it called to me and guess what? With food, sunshine and lots of love, my tree is thriving.
I have several of these baby oranges growing. (Or what I think are oranges anyway!)
I’m absolutely fascinated with the life cycle of plants and how such delicate things can produce such hearty things for us to enjoy. Life is amazing.
Love & Chlorophyll,
