welcome back!

cracked pot
i know it has been while since i have written anything or posted any pictures of the garden.  i do apologise, and really i have no excuse other than the usual.  as many of you know, vancouver didn’t have a stellar winter, and even now there are remnants of the destruction (how dramatic) it caused on our gardens.  i still have not replaced the giant cordyline at the front door, and i still see mouldy flax in many people’s yards.  it’s not coming back people, time to move on.  but besides the ugly winter and the spring which just cannot move on – my garden is coming along just fine.  i have created a new wire basket for succulents that i am now searching for.  it will hang over the edge of the concrete in the front garden and will get sun all afternoon.  in the winter i will be able to move the whole enchilada to the greenhouse more easily i was able to move the succulents last fall.  i already have more plants than places to put them and it only may, so there will more ingenuity  on my part to come.

  1. Hi Shawn, I’m a total stranger but I came across your blog through web search last year when I was entertaining the notion of getting a Musa Basjoo for my patio. Can you please post a pic of how yours have survived after last winter? 🙂
