I put it in with another plant that I got as a gift in a big old planter and both plants just took off like gang busters.
I had put this little Buddha in with the plants when they were little and now they are just swallowing him up!
More garden talk...I was coming back from lunch with Gerry the other day and was going past my favorite nursery. This place is gorgeous! It's a nursery but they have it set up so nice it's like a big botanical garden. Well, I thought I'd stop by. I've been wanting for a while now to get a pink powder puff tree. We had one when I was a kid and they are just beautiful trees. They get very large like a jacaranda and the canopy is umbrella like. But I just haven't seen any in nurseries or anyone's yard or anywhere, so I thought I'd see if they had a jacaranda instead. The guy told me the jacarandas all died in the frost we had last winter. So I thought I was out of luck. Then I saw this little guy with the tell tale leaves and saw it was a powder puff. I was so excited! I didn't think I'd ever find one. Here it is planted. Gerry put extra fencing around it so Miss Puddy won't use it as her personal toilet.
I finished the charcoal ficus drawing. Here it is matted and framed. It's all ready for the display in Nov. with the Natural Art Women's artist co-op.
