Been up to a lot lately. It mostly involves feeling dehydrated, dusty, and tired. Yup. You guessed it. More landscaping! Thankfully, the butt-load of chicken poo in our driveway has shrunk quite a bit. We're putting the rest under our to-be-delivered-Friday-sod.
I've found that if I get outside everyday to putz around in the yards, I feel so much better about life!
Here's my composter! *Which has got some sweet-o aromas, bug populations, and homemade dirt! Next to it you will see the tree-with-the-red-leaves, which-I-thought-was-dead. I'm glad I didn't just chop it down. I tend to do stuff like that.
This is a Century Plant, also known as Agave. These babies get really big and there's no telling when they'll bloom. But when they do, you can't miss it! They send up a huge spike (like 15+ feet) with these funky flowers on the top. Then the plant dies.
Since I just invested in four of these, I hope they don't bloom anytime soon.
