Around the Yard

This past weekend was pretty busy with Banana's 2nd birthday and my son's Pinewood Derby races for the Cub Scouts.  We did find some time to take a quick tour of the yard, though.


I guess you would consider this the 'before' picture.


Ice Plant of some sort

Bouganvilla.  I have nothing but problems with this one.  It's on its last legs this time of year when, I think, it should be going full bloom.  This is when it goes dormant.  Odd.


For the life of me, I don't remember what these are.  I'll have to wait for my wife to get home.  She's the memory.

That's a quick tour of the weekend.  Nothing planned for this upcoming weekend, except to get a lot of work done.  Here's a quick shot of the Pinewood Derby cars to leave you with.


  1. Beautiful pics! I always love this time of year.

    P.S. I'm bad with plant names as well. :) I need to get myself a guide of some sort.

  2. I have a way of categorising flowers: yellow ones, blue ones, whites ones, etc..

    It works for me!

  3. Thomas, I'm ok with the one's I buy, as I have some sort of system of keeping track. As soon as I figure out what it is, I'll be ok. It's the plants I inherited with the yard. No clue.

    IG, I would also prefer to add one subcategory to each...dead ones...not dead ones. Although, dead one's may just move to the brown category, I guess.
