WS: Tall Georgia Pines at The Swamp

Filed under Thought for the Day

The Weather ‘experts’ were forecasting some particulary nasty weather for us Sunday. We were fortunate; they were wrong. This photograph was taken beofre the wind kicked up and the nasty clouds rolled in, but we never did get any rain.

Weekend Snapshot: Phalaenopsis

button1.gifI’ve really been missing my Orchids. I had about 3-1/2 dozen Orchids of all varieties in my lovely shaded yard in Florida. They only got dappled morning sun there. When I bought my home in Georgia I had to adopt out all my Orchids to a friend in Florida because my yard has too much sun from October-April. 031408-158.jpg

I went shopping yesterday! I found this Beauty! Guess what’s on my desk at The Swamp now? Welcome home, you gorgeous thing!

The Garden Center also the most spectacular Lily, which has one of my all time favorite scents. It was a monumental effort, but I resisted.

Phalaenopsis (Blume 1825) is a genus of approximately 60 species of orchids (family Orchidaceae). The abbreviation in the horticultural trade is Phal.

The generic name means “Phalaen[a]-like” and is probably a reference to the genus Phalaena, the name given by Carolus Linnaeus to a group of large moths; the flowers of some species supposedly resemble moths in flight. For this reason, the species are sometimes called Moth orchids.

Weekend Snapshot: Mowing his new grass

button1.gifDad’s mowing his newly planted grass.

Some areas are coming up much better than others. For instance this area at the back fence… not so good! Dad ran out of seeds.

This area gets “2 Paws Up” from Grayson!

Weekend Snapshot: Spring

Filed under Weekend Snapshot

My Dad planted a few of these Spiraea Bushes last year. This is the only one that survived last years’ drought.

While it’s starting to look like it may actually make it, it’s a long way from looking like a bush!

I snapped about 100 photos of my cats Gandalf & Grayson trying to catch a squirrel this weekend. This is my favorite!

Cheers.
