My Gardenia Bush is looking good so far.....

I am on a mission to grow a beautiful gardenia bush and have lots and lots of good smelling beautiful gardenias.  She's coming along.  All the buds have fallen off so far, but I will keep trying.


This is when I first brought her home and transplanted her into this planter, then fertilized, and watered. 



This is today.  Looking good so far.  I put her on a plate with stones that I keep with water for humidity which I have read that she needs.  I not dare move her or touch her, just water once and week and fertilize once a month.  I do, however look at her a lot and silently ask her to please give me some gardenias, as they are my favorite flower in the whole wide world.

I Wish You Love,

My afternoon visitors.....




They are growing up fast.

A loud squawker.....

This pretty fellow showed up a few weeks ago and is very loud when he's calling his mate.



There are many different bird species around here.  I love that I live in a place where I can see them everyday.   The other night I saw an owl pirched upon the street sign.  So cute.  Of course, camera was not on hand.  Hopefully I can capture more pics and share them.
 Have a wonderful Sunday everyone.

I Wish You Love,

Joyce
