I'm afraid there's nothing in her book about organizing a garden but the rules might apply except that there's nothing out there I am willing to give up except weeds.
Angel Trumpets started a new round of bloom. Note the hole at right where a whole tall stalk blew over in a recent wind. I took cuttings and tossed the rest. I meant to get a pic of Devil Trumpets -- white Datura -- and forgot before they closed in front of the greenhouse.
I did not notice until I came inside and looked at pics that this blossom on Pandora's Box is malformed. The botanical term is Polymerous, meaning that it has an extra petal, an extra sepal and an extra stamen. Usually there are two extra stamens. I'm glad there is rebloom here among the Purple Heart.
Butterflies are in abundance once again. I had declared I would take no more butterfly pics but they just will pose so cute.
Spicebush Swallowtail on left. Pipevine Swallowtail, wings fluttering on right. There is a male Tiger Swallowtail flitting all around but he declined posing where I could reach.
Cypress Vine and Sombrueil Rose
Swim Ray asked about Spanish Moss.
MIL and Aunt Lila who lived down the road used to fear Spanish Moss getting started in their pecan trees. We do have Spanish moss on the north end of the farm in a low area. Spanish Moss grows best in low, shady places. I hung some on a shepherd's hook where the birds can find it to line nests.
Around the support post at left, I propped an Epiphyllum with 6 buds so it can bloom and I won't have to wander around in the dark to find it.
Three or four nights, we should see blooms.
Now I have to get back to folding my t-shirts into neat little packets that stand alone. I was pleased to learn that I did know how to properly fold towels.
One satisfying point I read was that there is no reason to keep something you don't like simply because it cost a lot of money. "The money is already wasted."
