Growing Things

Joseph's Mom & Uncle Brent came for a visit today, & enjoyed touring the homestead. The Atamasco Lilies are blooming on the path to the back field. We've read they're an endangered species, so I'm thankful to have them here to enjoy. Today we transplanted some of the Passionfruit vines that were on the edge of the back field to the garden. I experimented with transplanting one last year, & it came back looking happy this year. They make a very nice fruit, & the flowers are other-worldly. We also planted some sunflowers along the fenceline, hoping for a sunny welcome to all who drive up the driveway.
