Looks a mile long, doesn't it? That's 40 four patches.
Apologies for the slightly blurry photo. This is the way I drew the design, butting up to the center, but I think it needs a spacer strip of the background, probably 3" finished. Otherwise I like it. Since I was home, I took a little garden patrol to snap some photos.
In about a month or so this plant will be covered with red bracts that will last until February--I love my poinsettia!
A friend gave us two Plumeria plants about a year and a half ago. These blooms are on the larger plant and smell heavenly. Of course I always think of my time in Hawaii when I smell them. The blossoms are frequently used for leis and the plants tree-sized in landscaping there. Our plant is about three feet high now and the other about a foot and a half.
Our next year's crop of Hass avocados from our dwarf tree. There is ONE other fruit! Very disappointing, as the last crop we had was about 25 fruits. There you have it, border/patrol!
