we had a nice little rain…so it smelled wonderfully woodsy in the backyard when I took these.  I recently purchased the Gerbera Daisy and some Purslane (just learned from Wikipedia that people around the world eat purslane, how cool is that, I’ll have to give it a try).  I have them both growing in pots in my “grow cart.”

  can’t remember if I told you about my cart…or wagon if you will…my son and DIL gave it to me for Christmas.  my DIL asked me what I wanted for the occasion and I said a plastic wagon…something I could put flower pots in and move around in the yard to follow the sun.  they gave me what I asked for and it works wonderfully…no more having to move pots around the yard all day long.

in case I haven’t mentioned it recently, I have a huge live oak tree in the back yard…which means 365 days of the year I have very little sun, which is fine because I love my tree.  only problem is that most things that grow, like flowers and vegetables, need 6-8 hours of sunlight a day.  I did have good success with the lettuces I grew during the winter, but then they don’t mind the shade.

hope you’re having a pleasant Tuesday 🙂
