In case my previous posts haven’t made this obvious, we don’t exactly have green thumbs around here. M always starts out with good intentions, thinking he’ll water the plants. I know we won’t. The roof has full Sun and gets very hot. The plants don’t even get attention during heat waves. What we have up there is what has survived.
There’s the lavender we planted last year. There were 4 plants and 3 of them survived. And they’re just starting to flower!
M picked some herbs that are supposed to like sunny, dry conditions. We’ll see if a Summer of neglect affects them.
This is the lemon thyme. We also have sage and oregano. (The water is from the girls having some fun with spray bottles.)
And finally, there are two containers left by the previous owners. One has a succulent that I’ve photographed many times. And one has a variety of plants. A small succulent, moss, tiny purple flowers on taller stalks, a couple of green plants that looks like they’ll spread. And something that may or may not be a weed.
I didn’t get a good shot of the flowers or of the ensemble. The whole thing almost looks like it was designed. Every plant in the perfect spot to please the eye. But I swear, it’s just been growing like that on its own. I’m curious to see where it goes, just to see what nature actually wants to do there…
