Guerrilla Gardening

We were off of school yesterday for Presidents Day. I spent much of the day relaxing, but I did go to school for a little gardening.

I grew some crownflower trees from seed, and I’ve been meaning to plant the four seedlings that survived the onslaught of monarch caterpillars that decimated my crop.

There were also some plumeria trees cuttings that someone brought for the band rummage sale. They’ve been sitting in a water bucket outside of the church for three weeks. I finally put them in the ground.

There’s a strip of land next to our property that is overgrown and scrubby-looking. It was the perfect spot to plant a few trees.

If they survive, these sticks will turn into trees.

If they survive, these sticks will turn into trees.

If you look really closely, you can see it.

    What? Are you seriously living in Narnia? You just throw bits of twigs and branches about and they grow into trees? I want you to plant some Starbursts – then I’ll come visit.

    By the way, “the onslaught of monarch caterpillars that decimated my crop” is some fabulous writing, sir. 🙂

    Memories of the “Butterfly Hill” at BLS. I was sad that we didn’t have time to get it established. Glad that you are continuing to spread beauty.
