FLORAL FRIDAY-APRIL 11, 2020

Stay Safe

Good and bad days come and go. Today I want showcase my two plants that I am very please about. The first is a Norfolk pine it was Christmas gift 2 years ago. The tree is not winter hardy and must kept indoors. This is starting it 3rd year and it is putting on new growth.

I first encounter this plant when we where traveling in our Motorhome. We in Yuma, Arizona we found the trees. We learn the are called BOOJAM TREES. I was surprise to find small at the grocery store and for awhile the small plants where in all the stores. I brought one home and likes its current location. IT is starting its dormant time and I not sure how to handle it. Wish us luck!
