I started this morning by taking my Mom to get a blood test at Kaiser. Near the hospital’s door, I noticed a hedge with pretty yellow flowers which measured 1.5 inches in diameter. I don’t know what this hedge is, but my Mom says it reminds her of a Jasmine. I thought I would take a cutting to see if I can root it.
Once we got home, I immediately went to the garden and started planting.
I planted two flowers, Plains Bicolor Coreopsis and Gold Dust Alyssum, in six-pack pots.
I also took apart a pot of Cactus and Succulents that my brother got a while back… one of the plants died and the remaining ones seemed to be overcrowded. Since he was taking care of it, I took the liberty of repotting them.
