Glad to have ya'll along!
Yesterday, I noticed something red out of the corner of my eye (no, not in the corner of my eye, that could be bad) when looking out a window in my friend's house. Ohhhh, what is that? What are those red things I see? I must go see! So I went out & saw this! Very pretty & what a treat!
This is the red brush bloomin' tree. I have no idea what it is really called. I'm too lazy to look it up right now. So I'll just dub it a red brush tree. Funny, from a distance, you don't really see the blooms, so they can go easily missed. Up close, WOW, beautiful! The little pedals off of them are waxy feeling. At first look, I thought they were hard shelled, but no, they were very soft & pliable. And hot pink on the inside, soft pink on the outside. Very pretty!
Weather has been so beautiful the past few days. In the high 70's outside, 82 inside the RV. Comfortable with windows open & fans blowing. I have no complaints.
Yesterday, we bought some goldfish for the pond. Last year, we bought some fancy fish, but the frogs & birds got them. So this year, we opted for just feeder goldfish! I did buy two last fall & one is still living. So it was very happy for the new company. They've been swimming around enjoying the pond. No pics because they rush to the bottom of the pond when they see me.
Around the pond, it's just a small pond that is made out of a manmade plastic pond. So around it, we built a flower/veggie bed. We put two bell pepper plants, some flowers & two grape vines that climb up on the support fence behind it. We didn't have a hard winter this year, so the pepper plants survived. Now they are bearing peppers!
I miss the beautiful flower beds I had in my house at the bay. Well, they weren't actually in my house. We had a pool & I had a few flower beds planted around it & lots of potted flowers as well. So I was glad when my friends decided to redo their pond last year.
They have a cute little sign hanging over the pond:
All others will be Toad.
Here are the pepper plants:
I hope everyone is having beautiful weather like we are having here.
~As always, be kind to your pets, clean up after them on your travels & respect your neighbor~
