Gardening has been one of my hobbies as well as photography and just being outdoors.

Ed has been a no-show around here. The temps are below 100 for awhile. We still have rain in the forecast, but around here you never bet on it. My yellow ixora and red plumara are blooming. The plumara has an interesting growth characteristic in that it seems to always branch out in threes. The pomegranate tree is coming into it's own. Last year it produced 1 fruit for the first time, this year is better. As for the Topsy turvy, the tomato plant is all but dead. I think the heat and sun got to it. I put a remote thermometer in the bag and it is showing 115 degrees. Maybe the roots were cooked. So maybe the bag needs to out of direct sunlight or white, all I know is that I probably will not use it again and stick to more grounded methods.
I added a few more pictures since first posting. There is more plants around here with some color.
