And I am pooped! I worked sooooo hard today. I wasnt able ot get pics but Ill be sure to do it tomorrow.
I dug up a lemon tree and potted it. HE said it wasnt doing well in the ground. When I dug it up, I saw why...... its roots are very shallow and the ground was very dry....I need to have a talk with him about watering his plants.
I then moved a Massive!!!! well, rooted elephant ear. It had fallen over during Hurricane Katrina and had contued to grow that way. It was just in the way. He wanted me to just yank it up (yeah like that was going to happen) and just throw it out but the girls wanted it to stay. So Rob and I dug it up...took almost an hour to get it up. And then we just moved it back and over about 2 feet. If it falls over again...... oh well! It can just grow that way! I am not digging that monster up again!!!!!!
We then moved to the back yard and dug up the out of conrol Banana trees. I left the orignal clump of trees alone but dug up the ones growing outside the rock walk. I of course brought them home.
After that, Rob sat in the shade drinking ice water, while I started yanking up the bloody jasmine.....Have I mentioned...how much I really hate that stuff?? Yeah it smells great but I have had to yank up too much out of control jasmine in my life, to care for it. It doesnt smell THAT! good.
