“Border Garden Grows Again.”

Description from arielswaves: The winter storm here in Texas last month, turned the landscape into a lifeless brown and gray. After countless people lost power and water, and faced tremendous damage, seeing the absence of green was discouraging. I lost precious heirloom plants as well. However, some are showing signs life, and it’s so beautiful! I’ve added new succulents, and my tangerine tree surprised me with new leaves! Regardless of how this pandemic, and all other difficulties have affected each one of us, please remember there is new life and hope coming. God bless you! 😊

    Amen! God bless you, too! So sorry for your & all your neighbors’ damages & lost plants from the Texas deep freeze. Alas, I worry such extreme weather may be becoming more frequent and more destructive in the coming years. But it does seem all the more precious and meaningful when life renews like the green of the survivors coming up in the spring. This is a marvelous pick to celebrate the renewal! Into my favorites.

    I feel so bad for you folks in Texas and neighboring states suffered during that mini ice age! You are not used to it and were unprepared. I pray that you, arielswaves, will see more and more new life spring back from the destruction. My sister-in-law lives in Georgetown and lost some of her beloved plants and trees. She will have to replant. Thank you for this hopeful pick. It deserves a POD.

    Congratulations on your lovely POD! A tangerine tree sounds fantastic to me. In Salem, Oregon the zone 8 weather is too cold for citrus, alas. I am happy my baby persimmon tree seems to have made it through the ice storm which destroyed a lot of trees here last month. Your pick is filled with hope and faith. Good work!

    Congratulations on your beautiful, hopeful & re-invigorating POD! I hope the spring is bringing with it a full restoration to your neighborhood, and soon we will all find a recovery from the COVID pandemic, too. Thank you for your inspiring pick & description!

    I tried posting before, but my phone must be acting weird. Thank you so much, everyone! I wish there was a like/love button, for each of your beautiful comments! It has been encouraging, to see the new growth, from the few surviving plants (even the native plants had trouble this time), and we’ve slowly been replacing the others. The pics are of my surviving barrel cactus. For the first time ever, it blossomed this week!
    Wherever you are, I pray you and your family are safe, and enjoying some of the regenerating life of spring! Fellow Texans, you’re an inspiration, as we get this this recovery together! I’m a Michitexan (still spend a little time in Michigan each summer, and love the beauty and resilience of both states (and can imagine how gorgeous gardens are in Oregon, Melody)! Have a blessed weekend, and thank you, Lima Beads, for the wonderful Egg Hunt last week!

    I love this so much! I’m sorry for the rough time you and your fellow Texans had during the winter storm. Your pick is so gorgeous and demonstrative of how hope and life endures! I even sent it to a dear friend who lives near San Antonio. Cheers to your burgeoning
    garden!

    P.S. I love chrysoprase and had never noticed that lemon variety, so now of course I have to own it lol
