The Flamingo Pond

gardening, weird plants, and yard art

How does your garden grow?

Gardening is a big hobby of mine. I am in 7a. I like growing cactus (especially those native to this area), along with water and bog plants, and I also cultivate orchids. The Brassavola spp. are my favourite orchids.

When I'm not working on the plants, I birdwatch. We have hummingbirds, and a bunch of others who are gradually being identified.

I also have an undeniable attraction to yard art. The weirder, the better. The current collection includes an entire flock of lawn flamingos, a clutter of garden gnomes, a cat-gargoyle, and a cement toad. I may have a problem, but I don't want a cure.
