One of my Christmas gifts was a gift card for Ace Hardware. I decided to start working on the area that I look at from my kitchen window. I already have several red smoky bushes (that’s my name for them), several banana trees and several coffee trees.
So I took my gift card and bought enough bags of black cinder to start a path through the plants. I plan to add ground covers and several other plants that can fill in to give me something beautiful to see. It may take a few more bags of cinder to complete the path.
Another plant I’ve put out there is this year’s Christmas poinsettia. There is a small poinsettia left over from many years ago that hasn’t done much the past couple of years.
