Back in December a good friend from Florida sent me some lemons that she picked off a lemon tree growing in her yard. I decided to see if I could get the seeds to germinate and maybe grow a lemon tree or two for myself… Well success!! I planted aprox. 9 seeds and surprise… They ALL sprouted and are growing!🍋🍋🍋

Then I read on-line that you could “root” a pineapple top… 🍍So I gave that a try, success again!! I actually have two! No fruit yet… But as I understand it, the pineapple I rooted may not produce… That’s ok with me. I’m just tickled pink that my gardening trials are working!🍍

The hummingbirds are buzzing! My sister-in-law fills the feeders twice a day! I tried to count them… They’re just too fast 😊

Everyone loves my knitted chicks, I’m finding the best yarn for the body is acrylic Bernat brand yarn. I don’t have the label here or I’d give you more 411 on this yarn😬

Temps got down to the low to mid 50’s here this morning, fog was starting to burn off by 9:00 am. Everyone is commenting on the low humidity and the the cooler temperatures, in this area, Washington D.C., August is a hot,humid miserable month. This summer has been very nice.
