As much as I love the many purple flowers the Ruellia puts out.... it is this time of year, when we've had a couple of good rain storms (well for Arizona anyway), I find myself cussing at this plant. It spreads like CRAZY!! What you see above is from 1 ONE UNO plant. It swallows everything else up and if I'm not careful, it will crowd out the other plants to their death. I walked around the corner of the house today and saw this hell of a mess and thought oh boy, you are going to need some serious... Continue reading

I know I have not been great at updating this blog. Okay I've been TERRIBLE. But I'm hoping to give it another shot and HOPEFULLY, I'll be better at it this time :-) Anyhoo....

He's on board, so we shall see. In the mean time, I'm filling my desire for this color with plants (and a few other things) :-) I recently filled this pot (old... Continue reading

Yes, applying mosaic to plastic is not ideal as it expands and contracts in hot and cold temps. I have found that the larger plumbing pvc seems to keep it's shape in all temps.

Hello I used pvc pipe for the bottom part of the fairy house and I used mastic as my adhesive. Its been in the garden for years and is doing just fine. The roof is made from chicken wire covered with drywall tape and cement. Most definitely a challenge. I hope that helps. Michelle
