We have lived in this house for 5 years now and I can't count how many times we have had to replace plants either from lack of proper minerals in our soil or complete burnout from the intense sun beating down on them all day. Of course, many times their demise is due to being such a tasty treat for the wildlife around here. Nothing is more frustrating than spending all day planting just to wake up and see all your hard work chomped up to little nubs.
So when we finally get a bloom from a new plant we tend to get excited. Especially when they are as beautiful as this Bird of Paradise .
I was out weeding, yet again, and noticed this lovely little bloom so I had to get a picture. This is located inside our birdcage in our backyard.
Since I was already out front I snapped a quick picture of these lovely pink blooms. They must not be on the diet plan for the deer and rabbits, or believe me, they would already be plucked clean.
