All of that cold didn’t seem to stop the jasmine vines from growing up up up during December. It must have been just rainy and just sunny enough for the plants to be generally happy, which is delightful, although I would like them to grow faster because I am now really tired of looking at the neighbors’ house. It’s actually a pretty nice house, to be fair. I just don’t like looking at it. (And remember, that’s the whole point of the jasmine project, is to create a wall of delicious green which will obscure my neighbors’ house from view.)
Our plant to the north is still leading the pack. It’s now reaching up five vertical bits of the ugly trellis! At this rate the tower of jewels in the other yard will be taller very soon.
The middle plant, getting some new growth out.
As you can see, it is also getting its trellis on.
The plant under the peach is still not doing very much. But there is new growth! Remember when I was going to tear it out in frustration? Aren’t we all glad I didn’t do that.
And our plant to the south, also starting to make serious trellis inroads.
Yes. Jasmine flowers. In December! (I took these on Wednesday.)
