Ok, I realize there are other plants out there other than these Cereus that I have posted a few times but I just saw THIS. A fruit! Who knew. See, still learning so much. I thought it was a going to be a purple flower and got all excited and went to show Michael who informed me it is a fruit. Who knew. Pretty cool though.
I went out to the nursery for a bit just to visit, I have missed it so much. Everything looks so happy and is in bloom. The Pride of Barbados that I planted have just exploded along the fence line. I can't believe it! I planted these just at a month ago and when I did they were really not that much to look at - look at them now! I snapped a few photos of some things but will take more when I am more up to it. I can say however, that you can totally tell it rained, if only a little. The plants have really responded. It is crazy (in a good way) how much they really seem to transform with a little bit of rain.
I am worried my little succulent pot that I planted is getting too big for it's britches. I guess I will have to put it in a bigger pot. I really like this style of pot though. I got it from the guy next door that sells pots. I am not so much into this style of pottery but I did like this one as it was plain and straight lines and thought it looked good with the succulents.
This is a close up of the Desert Rose bloom which I think is so pretty. This is a new one for me and I really like it.
I am undecided on the mix here. I think it just needs a little more time. The Tecoma have exploded as they tend to do, the Furcrea still looks really good and the Ice Plant is growing like mad. I guess it is just not done doing what it is supposed to do. The Pink and White Salvia (at the back) was cut back, I think when that fills back out (and it is on it's way) I will like it more. I am happy with each plant individually, the Hamelia looks good, the Queen Victoria, I just don't know... I guess it just needs a little more time to fill out. Like I said, when I look at them individually I am happy, it is just as a whole I guess it isn't my favorite, at least right now. I am going to give it a little more time then I might mix it up.
