The Cereus have bloomed- this is one of about 50 more blooms to come- they are completely loaded with blooms. I have never seen them so full of blooms. This week I have been arriving early just so I can see them all. Today one is open, looks like about 4 will be waiting for me in the morning. The bees are already at work and happy.
This is such an interesting Kalanchoe to me- it looks like a Venus Fly Trap. We have several Kalanchoes but this is the most interesting I think.
I am happy to report that the front bed is full of the ice plant and the Calandrinia that I planted in there in February is big and full and happy. I can't wait for it to bloom again. I am still happy with this arrangement- everything in this bed is happy and getting along beautifully.
The Large Cigar Plants are beginning to bloom- I have been waiting to see these in person and it was worth the wait. No wonder they call this variety Candy Corn!
The Yellow Trumpet Vine is thriving and full of blooms- I like the orange one as well but the yellow is stunning to me.
And last but not least is a shot of my latest arrangement - I must admit I am happy with the way it turned out. I like how the colors all seem to bounce off each other. I have the St. Elmo Firecracker Ferns at the front, the Yucca rigida behind, then the Salvia Black and Blue then the Thyrallis. Behind the Thyrallis is the Bottle Brush which started coming into bloom yesterday.
