I stopped on my way to work this morning to snap a picture of this "Arizona-ish" garden! Rocks, and arid succulents abound! I just love the look of it...and it is surrounded by blue Plumbago! It looks great year round!
My Pagoda is turning pink around the edges in full sun! I think it is very beautiful. Magestic is more like it, actually!
My grafted cactus is so neat...I wish the top would fan out a little more for a real showy effect! The color is nice in this one.
My Euphorb is about 2.5 feet high now! He just gets what little, if any rain water outside in full sun. He is very cool looking...I should give him a name...please submit to me if you can think of a cool name for him...he is definately a boy!!! LOL.
My pencil plant is really growing! I'm not sure at what size I should repot him (I think he is a boy too)!!! He is just so airy...hard to know when...his branches are starting to hang down lower than the plant...I am wondering if I should move him to something with height...like a tall ceramic vase-like thing. I saw a picture of one of these plants that was like 6 ft. tall, and very unusual looking...it was inside but in a huge open room for viewing...you would almost need a museum for it at that size! I guess I could try and grow it that big outside as an experiment...but then I have to figure out some sort of tall, thin container for it to grow up, out and down the sides of. Suggestions welcome, for sure!
My String of Peas, or String of Pearls is so cute. I need to get it into a pretty pot one of these days. I keep thinking I should pot it with a few other succulents in one pot, for some drama with this plant cascading down! What do you think???
Happy Wednesday (tomorrow), everyone!
