Good Wednesday night everyone. Work was rough and continuous all day again...no lunch on M-T- or W until 3:30 every day. Too much going on....but it won't last forever. When I got home, my hubby and daughter and I went over to a Jewish Deli for dinner...it was great, and I even had a bowl of matzo ball soup! Here is a pic of directly east out my back screenroom, where you can see the solid afternoon rains today...if you go this direction for 2 miles you would be swimming in the Atlantic Ocean! Never mind the telescope out in the rain...it has never worked...I found it, so it just sits out there all the time until I pitch it, but I kinda like looking at it...I think it reminds me of my Dad, who is no longer with us, but he was a dreamer and astronomer!!!
Thanks to Lovely Plantings , I found out the best watering schedule for my big beautiful Bronze Tea Cup hybrid aeonium!!! Doesn't it look splendid! It has a bit of rain on it from todays showers coming into the screenroom, but it needed more water, and now it is so happy and perky! It's leaves at times would get very droopy, and it seems to need more water than all my other succulents. These guys are from the Canary Islands, where it must either rain more, or maybe they are closer to sea level to where the roots stay wetter. I don't really know...just making dumb guesses! Hee hee. Anyway, I appreciated the advise she gave me, and so does Miss Bronzy!!! She is such a showoff, isn't she??? I try not to love things just for their out and out beauty, but in her case, how can I help it!!! LOL
Update on these darn (and believe me, I want to say a DIFFERENT word...LOL...Kitten Ears:
These things can come and go faster than cakes in my house!!! They look like shi-, and then start fresh again, and round and round they go...almost to being such a freakin pain I nearly want to throw them in a trash pile...but yet I can't. They are cute when they want to be. My Kitten Ears after about 1 year:
OK...here is something major! I have been waiting for these things to get big enough to take a photo of for longer than a year. I believe I have finally gotten a close enough and sharp enough pic to possibly have someone be able to I.D. them for me! I believe they are either a Haworthia or a Gasteria. If anyone knows...please feel free to let me know. It has been a mystery all this time...I do not find anything like this in either category of my succulent books. Thanks in advance!!!
And that's all folks, for today! Talk to you again soon!
