Well, today I found myself walking through the college gardens again, and paying particular attention to the succulents there. I noted that the gardens are under cared for right now. I suppose it may just be due to the hot temperatures and no one wants to be out there. I wonder how they can even attempt to keep all of the pine needles cleared off the plants.
I had been looking at my Stapelia gigantea wondering when it would bloom again for me for the second time, and I found the mother plant (the one my peice originally came from) here, with buds! How exciting. I will try and get back over to get some good close ups of the carrion flowers when they open (I HOPE)!
Enjoy the tour of the garden!
