Baby Emily fell asleep in the car, so I quickly took a few shots of some of my plants. Most are doing great, but a few suffered damage with the one freezing night here. Below, my Thimble Cactus is putting out some blooms (it's happy).
The Perle Von Nurnberg below is very happy...with a touch of water with the rain we have had today!
The collards are on week three of growth...lookin good...seemed to thrive in the cold air, thank God!!!
My hibiscus look the same as always! These peach ones, which I have been wanting to show for the last month, just seem to get to the bud stage, and then rarely open. Anyone know what is going on with that? They get the same amt. of sun, water, and fertilizer as my red ones, which you can see open fully and are usually covered. The peach and red are all planted in one row.
The hybrid Kalenchoe...the ones with 26 petals on each blossom...are looking good right now all bloomed out. I had planted about 15 of these plants in three different colors last year, but the sun and water situations took most of them out. These two are the best two left.
The Prickly Pear pad (ONE PAD) I had planted about 8 months ago (saved from the one that was cut down in the neighborhood)...is growing quite nicely...it has 8 pads now!!! No damage to it from the cold.
These next two are blurry (sorry)...but show my favorite plant...Mother of Millions...with damage...the leaves became white and waterlogged. I am hoping the whole thing wasn't taken out. It looks kinda rough. I think it will recover...I am gonna hope so anyway.
My Angelwing Begonias were really damaged. They had been under the covered front porch. I should have brought them in, but I couldn't think of everything! I have cut them back severely in hopes they will live.
Last but not least...the Christmas Cactus is gorgeous right now!
Happy upcoming week to all!
