I was walking by my friends house down the street, and discovered she had two huge Donkey Ears (Kalanchoe Gastonis Bonnieri)...one on each post framing her front door. I gasped, looked closer, and took a picture. WOWZERS...it was nice to see these big beautiful specimens! I especially wanted my blogger pal, Mandy from A Few Of My Favorite Things, out in Texas to see. She sent me some plants of this species a few years ago, and mine are still small. I need to transplant and give them a bit more love and attention I guess. Obviously mine have been in semi shade, and it looks like they need full sun. Now that the weather is cooling down, I will move it out. Hope you all enjoy seeing this lovliness!!! Julie

What a gorgeous plant. I have never seen anything like it.

I haven't gotten to look up any of the names you found, but I'm going to later tonight. Thank you! It's nice to know that I'm not alone in spending hours looking for something! Do you want any of the new one I got? They're really cool like this one and seem to get so much larger. I have plenty to share, so just let me know.

Hi Julie *hugs*
Oh my goodness this plant is beautiful! That is a great specimen for sure. I've never seen one of these.

I hope you've had a good week and a good weekend and you are having great weather and lots of fun with your grandchildren too!

I haven't had a chance to blog as much lately...but you've been on my mind.

Hello Julie,
Thanks for your visit and Hubby and I had a wonderful weekend of apple picking and enjoying just being outside and enjoying the change in the air. Have been busy in the garden and getting my lists ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It is down hill from here on out. Hope your knee is doing better. Thanks for sharing the photos of your pumpkin carving. They came out cute. What a beautiful kalanchoe. Another one I have not see. Have a wonderful day.
Blessings.
