Pictures fom my garden
Beautiful! I'm not familiar with the dudleya - are the leaves more like an aloe or an agave?
They are softer like aloes and do not have any pricks. Day and night , it is beautiful.
Hmmm, I'm going to have to learn more about the dudleya! Your flowers are gorgeous!
BEAUTIFUL blooms. LOVE all the pictures. Thanks for posting them. Ya gotta love this time of year. Have to say the 'face pot' is so so neat. I love different pots but rarely find anything as fun as that one. Now I'll have to be on the hunt for something just as exciting and different.
Thanks Cactusjumper. I have to say that when I saw it at the garage sale I was totally taken by it even though the lady that was selling it was telling me that lots of people fount it not comfortable to look at. I loved it. I think one can say that it was 'love at first sight'. LOL
It only cost $5.00 and did not even bargain.
RODICAP, I'm thinking you got a GREAT deal. One might even say, it was a steal. Don't you love it when that happens? lol
Rodica, are those clematis you have? I've always wanted to grow them but wasn't sure that I could be successful. What's your secret? They're beautiful!
Cactusjumper, I go to garage sales every Saturday with my son and granddaughter mainly to be with them but I love when I find those great bargains. You should see my outdoors chandelier. I will take a picture and post it so you can see how beautiful it is and it cost me only $15.00. In fact I have at least three big ones.
Some other bargains were some metal sculptures and one big metal sun that I need to hang.
Crista, you are right. Those are clematis. Marie is the queen of clematis but I do OK too.
The ones that I posted here are grown in big pots so I can control the watering, the fertilizing and the son exposure, but I have several of them in the ground. They need good soil that drains well with lots of compost and like most of the plants here, they do well with morning till early afternoon son and shade in the hottest part of the day. They prefer to have their 'feet' shaded, so you can add some ground cover plants at the time of the planting.
The ones that I posted the pictures from where bought in sale at Lowes last year. Make sure to go there periodically and see if they brought some. Sometimes Trader Joe's have them at a very good price. Good luck
Rodicap, look at all those treasures you find. I guess I'm going to have to stop at a few of the garage sales I often see. I'm a bit worried about doing that however. Lord knows what I'd be carting home. YIKES ! ! !
The left flower bed in my front garden. The front areas are where my very hard to survive plants usually not only grow but thrive. I have , as you will see, lilac, a hydrangea, poet's jasmine, clivia, a violet, one huge plants of acanthus mollis and an herb that is very hard to grow here, lovage,
First picture shows my Chinese lilac in bloom, a standard rose, a huge dutchmans pipe and some other plants more common here. The second one shows the lilac up close. The third and last is of my beautiful standard rose.
Thanks Judy. I can bot believe that I got such big flowers from clematis that are grown in pots.
