Larry's all ready for spring planting, with a basket full of 12 of his favorites. I have to agree with him on his selection, all of which have been popular for the last 80-100 years, as all of the packets are from seed catalogs from the 1910's - 1930's.
I potted up 9 cuttings from my Stapelia gigantea, which was given to me by a friend nearly 10 years ago; these are destined for the Spring Plant Swap on the 21st so I can share my friend's gift with others he has never met.
Here are some of the flowers blooming in my gardens in the last few days.
|This Asiatic lily bloomed yesterday, just in time for Easter|
|One of the last Prince Alfred daffodils|
|I replaced the stock in Butch's baskets w/Ice Plant 'Red Surprise'|
|Tulips continue to bloom in the bulb bed|
|Climbing Golden Showers is finally putting on a show|
|Echeveria 'Dondo' blooming (originally thought this was going to be a pup)|
