Spring Planting Larry

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)
