Happy Easter! I hope that everyone is enjoying a nice weekend! I have always been one of those festive type people. To me, every holiday should be celebrated with lots of good food and of course presents to yourself! And being that I saved so much money by making my own succulent wreath last week I had my eyes set on a brand new agave parryi. I had an inclination about a nursery in Richmond (close to Vancouver airport) that I needed to visit called Phoenix Perennials. I didn't take any photos because they were still very much setting things up - probably due to our abysmal start to spring. I was fortunate, however, to be given a tour of the production areas where I spotted some agave friends! Struck with a moment of incredibly weakness, I bought two!!!!
So without further withdraw, meet my newest Agave Ovatifolia!!
and my new AGAVE PARRYI!!!! I have been lusting after a nice agave parryi of comparable size for far too long!
Here they are nicely settled into their new homes.
The lounge chairs even came out to celebrate!!!
I also found this wonderful sedum palmeri that I have been hunting for!
It is finally feeling like real spring! Even the bananas agree!!!
Just when I thought I had gone way overboard with new plant acquisitions.... I came across this wonderful little olive that I have named "Ollie"
Who could resist such a graceful plant with those gorgeous blues and greens! NOT ME!!
What could make all of this even better?! Tickets to a Jamie Durie presentation at Cedar Rim! It's official I'm completely out of control!
