Who doesn't like surprises? Well, I was outside the other day admiring my little aloe aristata when I noticed something odd about it. Whats that in the center? And then I realized, not only did this aloe overwinter, it is going to have blooms! It kind of made me feel like a proud parent.
This isn't really a surprise, another flax... but the surprise was finding it for just $1.98!
And if you were wondering what plants made it home with me from cedar rim the other day ... Echeveria Glauca. I planted a couple of these in the garden last summer and then moved them in late fall. I did not think that they would survive especially with such a late re-planting in the season.
But it turns out they are super tough. This one is nestled between a couple of rocks that no doubt provided some shelter.
These two were left out in the open with no shelter whatsoever. They are a little bit beat up at the moment but they certainly will stage a nice come back in the weeks to come.
