Grant, I love the broken terracotta pots in your arrangements! I saw them at new hardware store last week for $1 each and was so tempted to buy a heap mainly for my bulbs. But at that price I could afford to break them and do some succulent arrangements, as yours look brilliant! Thanks for the idea....

Thanks, Mo, I appreciate it.  I arranged the little "pot" to be angled to make sure water runs out of it quickly.  The little plants seems very happy with it. 

We would love to see your pics too.  Good luck with them.  Usually I download pics from my camera to my computer, and then use the picture image above where I'm typing right now, to browse/search for the picture on my computer, and then select it.  Good luck.

In the meantime, here is an Astrophytum capricorne flower bud full of promise.  Happy gardening everyone!

Fun updates all, keep them coming.  Looking forward to your pics, Freddy.  Thanks for the nice words on the agave/Euphorbia, John, I appreciate it.

Just for fun, here's a pic of a small pot I've been enjoying this week.  It's an old broken terracotta pot that I planted with some succulent Euphorbias three years ago.  Each was a single rooted stem and they've actually grown quite a bit.  I know, I know, it's sort of tacky, but it's sort of fun too, and who doesn't enjoy looking at nice, happily growing succulents, right??  Wilson the tennis ball included to show relative size.  

I hope you'll take a quick look and enjoy.  These get morning sun and afternoon shade, and water maybe once every day days.  Keep your pics and updates coming too!  Happy gardening!

Just got home from a Celebrate Life journey. Got some great pics and memories.  Will take some time but got some great pics of Monterey Bay, Pigeon Point lighthouse, Alcatraz, Fisherman's Wharf, Martinez Marina, Yosemite.  Hope to share them in some sort of progression.

Grant – that is a beautiful Agave parryi!  Every time I see the photos of you gardens I get such enjoyment.  Really, you are a masterful landscape artist.  Thanks for posting so often!

Hi everyone, just for fun here's a quick and casual pic of an Agave parryi and some Euphorbia rigida in my front garden.  Both are interesting, architectural plants that need very, very little care.  I'm sure most of you are already super familiar with them.  I really like them and I hope you do too.  Happy gardening all!

BIG Dahlia Bloom

"Joseph, if you want to grow fabulous dahlias (not the low growing kind), they must be staked. What the hubby and I do is put in a tomato ladder and an 8 foot steel stake at the base of each plant at the time they are planted. We…"
