Boy, those squirrels do a lot of damage. I would have to figure out some way to get the better of them, instead of the other way around. Love you pictures, Mary. The Echinopsis subdenudata flowers are just beautiful!
Here's a picture of a little Acnthocalycium glaucum with a nice flower bud. Then here's picture of the A. glaucum after the squirrel knocked it off the deck to the ground!
Here's a pic of my purple split rock--After the squirrel decided it wasn't all that good! (I guess it's not enough that they are taking bites out of alll the tomatoes in the area! And no, they aren't looking for water-we have 2 birdbaths that are filled and refilled everyday.)
Here are pics of my Echinopsis blooming last week. there were 6 flower buds, and 2 flowers bloomed first then the other four. When I went out to take pictures in the early a.m., there were honeybees all over them! I took a bazillion pictures, but I will only post a couple/few! ;-D (Those bees were so covered with pollen, and their pollen sacs were exploding, they were so full! OK, maybe not exploding. ;-D They didn't seem to mind me snapping their pictures either.)
Freddy, is a dish garden just planting succulents in a dish? do they have drainage holes?
Thursday night I led, with the rest of the club, a group of 35+ attendees in creating dish gardens. We started with a mini-lecture based on my article, the gave each attendee the chance and help to select plants, create and finish off their gardens, all in less than 1-1/2 hours. Thanks to all the clubmembers that participated. Hope we have some new memberships as a result of the class.
Thank you Grant.
Nancy, I will keep you posted on how they do. I have about 10 or 12 different varieties of Epis that I got as cuttings and they are all growing well here. I have them on my back patio where they get morning and late evening light, but shade during the hottest part of the day.
Debra, I would love to hear how the Epi 'Curly Locks' does for you. I have no luck with them here.
Yaaaayy!! I just planted these two days ago and they're already sprouting! Epiphyllum, Curly Locks.
Beautiful pictures Grant!
