more pics from around the yard...

Well, last Monday, my day off... I was out in the yard working and decided I'd take some pics of what's happening out there... The M. sonorensis v. craigii is just starting to bloom... Click on that link to see the whole plant and other stuff about it... This is one of the plants that I was really worried about. I didn't think it was going to make it through the winter, but it managed, although there is some dammage visible on the plant. I'm not gonna worry about it too much, I don't look as good as I used to either. We call it character.

Now, some of you may remember this plant from the absolute worst packing job ever...

This is one of five that I got in the mail... this one was outside to test hardiness, while the other 5 stayed inside for the winter. I really really thought I lost this one... after the last snow, I checked him, and the center growing tip was dark, almost black. I figured rot had set in. Turns out, not so much. He's just fine.

And the Yucca aloifolia... is blooming too... 2 stalks are up and open, and 1 is just starting out. Remarkable things aren't they?

And that's about it...


  1. I'm glad the cactus is fine. Those yuccas are gorgeous!

  2. Whoa...that Yucca is amazing!!! Will the plant die after blooming??? Oh, I hope not!!!

  3. Julie... the yucca will be fine. It's agave that die after blooming.

  4. Oh good...I couldn't remember if yucca died or not...sure do love that blooming action on this darn thing!!! :)
