Spring Break

hijole(9 Sunny California)February 20, 2014

I'm so excited that Spring is upon us I love the colors, & all the propagating that goes on at this time of year, The weather has been so nice that I got a jump start on my replanting and I cant wait to chop & cut my cacti & succulents and spread them out all over.

I guess when you get a little older (I did say a little) this is what you call Spring Break Lol... Gotta love it :)

I'm gray/green with envy at seeing your beautiful plants. I love how you've placed them. Who said succulents couldn't be lush.

Microthrix, You've picked a very nice hobby for your Spring break fun, just watch out for Lola, Echeveria Lola that is because whatever Lola wants Lola gets, Even in the garden Lol...

roselee, No need to be envious 0r start turning colors just start cutting & chopping and they spread out fast! Thanks for the post and whoever said succulents could'nt be Lush wasn't me (:

Katuskris,
Sorry about the Cold Snap in your part of the world, ever think about starting a Polar bear collection (: like the Old man cactus ? Hope it warms up Quick!

The colors are simply amazing! & the plants are so forgiving getting even more colorful with no water, I think they say, Stressing your Succulents to provide more color.

Water shortage? HA!!

Neysa, thats what Im taking about, Man if it gets any warmer I'll start thinking its Summer, my plants dont know how to act either and for that matter neither do I lol... Should I cut the plants or wait? 0mg !

Thxz for the complements neysa, I just love being in the garden minding my own business (plants.)

Chadec thats funny because your right, we get a few days @ 28ð decrees and everyone thinks its freezing here, truth is its always Spring in Southern California or Summer.

Just checked out your "cabin fever shopping trip" 0n your post - A couple new agave. Cool looking catch you got there.

Greg:

Indeed it is always Spring or Summer in your neck of the woods. You guys have it too easy out there!

I may live in the Arctic, but I'm a tropical guy at heart. And this horrific winter has sealed the deal, I'm moving south this year, come hell or high water. I would love to be surrounded outdoors by lovely plants like yours instead of a five foot mountain of snow outside my window, and the dull brown and grey of leafless trees.

Good job on your plants, all looking great.

What a very glossy finish this Aeonium has and the Sunburst also looks brilliant standing next to the Black beauty.

Well we did get a little rain today and Im happy because just a day before I splashed some Miracle grow on some of my plants.
