Whew! Your plants are beautiful - they take my breath away. And then I noticed the pots and had to gasp again. Thanks for sharing such beauty with us. Wow.

Amazing, Keith.

What's the story with that P. discolor? Did you whack it down to a stump at some point?

That just redefines cool and original. I am so impressed by people that are creative as you! Great job! Love the unusual plants and LOVE the way you made them your own with all the different pots! It's obvious a lot of love, knowledge, creativity and hard work went into all of those!

Thanks everyone!

T,
The Pachycormus was cut back. The previous owner had all growth toward the right. I'm going to train it to the left.

The Ipomoea does flower if I water it enough in the shallow pot. In a large container it flowers annually.

Those plants are really different and have a beauty all of their own. They look like they were left here by aliens and it is obvious that you take very great care of them.

Fantastic Keith!

Those are amazing plants! Which shows are you going to show them at this year? Are you by any chance going to the Central Coast (CA) Show and Sale this weekend?

Thanks for sharing your incredible talent of growing and being a great potter. Bravo!

Just finished Sacramento and Carmichael, next is Intercity. I want to do Central Coast but it always conflicts with holiday plans. One of these years I'll skip our annual get away and make the trip down. May do San Francisco in June.
