Big time words there, Beachplants! Great angles and curves to the beds and nice plant placement. Love the whole thing, you really made a big transformation!

Seeing the plant growth you mention is fascinating and it doubles in fun with the 'before & after' pictures...

Isn't funny how when you first put the plants in the ground, it looks kind of bare and you think 'this will never fill in'....... Then seemingly out of nowhere - the beds fill up and takes on a totally different look.

Hope to see more PIG pics like this, it's a nice succulent jolt ;-)!

Thanks, glad you found it interesting.

I was looking at the bigger aloes, they did not grow much in height, but boy did they add weight. These plants all remained in pots for 3 - 5 years and they are well travelled.

Rian,

Aren't the plants PIG'd just the healthiest ones, too! Your gardens are working works of art (as all of ours are, one guesses) - it's nice to be able to say 'Viva la evolucion!' in pictures.

It is always in a "state of flux" if that is the right wording to use. In another few years I think it would be like you used the "bold" function, more pronounced!

Im totally jealous. I can grow 1 aloe outside in my zone, maybe 2 with protection.

Really nice job. Your garden is looking great.

Thanks - you know I will say this 10x over - I have the utmost respect for people who have to basically restart their gardens every year after winter. I find that amazing!

Rian,

That's funny that you mention that, as I was explaining to someone the other day about growing in San Diego - you could literally drop something on the dirt and in a month or two it's rooted. Up here in Kamloops,it's a different ball game (although I did pull up what I thought were three Sedum plants that had died and, lo and behold, they're in leaf - I've got to get them PIG'd).

Oh oh! If that's what happened from Feb to June, me thinks this time next year you will be wanting new homes for some of those babies! That rock in the back of the last photo sure has some lovely color in it too!
