Look what followed me home today :)

aftermidnight Zone7b B.C. CanadaSeptember 9, 2012

Well the morning started out overcast and coolish so we decided to wander off down island for a drive, we stopped at a road side farm market and picked up some freshly picked corn for dinner.

On the way home the truck turned off the highway (it has a mind of it's own ya know) it decided it needed a rest and just happened to stop in the parking area of this neat little garden center, well it needed a rest poor little thing and time to digest all that gas it'd just devoured.

As I wandered aimlessly around killing time while the poor little thing got it's second breath, somehow, don't ask me how a few little pots followed me right up to the cashier so, after mulling it over for some time (two and a half seconds) I thought I'd better pay for them because if they followed me out to the truck I might get accused of trying to make off with them, right?

So a little Anacampseros lubbersii, a Echerveria 'Frosty', Fang and Lizard lips came home to live with me....and that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Oh Kathi, I know just how you feel, a couple of years ago I decapitated a standard fuchsia that had taken me 4 years to make, you got it, by yanking on a hose that was stuck on something, unfortunately the yank worked:(. I just love 'Fang', he got a new pot today.

Beautiful plants!! And I understand the way you'll battle with a hose. I've busted limbs off things fighting with the dam. hose any number of times this summer. It's supposed to be one that will not kink up all the time, and I don't think those exist.
