I trimmed the leaves off this Aloifloia to remove
the bump in leaves where it was trunck cut-
it also has about 4 1/2' of trunk..not being
caught by the Trachys anytime soon,if I can figure out how to cover it....also,last night
I trimmed about half the leaves off the 2 smaller ones
opening up some light for Protoamericana,T.Nanus ETC.

Looking great! What is the flower in the first and 4th pics? Very nice. The aloifolia looks awesome. How many year old now? That didn't have any trunk to speak of when you planted it, did it? Any before pics?

Wow, those castor beans are really taking off. I thought you lost your opuntia imbricata, but it is getting big too. Those late frost didn't hurt your butterfly bushes either I see. Great job!

Very nice Jim! I'm not usually one for flowers, but I do like that you're incorporating them into your plantings. They look great. Nice color and interest. How are your Louisianas doing? Any significant growth yet?
