I wish I had taken pictures on Easter. Everything was in full bloom. It was awesome, I always have Easter at my house and this was the best year yet. I cut them all back last weekend.

Can I ask, Pelcianhead, which plants are the most interesting for you? I see you have great variety and is it difficult to take care of all of them because they are so different, is it also time consuming? i have trouble taking care of the few types I have, I mean I killed a lot of plants without knowing what I am doing which made me very sad...

I like tropical plants, roses and succulents the best. I try to pick plants that don't require a lot of care. I have lots of succulents, they don't require a lot of water or care. I love the flowers they put out every year. My plumerias don't require much care. I just feed them every once in a while and put them in the greenhouse every winter until around May. That is a bit of a chore when they get big! My roses require the most attention. I babysit my grandkids every day, so I am usually out in the backyard every day with them and do my deadheading and watering. My bromiliad and fern collection is in a rainforest area in my entryway and they get misted every few days. They are great when they bloom.
