A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of working at Jungle Fever Exotics, one of my favorite nurseries. Poking around the back of the greenhouse, I saw this. I didn't know that opuntias would do that. Is that adorable or what?
This opuntia basilaris caught my eye a few weeks before and I had decided that it would come home with me at the end of the day but a very nice couple came in and fell in love with it. I get as much of a thrill out of selling something that I think is cool to someone who'll love it as I do when buying it myself. Vicarious plant shopping - fun!
Just up the street from Jungle Fever is a small neighborhood grocery store that's been there forever. Recently, this cheerful mural appeared on the side of the building. It makes me smile everytime I see it!
Hope you all have the best weekend ever!
