A little grumpy this evening because between 3:00p.m. and 6:00 p.m. while we were home, a thief decided to take my three Agave parryi 'J.C.Raulston' from our front steps. I'd been happy that they had made it unmolested this long and just figured that maybe folks in this area didn't like them or something.
Here they were last year when I'd just re potted them from their nursery pots. It surprised me that they'd put on some growth and were nearly covering the gravel mulch.
One wouldn't want to have a post be entirely upsetting so here are a couple of things that have made me smile recemtly:
The new leaves of this Schefflera delavayi are all nicely incised, a nice contrast to my other S. delavayi that has very smooth edges.
The topiary trees by the back steps still look good there even when the brugmansias came outside to join them.
Happy gardening everyone!
