Spring has Sprung and Misc. Sweetstuff Things

I am so excited for Spring to be here.  I have been so busy working in the garden I have't blogged about the San Francisco Flower and Garden Show.  But it is coming.  I wanted to show you a little bit of what has been going on in the garden.

This is one of my favorite nurseries to go to in Roseville.  They always  have lots of succulents and tons of other cool gardening stuff.  You name it they have it  I have been slowly but surely replacing my rollers for their's that can hold up to 500 pounds ad they won't break.

Remember the greenhouse I bought and used last winter?  We kept up the poles and used them to attach shade cloth so I have more growing area without the intense Sacramento sun.  It is fantastic!

I found this awesome new red hybrid Aeonium and added it to a pot in the Aeonium corner.  It's name is mini ming!

I love this aloe in the front side bed but the leaves are unusually sharp.  Don't now the name darn nit!

This beautiful pot I named Lola was potted with crassula tiny tim last year and has grown a lot.  I love her!

I am in love with Aeonium mardi gras!  The colors are superb and it grows like a beast!

 My very first Mark Muradian pot!  I
fell in love and knew I would be planting Perle von Nurnberg in it!

This is Echeveria crinoline ripples!  I am in love with her juiciness, color and curls!

My sister and I will be repotting this soon.  Should be quite a chore!  But it really needs to be done.  This is my huge Euphorbia enolpa.

This is a glass top to a light fixture!  It was begging to be planted.  I used moss covered mesh over the hole so dirt will not fall through.  Aeonium kiwi is in the back and aloe bright star in front!  Red lava top dressing!

That's about it for now!  Have a super weekend!

It's Another Beautiful Day!

Don't gorgeous fun containers add a lot to the tickle of enjoying succulents? A special container can take things to another level. You have some real beauties that show off your succulent choices wonderfully.
