Bromeliads finding new homes


Success! I am glad that plenty of my bromeliad pups found new homes.

Cleaning out the bromeliad beds in the front yard left me with lots of extra plants I usually give away to neighbors. This year, dividing the bromeliad clusters, I had more than enough so I posted 'Free Bromeliads' on the local forum. I honestly did not think I would get many requests but all went to their new homes in a matter of two days. And I am glad I did that, I met 32 happy gardeners all eager to try their hands on bromeliads. I can only hope they will be as smitten with bromeliads as I am.

Sunday morning




I can't believe how fast the Crepe Myrtles push out their leaves. Just last weekend we were trimming some branches off the leaf-less Myrtles and a week later we are sitting in the light shade enjoying our Sunday brunch in the sunken terrace.

Plant Sale finds






Last weekend was the annual Harry P. Leu Gardens Plant Sale and one benefit of being members is one hour shopping time before the general public is allowed to come in. Plenty of time for me to walk around once, see all the sellers and purchase the plants I 'need' ;-)
