(shrimp plant) Justicia brandegeana
Harvey the Monarch Caterpillar (I only have one so I named it)
A pretty weed in the carrot family.
Two leaves make another leaf between them. Can you see it? (Loquat tree)
Gravel for the project. I scrape it from the road gutters before it washes down the storm drain.
Healthy root system of an agave plant.
Transplanting a new agave.
Agave 'Sharkskin'. This is a cross between two agaves to form a beautiful hybrid. It is one of the most beautiful agaves I've grown.
More info on this agave:
The first phase of the project is complete. The second phase will get rid of the carpet grass. This will be replaced with drought tolerant ground covers and gravel. I'll plant about 5 blackfoot daisies around these agaves. I can already envision the little white flowers intermingling and contrasting with the spikes. I have looked forward to this day for a long time.
It's going to look really good by summer if all goes well and nobody runs over it with a car.
Have you ever had one of your flower beds run over by a car? I have...twice!
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you get some nice gardening weather soon.
