Beautiful @RosaCanDo.
Mine will be just little babies I think. It will be good to have an update on them every few months.

I loved growing them when I lived in Southern Arizona, they definitely thrive on heat and bright sun. Giant bushes of the things! I have always grown them since I moved back to colder climates and they don’t overwinter, but they do get pretty substantial in size by the end of the season and that makes me happy enough :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: I can just imagine how they grow well in Spain! I hope your babies do well.

Anybody has an idea what this is? Bought it earlier this spring, alI I remember is it’s perennial, does well in semi-shade and should give flowers. Not that it really matters what’s the name, I already like it :upside_down_face:

Isn’t Mullein tea an absolute powerhouse?

My sons sent me this plant for my birthday or Mother’s Day 2 years ago. I know it’s meant to be indoors, but had to choose death by sun or death by cat, so I chose the former.
It looks a bit beat up, but now it has 17 (seventeen!!!) flowers!

It’s special because my (30yr old) boys gave it to me.

I finally got to go pick up a couple of things at the nursery.

I thought a couple of rubber tree s would look good in the Catio.


And a fire stick clipping. They grown pretty nice without much care or water.

Moved my Snake plant. I think it might be getting too much sun. It seems too big and out of control. Anyone know if I can just cut them down a bit. They seem pretty indestructible if you don’t take care of them. Maybe a bigger pot. They finally have a forever home. And I’d like to keep them outside. They were my grandmother’s from her house in the 60’s in Lowell Ma. They’ve been through hell but keep coming back.

And there’s a Stella clone down by the coleus.

I like the coleus in honor of my sister and my trips to Guatemala

My white hydrangea turned a pink. Will it turn blue next @erntedank do they all start off white?

Love all your plants, but that new catio furniture isn’t getting past me. Beautiful!

Thanks Lisa.
Shes ordered everything on line. She won’t go into a store to shop. And it’s looking great. We didn’t actually have any of our own furniture. We usually just buy and sell it with the houses. Not this time. Can’t wait for a break to get the cats out there. We bought an air horn in case of predators like hawks or whatever bird of prey might be out there. It won’t be relaxing. Might have to think this part over. We still have the cats on deck though.

My last move!! :grimacing:

I’m envious of wifey’s online shopping skills. I have this fear my furniture would show up in dollhouse size. :joy:

That air horn is a great idea. I wouldn’t have thought about the predators until a fur baby went missing. :grimacing:

Your forever home is coming together nicely. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

No that’s funny :grin:

She scares me. I keep saying we need to go look. She only buys stick items that can be returned. Mostly reputable places like Crate And Barrel and Room and Board.

My son-in-law mentioned the hawks. I’d kill myself if something happened. We’ll make sure Benson is out there with us. He’ll protect us.

I love all the plants :heart::heart::heart:. My hydrangea is starting to bloom and I see blue :blue_heart:…I think it’s all the coffee grinds I’ve been feeding it …I read that coffee grinds can alter the acidic level and help the blue come out …:pray:t4::crossed_fingers:t4:
