Aloes broken by freezing (aloe maculata) might have misplaced most of their fleshy arms, however get this: they’re sending flower stalks for spring anyway. Go, aloes, go!
This is one other one with only a few “limbs”, however take a look at the dimensions of that flower stalk. These vegetation are so mutilated by the chilly that I have to change them with younger ones that I’ve stored within the storage. However I simply do not have a coronary heart. They’re making an attempt so exhausting.
We constructed a brand new fence alongside the east aspect property line final week. The outdated fence lasted about 14 years, however it was leaning and rotting. We adopted the pattern and opted for a horizontal plank fence this time.
The inventory tank is absolutely planted with Ursula, the agave variegated whale’s tongue (recovering from the December deep freeze after which being plucked from its pot with roots), plus a lot of oxblood lily bulbs and some lilies of rain, a future unifying area of silver horse ft…
…and a splash of colour from the native four-nerved daisy (Tetraneuris scaposa) and glass of wine (callirhoe involucrata).

It is easy to be okay with it now when the temps are delicate(ish). In spite of everything, extra solar, extra flowers. I hope I really feel the identical method this summer time.
I really like this time of 12 months within the backyard. All of the promise of spring is within the air, at the same time as reminders of final season linger somewhat longer. A toast to new beginnings, which is all the time the purpose of the backyard.
