|June mix 2005
The Epiphyllum oxypetalum has been busy this month, we got two or three flowers a few days in a row. I have posted them many times, but these are somewhat unusual. I took these pictures on June 17. at 6:30am. Sometimes on cooler mornings they stay open a little longer than usual. The temperature on the deck was 58 degr F and the flowers had the early sunshine on their faces. Pretty!
|A variegated Hoya kerrii - it followed me home in the fall of last year.
I have been growing it together with my sun loving orchids, it is now flowering in the cage outside.
|Opuntia patch in our backyard
This patch is growing and flowering in the same spot for the last 25 years.
Knowing the origin of the plant - after a lot of checking I came to the conclusion that this is most likely O. humifusa.
See below the close up.
|Unidentified Sempervivum - most likely Sempervivum tectorum.
This is one of those pretty pots of "Hens and Chicks" one finds at local nurseries. This is sitting on our front steps flowering along.
