Today was rainy, as the will be the rest of the week. The plants are drinking it up, especially the weeds. Isn't the bird of paradise just huge? I'm hoping it will get to a blooming size soon.My daughter spent the weekend with my parents and of course she came home with presents. This bromeliad in a coconut shell is very neat. You can see how the "flower" is really a modified leaf as one of the leaves is actually turning red. I have no idea how to take care of these guys, so any advice is welcome. Julie, did you hear that?
Isn't this cactus cute? It looks like a scoop of ice cream. My little one has been pretending to lick it all afternoon.
